The cake serving chart below is a useful guide when you are deciding on the size of your cake. It includes the cake sizes and how many servings you will get with coffee and dessert size portions. Also included is a cutting guide diagram which outlines how wedding cakes are usually cut at reception venues. Serving amounts are a guide only and are based on a 2” by 1” slice commonly served at receptions. Dessert slices are usually bigger which should be taken into account when ordering your cake.

Every effort will be made by Aida’s Sweet Treats to fulﬁll the expectations of the client as understood at the consultation. However due to the subjectivity of the work and the different decorators involved there may be slight variations. There are also structural limitations when using cake as a sculptural medium. As a consequence Aida’s Sweet Treats will need to make certain decisions during the process of manufacture that may affect the style of decoration, proportion or structure of the cake.

If you cancel your order, your balance payment is refundable minus an administration fee of $100 provided we are notiﬁed at least 10 business days prior to the event.

Every measure is taken to ensure that your ﬁgurines are made to the highest standard; however they are made from icing and as a result are very fragile. We are happy to provide care instructions for your ﬁgurines and if cared for properly they will last for years; however we do not accept any liability for your ﬁgurines once they have been removed from the cake (photo evidence required when ﬁgurines break whilst on the cake).
