WHAT IS YOUR COVID-19 POLICY FOR WEDDINGS?
* With the current state of affairs, hopefully you are considering rescheduling your wedding. Couples that have chosen to reschedule with Liberty Bakery will be able to transfer their deposit to the new proposed date without penalty. However, clients needing to reschedule a second time may result in a fee. In order to move the date, we will simply move all aspects to the new desired date and send along a revised contract to lock everything in. With the majority of couples rescheduling dates at this time, availability may soon become limited. I would strongly suggest finding a new date for your big day sooner rather than later.
* With that being said, should your new rescheduled date fall on a day that we are fully committed, we are more than happy to extend a full refund of your deposit. We do sincerely hope that you apply that deposit to assist another small business owner who is in need at this time, such as ourselves 🙂
* With all aspects being so up in the air and changing daily, we fully understand the right of cancelling your wedding day entirely. Should this be the route that you wish to go down, we unfortunately are unable to extend the option of a refund of any payments or deposits.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A SPECIAL OCCASION CAKE AND A STANDARD CAKE?
All cakes are special! With that being said, we currently offer two ways to order delicious cakes depending on details of the design and flavors. Below is our breakdown of the difference:
Standard Cakes: A cake that does not require a different design than that on our website. These cakes have set flavors, and can be purchased directly from the SHOP. Each cake is iced in white buttercream and decorated in the traditional Liberty fashion with seasonal local florals. These cakes are not available for delivery, but we do offer contactless pick-up on Fridays & Saturdays between 10am & 1pm.
Specialty Cakes: Cakes that are decorated with the specific design requested by each client. An example would be a unicorn design, pig design, etc. Our full menu of offerings is open to this type of cake, and is not limited to the availability such as our online shop. These cakes are available for both delivery and pick up depending on the client’s preference. For specialty cakes, we require a minimum of 10 days advance notice.
WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?
All special occasion and standard cakes are paid for in full at the time the order is confirmed. Clients have the ability to cancel either cakes up to seven days before the order is to be picked up or delivered. After the seven day period, Liberty Baking Co. retains the right to keep payment(s) rendered. Please remember, we are a small local business person. Although we do not bake a week in advance, we do order all of our fresh products and ingredients based on our upcoming orders.
WHERE IS THE LIBERTY KITCHEN, AND WHAT IS A "COTTAGE KITCHEN"?
For now, the Liberty Baking Co. is located in a designated private lower level of Chef Alison Friedman’s home in Fairfax City, Virginia. A “Cottage Kitchen” is the classification of licenced and insured kitchen that is attached or within a person’s personal home. Our kitchen is operated under the guidance and inspection of the USDA. This means that Alison and Kim are also certified Professional Food Handlers and follow all Fairfax County health and sanitation codes. YAY! We are both uptight clean freaks!
CAN YOU WALK ME THROUGH A TYPICAL PICK UP AT LIBERTY BAKING CO.?
Customers will receive pick up information with each order’s confirmation. Liberty Baking Co. has its own side entrance. You will be asked to turn on to Collier Lane to the entrance. You will know you are there because of the giant tree swing. Customers will then be able to enjoy a contactless pick up by picking up their cake from the table outside the bakery door. If there is more than one cake one the table, each cake will have a large label with the customer’s name in bold to avoid zero contact with other clients’ items.
WHAT IF I AM RUNNING LATE FOR A PICK UP?
No worries. Life happens. Just give Alison a call or a text at 703.851.9680
WHERE DO YOU DELIVER SPECIALTY AND WEDDING CAKES TO?
We deliver all over the DMV. Pricing for delivery will vary on the time and distance from our kitchen in Fairfax and can range anywhere from $50.00 to $200.00.
