5 Disclaimer Forms for Your Cake Bakery

Cake Bakery Disclaimer Form

There are five disclaimer forms that I recommend using when selling cakes through your bakery or home-baking business. Use them only when applicable. They work in tandem with the basic cake contract template, which includes a general disclaimer outlining your cake ordering, cancellation, and refund policies. These five issue-specific disclaimers will arm you against the most common problems and refund scams that occur with large cake orders. They also establish clear and fair policies to help protect your bakery business from liability related to circumstances that fall outside of your control.

Keep your templates on file and use them when appropriate, requesting the customer’s signature and providing them with their own copy for reference.

Most Needed Cake Disclamer Forms

Cake Pickup Disclaimer

Contains cake pickup guidelines and waives your bakery of liability when cakes are transported and set up by the customer. Includes instructions for the customer on how to properly prepare their vehicle for a custom wedding or specialty cake pickup.

Outdoor Cake Display Disclaimer

Guides the customer on how to plan and execute the outdoor display of their custom wedding or specialty cake. Waives your bakery of liability around potential outdoor issues that could adversely affect the cake such as poor weather, un-level ground, or debris/insects.

Custom Cake Flavor or Special Request Disclaimer

When a wedding or specialty cake customer insists on having a specific cake flavor, filling, or finish that is not offered on your regular dessert menu, this form waives your bakery of liability for problems that occur as a result of the change. Since custom flavors or recipes fall outside of the recommended options, you cannot guarantee a quality product. This form protects you from disputes that may come from the type of strong-willed and often difficult customers that make this sort of request.

Dark Cake Colors Disclaimer

For cake orders that involve dark reds, blues, or black colors, which can stain teeth and clothing or affect the cake’s flavor, be sure to use this form. Requests like this may come from customers who want to match their cake’s finish to a particular school color or sports team color that is bold and requires an awful lot of food coloring (such as navy blue). This disclaimer also protects you from liability related to the accuracy of colors like purple, which are harder to achieve with natural buttercreams.

Allergen Disclaimer

When a customer requests the omission of a specific allergen that you normally use in your kitchen or commercial bakery like wheat or peanuts, trace elements may come in contact with the cake. This form clearly states that customers with food allergies proceed at their own risk when hiring a bakery that does not specialize in allergen-free cakes. The idea is to protect your business from liability in the event that someone experiences symptoms related to an allergy. This is one of the more common cake refund scams so beware.

5 Disclaimer Forms for Your Cake Bakery — 13 Comments

  1. Hello: I just purchased your book…watched your video and loved it…I was however wondering..after reading some of the comments that you had disclaimers available at one point for free…Did you ever offer the 5 disclaimers for a price separate from the sales kit?…Thank you, Have a Fabulous & Blessed Day!

  2. Hi, I was wondering if it’s possible to just purchase the 5 disclaimer forms you’ve generated? I’m interested in the verbage you used, but I already have other documents for cake orders and contracts. I’m trying to create some disclaimers as well. How much would you charge for just the 5 disclaimer forms? Thanks
