Order Policy

Thank you for considering Gateau du Ciel for your next event. I take each opportunity offered to me as a chance to showcase something personal, unique and beautiful to add an extra sweet flavor to your occasion. Each GDC creation is done with precision and skill with a spirit of excellence. My products are created with fine quality ingredients to provide a great palette experience. My goal is to elevate your sweet desires.

 

Gateau du Ciel requires a 2 week notice for any order. Late orders, are orders placed for less then 2 weeks and cannot be promised and are based on my availability.  The late charge of $25 will be added and full payment due if confirmed.  Therefore, it is best to secure your date immediately.  Please be advised that your inquiry does NOT secure GDC's commitment, as orders are secured on a paid first come first serve basis. All on time orders require a 50% non-refundable retainer upon ordering to secure the date.  The final payment is due ONE week before the order is due.  Money exchanges will NOT be made upon pick up or delivery. You will be responsible for any fees that are applied according to the payment method used. Therefore, you will need to confirm which method of payment will be made. Securing your order consents you to being informed of this.

Although GDC goods may not contain nuts or other allergens, these goods are NOT prepared in an allergy free environment. Therefore, securing your order, consents you to being informed of this and it will be your responsibility to inform your guests. 

Feel free to provide samples of anything relating to the theme of your event.  The more details you give, the better I can quote you.  Keep in mind that cake pans are calculated per serving based on a 1”x2” cut slice.  For any ideas based on an already produced cake, by another company, please understand it will not be replicated exactly due to copyright laws. Something about it will be altered using my judgment, to make it a bit more original unless you are specific about a change.  Securing your order consents your agreement to this.

Gateau du Ciel foundational prices are also based on the decorating medium used.  Remember what you are requesting, sometimes can only be made in a specific medium.  Not everything can be done with buttercream and consider some factors that alters the taste are colorings, i.e. darker colors require much coloring.   Also there are different buttercreams to achieve different goals.  I will always suggest the best option for your request.  

Please review the starting pricing below and contact me for customizing your request. GDC is open to offer suggestions to accommodate your budget. The complexity of a cake design is the determining factor of the final cost.  Complexity includes all details for cake, including cake board and flavor to minute detail being made.  If you have decorations for your cake, including a topper please inform us and provide it or a picture of it in order to take it into consideration when finalizing your project. 

I also offer other sweet treats as individuals or packages for your sweets table or as favors. Inquire if interested.

Please understand that the ability to create custom edible art is a unique talent that yields breath taking masterpieces.  Therefore prices and my service cannot be compared or negotiated.  This inquiry allows for one quote per order.  Going back and forth with pricing will not be responded to, therefor please have an allocated budget known and secured for your cake, desserts and treats. PLEASE NOTE, YOUR BUDGET SUPERCEEDS SERVINGS.  For example, if you want to serve 40 people and your budget is $200, based on the design and/ or flavor you are requesting, it will deduct from the servings requested in order to stay within the budget.  I do my best to stay within the means you’ve allowed. Therefor please be true to your event in the effect you’d like and what you want for you and your guests .
