Returns & Refunds
Due to the tedious, handcrafted nature of our products, we are unable to provide refunds or exchange custom baked goods. Baked goods collected by you or a designated party are considered "Accepted". All products are the responsibility of the customer once it leaves our bakery. Refunds requested due to decorating style, color shade, or general decoration design will not be honored.
We make everything from scratch and bake to order. Cake flavor and texture are subjective. Refunds requested due to flavor or texture after the baked goods have been accepted and picked up will not be honored. Keep in mind variety in temperature and humidity may impact the flavor, overall design, or texture of the cake to some degree. Please understand we cannot control changes in texture, color, or shape due to weather conditions.
You may qualify for a partial refund of the total amount paid in the form of store credit if the product is brought back and the quality of the flavor or texture is determined to not meet our standards. Quality determination is at the sole discretion of The Twisted Baker. Cakes must be brought back to us within 24 hours of pick up/delivery – please call or email us promptly to let us know of the issue. Please understand that we cannot issue refunds for cakes that are not returned to us. The amount of store credit is based on the amount of the product returned to us and what we determine the quality to be. Store credit of any kind will not be issued if you do not contact us in person, by phone or email within 24 hours of pick up/delivery.
