  • General Information 

The bestSweetPotatoes, LLC respects the privacy of our customers, business partners, employees and job applicants and other visitors to our websites who may choose to provide personal information. We recognize the need for appropriate protections and management of personal information that you provide to us. This Privacy Statement will assist you in understanding what types of information we may collect, how that information may be used, and with whom the information may be shared. 

  • When Ordering

All orders are to be paid in full when the order is placed either by phone or in person at the bakery.  All online orders for In-Store pickup are paid in advance in full online when order is placed on www.bestSweetPotatoes.com. This includes online shipper orders,  etc. 

 

  • Tiered Cakes and traveling with them…

Multi layered cakes, ie. “Tiered Cakes” are to be handled with the utmost care!  When picking up any cake it is required that it is located in an already cool vehicle and on a flat surface (NOT on the car seat where the cake will be leaning). It is also recommended that some sort of skid resistant material be used to keep the cake box from sliding when traveling. Use extreme CAUTION when driving. Stopping short will cause the cake to slide and could possibly result in the cake coming apart. If the cake is not going to be served soon upon delivery it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that the cake be refridgerated to keep the cake from having any issues and coming apart. Once you leave the bakery with a tiered cake bestSweetPotatoes is NOT responsible for any damages incurred to the tiered cake as it is out of our control. If you contact us within our 24 hour Refund/Exchange Policy we will do our best to assist you in repairing the cake however, there will be no refund and it may incur and additional charge. We do offer Delivery of all cakes. The delivery fee is based on the distance to the delivery location. Local deliveries here in the Atlanta area start at $2.99 and is based upon availability.

bestSweetPotatoes takes great pride in our Pies, cakes, etc..  Each cake and pie is packed for shipping the day it is baked to ensure freshness.

 

The pies, cakes, muffins, etc. are frozen for at least 48 hours prior to shipping in a shipper box.  

 

Your pies, cakes, muffins, etc. will be shipped weather permitting Tuesday – Thursday and require a 48 hour advance order.  Friday Shippers for a Saturday delivery require an additional $15 charge added at checkout!  Place Orders to multiple locations separately.  PLEASE INFORM THE RECIPIENT TO EXPECT SHIPMENT!  Delays resulting from inclement weather are not covered. Once a delivery has been attempted (a call tag left) delays resulting from setting up a second delivery attempt or pick-up are not covered.  We offer two options for delays resulting from the shipper. Please be mindful that if the bakery runs into issues baking your pies, cakes, muffins, etc. in time for delivery we may have to ship on the next available ship day.

1) Refund shipping charges if you wish to keep the pies, cakes, muffins, etc.

2) Pies, cakes, muffins, etc. reshipped if you wish to return the delayed cake but not necessary due to possible spoilage.

If the pies, cakes, muffins, etc. is damaged in shipping, we will gladly process a damage claim with the selected carrier.  Claims must be made within 5 days of receipt.  The shipping company may require that the damaged cake, box & all items included in package be picked up for inspection; so please do not discard the box, cake or any of its contents.  Damage & unsuccessful deliveries are not common – ONLY 1 – 1.5 % claims are processed per season from all of the cakes that we ship.  No refunds are given for incomplete or wrong addresses.  Packages left at the door – sometimes a shipper will leave the package at the door if they determine it is safe.  Apartments, Condos, Dormitories, Hotels, Hospitals – shipments are usually directed to a complex office or receiving department which may result in delays.  We recommend letting the recipient know they will be receiving a package so they can be on the look-out for it.  No refunds are given due to this delay.  No deliveries are accepted at Military Bases or P.O. Boxes. Deliveries to extended delivery areas are not guaranteed.  International deliveries are not recommended because of the distance of travel for a perishable item.   Credit card authorization and verification must be received prior to processing an order.  Shipments occur Tuesday through Thursday, excluding holidays for Next Day Air delivery unless otherwise noted.
