The decorating part is a huge part of the design, and it is compulsory we are the only ones that do this. This includes the placement of fresh flowers!! As a Cake Decorating Business, we need to be the ones decorating the cake to ensure we can take whole credit and pride in our creations. We ask that you communicate this with your Florists, Stylists, and designers as early as possible. We take this policy very seriously as it protects Honey-Belle Cakery’s reputation as a brand. We cannot have a cake that has been made by us and decorated by someone else with our name on it.

  • Cakes may need to be stored in refrigeration at your venue, especially if we are not confident in the room temperature the cake is being kept or displayed in upon delivery. It is up to you to ensure there is a fridge or cool room option available at your venue for Honey-Belle Cakery to utilise for your cake to be stored in.

  • In the warmer seasons, cakes may develop some condensation on the outer buttercream coat. This is caused when the cool cake comes out of refrigeration into a warmer environment. We will do all we can to remove most of this condensation though please understand it is not something we can stop from happening.

  • Your cake may be required to stay in refrigeration for and extended amount of time due to hot weather. Any advice given by Honey-Belle Cakery in regard to cake storage, display and cutting time dependant on weather, should be listened to and taken seriously. If you choose to not take our advice and recommendations, Honey-Belle Cakery cannot take responsibility for any damage cause to a cake by weather.

This cutting guide is a sheet that contains all information on your cake: Description, flavours, size, dietary requirements, and any further information they need to know about your cake). It also includes serving details: How your cake is being served, how it needs to be cut, slice sizes and instructions on how to dissemble and cut to ensure you receive the right amount of cake slices. This cutting guide should be followed by the kitchen staff at your venue or caterers. Honey-Belle Cakery does not lay at fault if this guide it not followed correctly.

  • Cakes with more than one tier are delivered by Honey-Belle Cakery. This is non-negotiable.

  • If you are picking up a single tier cake, we recommend you place the box flat on the passenger side floor or in the boot of your car with the aircon on cool. Honey-Belle Cakery will provide you with a piece of thin Rubber Grip Mat that should be place under the cake box on the car floor. This will ensure your cake box does not slide around on the car floor when you are driving.
