6. Compliments & Complaints ...


Dream Cake Designs by Dianne is a home based registered and inspected professional cake making business with full public & product liability insurance and a 5 star hygiene rating.  I work very hard to deliver full customer satisfaction and every care is taken to make sure that the cakes provided are of a high quality and decorated to a professional standard. I really do appreciate feedback as this is helpful to customers who may not already have ordered a celebration cake from Dream Cakes.

If you feel that you have reason to make a complaint may I respectfully request that I am contacted no later than 24 hours after delivery/collection so that I may assess the cause for complaint. If the complaint is relating to the quality or bake then you will need to return at least 2/3rds of the cake within 24 hours the cake in order for the complaint to be investigated.


To enjoy sponge cake at its best, it should ideally be consumed shortly after being cut to avoid it drying out ~ and in any case is generally best eaten within 48 hours of collection or delivery


Any formal complaint will need to be put in writing (email is fine) so that there can be no misunderstandings as to the nature of the complaint.

Dream Cake Designs appreciate your willingness to follow these provisions,

and look forward to creating a truly unique cake designed just for you
