Traveling/Caring for Cake

I would like to pick up my order. What should I be prepared for?

If you would like to pick up your cake..
Tiered Cakes:
-Need to travel with absolute safe care! The vehicle it is in needs to be a flat ground surface (can’t be put on the seat or on someone’s lap)
-Driving needs to be slow and steady (can’t go back and forth in the lanes on the highway) When you get to a stop sign or stop light begin slowing down well before to give enough time to not let the car jerk!
-When you arrive at the cakery we can help you put it in your car, but know once you leave the cakery it is out of our hands and we will not be held responsible if something were to happen. We put dowels in each tier to properly hold them up and then one down the entire center so the cake is very sturdy, but remember…it is still delicate!
