FAQS, DISCLOSURES, AND CONTRACT
Please read through this page before you submit payment for your order.
By paying your invoice you are agreeing to these terms and conditions.
After a full year of COVID-19, I am updating my COVID terms.
I am fully vaccinated, and am happy to be one step closer to a hopeful "normal". The following measures are in place for the safety of my customers and my family:
-In the event that the state of Idaho moves to a shut down, or my children's school shuts down, I will temporarily close my doors until it is deemed safe to reopen by the state.
-I will continue to strive to be careful, and I will continue safe food handling practices that have always been implemented in my home. If I get sick, I will cancel your order and offer a full refund plus a discount on a future order.
-If you cancel a paid order due to COVID prior to your dough being mixed (usually the Monday before you pickup) discretion will be used to determine the availability of a refund. I would prefer to continue to make your cookies and have them be saved for a later date.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
CUSTOM ORDER DESIGNS AND PRICING
Custom orders start at $40/dozen for simple designs. Detailed designs start at $47/dozen. Elaborate designs start at $52/dozen. All cookies are priced based on design.
I do my best to create original work that has artistry and originality. For this reason I avoid copying exact designs of other cookie artists, and doing copyrighted character themes. If you send inspiration pictures, I ask that you also provide the original creator of the cookies so I can properly give credit if I post pictures.
If there is a change in the design originally discussed on your invoice, I will need 2 weeks notice, or a partial rush fee will be added to your order.
MINIMUM ORDER REQUIREMENTS
My minimum order is 1 dozen. I specialize in small batch orders and prefer to bake between 1-6 dozen per week.
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I SUBMIT AN ORDER REQUEST?
I take on limited orders every week, therefore I book out quickly. I AM CURRENTLY BOOKED THROUGH JULY 2021. Any order that I take on with less than 14 days notice will be charged a $10/dozen rush fee. Please check my schedule before submitting an order request.
HOW MANY DESIGNS? HOW MANY FLAVORS?
I specialize in creating “sets”. This means that I only create a few designs per dozen. The amount of designs will be determined during the ordering process.
I do my best to "draft" your set for you and send you the sketch of the set before your payment due date.
There is a 2 dozen minimum for specialty flavors besides vanilla bean.
A variety of designs and flavors in smaller orders are available at a surcharge.
DO YOU DELIVER? WHERE DO I PICKUP?
For custom orders I ask that you pick up your order at my home in West Boise. Currently, the only way I can accommodate multiple orders per week, is by having pickups exclusively on Fridays and Saturdays. If you have an order with me, the date we discuss will be your pickup date, and I will contact you 1-3 days before pickup to arrange a pickup time. ***Please make arrangements in your schedule to pick up your order for the date you request your order to be due. If you need a different pickup date than the one listed on your invoice, I cannot guarantee that I will have availability for your new date.*** If a meet up or delivery is requested a $20 fee will need to be paid before I can bring your order to you.
Please make note that I reside and work in Boise, ID. As of July 1, 2019 I will not be taking any new custom orders that need to be shipped for the foreseeable future. If you know someone in the Boise area that can pick up your order and ship it to you, I would be happy to coordinate pick up with them.
For ALL custom orders, payment is due one week before your pickup date. This is the only way I can guarantee that I am paid for my work. All payment is done through Square invoicing. I do not accept payment via Venmo, PayPal, or any other payment system besides Square invoicing.
All custom orders for November and December will require a $20 non-refundable deposit to hold your date.
For pre-orders, payment is due when ordering through my Square Store.
All cookies are made with a vanilla bean sugar cookie, and royal icing unless otherwise noted.
Ingredients: flour, sugar, butter, powdered sugar, meringue powder, water, eggs, salt, baking powder, vanilla extract, vanilla bean, vanilla emulsion
Extra ingredients that may apply to specialty flavors: dehydrated berries, dark cocoa powder, dehydrated lemon, lemon zest, apple cider packets, homemade pear butter, organic pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, peppermint candies
