Shipping

The U.S.A. Nationwide and coast to coast (sorry not Hawaii or Alaska yet).

No, you may not ship to a P.O. Box, due to our items being perishable we only allow shipping to a street address to ensure that your gift arrives in perfect condition.

No, you can not ship gifts to a Foreign or an A.P.O./F.P.O. destination yet. We hope to add this service soon.

Orders are timed to arrive-by the date you specify. 

We understand the importance of gifts arriving by the selected delivery date. The smiles, the awe, the surprise is the reason we fulfill orders by the date specified. We'll do everything in our power to ensure on-time delivery.

Please double-check your delivery date and address during check out to make sure both are correct. Very rarely there are FedEx/UPS shipping delays which will be investigated, if these delays do happen we are happy to refund the full shipping cost on the order.

For any issues due to emergency or severe weather conditions that affects all packages in the delivery area, we cannot be held responsible for uncontrollable events as FedEx/UPS considers these indisputable. Insufficient/incorrect addresses are also the responsibility of the customer, so please double even triple check the delivery address correct as this is out of our control.

On the product detail page, below the information section, there is a calendar. You can click on a date in that section, which will be highlighted red. Please be sure to double-check your delivery date and make sure your recipient will receive their gift in it's best form by the date selected.

"What happens if I entered the wrong shipping address or forgot to include the apartment/house number?" We have been there and understand that mistakes happen. Customers are responsible for providing the correct shipping information prior to shipping. We will ship to the shipping address given at the time of checkout. SendaCake is not responsible for packages delivered to an incorrect address. Reshipping of eligible packages returned to SendaCake due to an incorrect address can be re-shipped at the customer’s expense. Please contact our customer service team as soon as possible to update your delivery address if you see any discrepancies. Once a package has been assigned a tracking number, we can no longer update the shipping address. For these reasons, we do not offer refunds or credits for insufficient or incorrect addresses that cause such delays/package returns.

We are unable to provide an exact time of delivery as it is completely up to the FedEx/UPS driver in the delivery area on that day. While most packages are delivered earlier in the day and the recipient should get it when they normally receive packages from FedEx/UPS, we cannot guarantee a specific time.

We have extensively tested our shipping methods and cakes will arrive ready-to-eat and do not need any refrigeration but if you would like to save the cake for more than 5 days we suggest freezing them to extend the shelf life. Only our large full size cakes will arrive cold or frozen with dry ice and dry ice handling instructions due to the nature of their size and ingredients used.

*ALLERGY INFORMATION: Unless otherwise noted, products contain milk, wheat, soy and egg, and were produced on equipment that processes peanuts, almonds, hazelnuts, pecans, walnuts. Our facility is not Gluten Free.

At times unforeseen problems occur and a shipment arrives late. Our policy regarding failed shipments is very simple. If there is a delayed issue with the FedEx/UPS carrier then we will investigate the situation, but we can issue a shipping refund if the cake doesn't arrive within the next business day (Monday if Friday/Saturday is the selected delivery date). If the package does not arrive or comes more than 1 business day late (past Tuesday if Friday/Saturday is selected) then we can offer a full refund on the order. However, packages marked as delivered, but 'not received', are the customer’s responsibility to locate. Please contact the carrier, as they can check the status of the delivery scan and escalate an investigation on your behalf. We do not issue refunds on lost packages. If the failed shipment is due to an error on the purchaser or the recipient's part (as in a gift), including but not limited to, an incomplete or incorrect address given, receiver not in, special shipping instructions made at the request of the recipient, refused deliveries, or orders left out and either stolen, ruined or damaged after delivery, we cannot refund or replace the shipment.

***Tips to ensure your satisfaction***:

Please make sure all the information entered for your shipment is correct. If you are shipping to a business, college campus, apartment, etc. we strongly advise researching the institution's shipping policies to ensure that you include all necessary information required by said business/institution (i.e. delivery addresses that differ from the business address, and/or apartment, dorm room, college mailbox, suite, house numbers).

Make sure that the shipment is expected and will be received the day it is to be delivered.

If an incorrect delivery date is ordered, cannot be received please let us know and if possible we will schedule delivery for another day (via email or phone) please note that we cannot always accommodate these requests but will try our hardest. If you have a doorman or a front office, make sure they are aware that a perishable shipment is coming. Make certain they will receive it and notify you immediately upon arrival. Please remember that this order is perishable and it is imperative your recipient opens it that day for the best condition. If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail us at hello@sendacake.com or give us a call at (206) 709-5001 and leave a voicemail.
