Allergy Information & Disclaimer

All of our menu items are prepared, baked, decorated, and packaged in a designated and sanitized area. However, they are made on shared equipment and some items may contain or come into contact with: Milk, Eggs, Tree Nuts (e.g., almonds, walnuts, pecans), Peanuts, Wheat and/or Soybeans. 

Care & Handling

Custom buttercream cakes and cupcakes require refrigeration up until 1-2 hours before serving. Let cake/cupcakes come to room temperature 1-2 hours before serving for best flavor, texture, and quality. Custom decorated cookies must be left at room temperature and stored in a cool, dry place for best flavor, texture, and quality. Room temperature is considered 68 degrees to 77 degrees Fahrenheit. If customer/proxy chooses order pickup, they are responsible for providing proper transportation of product(s) and/or proper set up and environment to ensure quality. Customer/proxy assumes all liability and responsibility for the condition of the order once it is "accepted" and out of the possession of The Oven Life. If external elements (e.g., flowers, cake toppers, etc.) are placed on custom cakes after it has been "accepted", The Oven Life does not assume any responsibility to damages incurred by these external elements. Plant safety is the responsibility of the florist or individual placing flowers not purchased through The Oven Life on custom cakes. For tiered custom cakes, dowels are placed on all tiers to provide support and to prevent damage/collapse during transportation and set up. Dowels used can be in the form of wooden supports or large straw supports. Face smashing and/or biting into tiered cakes without proper slicing or dowel removal first may present a safety concern and is not recommended for any custom tiered cakes.
