Hi,

I was wondering if you all use a delivery sign off form for when you deliver your cakes and if so, would you be willing to share. TIA icon_biggrin.gif

This is the one I use. I always ask the client to make sure that if she's not there, she has authorized someone to sign this.

I have inspected the _________________________ cake and certify that it is finished and in stable condition.

Cake Diane assumes no responsibility for damage to the cake after it is set up at the destination.

I think it's a really good idea to have a delivery signoff for the wedding cakes you drop off!

I also think it's a good idea to have them sign a form saying that they picked it up at the shop in good condition and you aren't responsible for what happens to it. (For b-day cakes and stuff like that).

I have EVERY customer, wedding or not, sign (the order form) for their cake. They also get a copy (unsigned w/ my initial) of the order form. The form lists the details of the cake, etc... so I know they are getting what they asked for.

DianeLM~ I think what you have writen is perfect. May I borrow from that a bit, please?

Thank you for the response, I just wanted to cover myself. This would go along with the picture that I took at the venue to ensure that it was there and set up without incident.

I don't have one because that means I have to hang around and wait for someone to come sign off on the cake.

I DO have the above verbage in my contract and I also take a photo of the cake when I am done setting it up. If anything happens once I leave, I'm not responsible. I know how to correctly set up a cake and know what type of supports use, so if the cake falls or is damaged....it's because someone else messed it up.

I always touch base with the venue person before the event to finalize such details as where to park, which door to use, who to give disassembly/cutting instructions to, and who is going to BE THERE to sign the sign-off form.

I've never delivered a cake without someone in a position of authority present. I guess I've just been lucky!

I just collect a signature on the already signed bridal contract...I just ask whoever to sign that they saw the cake in good condition.
