Ugh, and it's supposed to be in the 90s! I have a delivery refusal disclaimer I plan to have her sign. I was thinking of making up a fun flier of sorts with instructions on how to deliver a tiered buttercream cake. Silly pictures, very attention getting.
It's a small cake, just 2 tiers, but a rough delivery under the best circumstances. It's almost 60 miles on curvy, hilly roads in desert-like conditions that will take over an hour. (my charge to deliver would have been approximately $150, which is why the planner is picking it up)
My plan for the delivery was to center dowel, start out well-chilled, wrap the box in plastic and pack a couple of bags of ice around the box to help keep it cold. I will supply shelf-liner for her car but since they are refusing to pay for delivery, I shouldn't have to supply the ice, should I? I'm leaning towards considering that part of the service they are giving up by not paying for delivery.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on this.
