About

Life between sugar and colors!

I am Eleni , owner of Lena's Cakes.

I have a degree in Chemistry, and I am a part-time teacher in my morning job. But I loved baking all my life. And my kitchen is my passion!

2012 starts counting days, depression in Greece has started and I had to find something to keep my mind of miserable things. And that's when me and fondant have met!
~Fondant (or sugarpaste) is a sweet edible dough made from sugar and glucose.~

It was fun, it was colourful and it was creative.What more could I ask? I started playing with it, colouring it, googling about it, and finding new techniques and tips every single day.

I am inspired by anything for creating new designs. You have a new wallpaper in your house? Probably I'm imagining my next topper if I visit!

After making the first cookies, cupcakes and cakes with fondant for friends and family, I decided to share those big smiles I saw on everyone's face with more people.
I started with my FB page and April 2013 I've joined Etsy.

In my shop you can find fondant toppers for birthdays, baby showers, weddings or any occasion that you want to make special for someone.
I recently added a new line of edible lace decorations, to help you make a party even more romantic!
Here you can also find supplies - boxes, ribbons and candies - so you can make your own party favors.

My Etsy designs are just a guideline. I will be more than happy to create an item especially for you.
That's the beauty of a handcrafter's small shop! Nothing is massively produced and I can remember every single party I made favors for.
( e.g.I can not forget the pink dolphin cookies I made for a little girl,once! At that time I thought it was odd...after a couple of years of making red seahorses, blue shells and purple snowflakes, I know there is no limit to party colors!)

Thanks for visiting....
And remember....
"You are never too old to dream a new dream"!

Request a cancellation within: 6 hours of purchase
I don't accept returns or exchanges
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Returns and exchange details
Refunds will not be given due to shipping delays caused by incorrect shipping address, weather delays or other reasons caused by the shipping carrier.
Due to handmade/custom nature of items, unfortunately, no refunds, exchanges or returns…all sales are final.

I do package things very carefully. However, in the unlikely event that a topper is slightly broken or damaged during shipment, you can easily repair it yourself by using just a dab of water - will act like glue to repair the fondant. In the case of bigger damage a small repair kit is included to every order.
If necessary and there is enough time, I will ship out a replacement topper if the original topper is not repairable. Photo proof is necessary.

Read carefully the description of the item you are interesting before you buy it.
Note that color may vary a bit from display to display.

In addition, I'm not responsible for damaged caused as a result of the package being exposed to environmental elements upon delivery. I highly recommend someone is available to receive the package, especially during hot, humid months and periods of rain. Damage can occur to the toppers if the package is left outside unprotected. I recommend to remove toppers from shipping box immediately upon arrival and place on a flat surface away from heat and humidity to harden up.
After that fondant toppers should be placed in an airtight storage container away from direct light, heat and humidity. Do not refrigerate or freeze!

If you are not 100% happy with your purchase or service for any reason, please send me a message before leaving your feedback. I pay great attention to customer satisfaction.

----Please send me your email address through an Etsy conversation.
It'll only be used to communicate with you about your order----
Payment
I accept PayPal and credit card payments via Etsy Direct Checkout .
Shipping
--LEAD TIME REQUIREMENT--
My shop has a minimum of 3 weeks lead time requirement prior to your event date.
Once you submit your order and payment, I add your toppers to my scheduling calendar. You don’t have to worry about your toppers “going bad” because I actually make them 4-5 days before shipping them.
-Fondant & lace decorations need to be well dried before packaged and shipped.-
I generally time your order to be delivered the week of your event to maintain product freshness.
If payment is not received within 3 days the order will be canceled.

--Shipping Savings--
I combine shipping costs for multiple item purchases. I refund any shipping costs paid over the actual shipping cost to ship an order. If preferred, please contact me with the items you are interested in and I can quote shipping and set the order up as a special reserve order.

--Shipping methods--
All orders are shipped as Registered mail (signature required) using the Hellenic Postal Services and delivered by the recipient’s local Postal Services (USPS, Canada Post, Royal Mail,etc). 
A tracking number is available once an order is shipped and it will be provided.

--Shipping times--
Estimated Arrival Times :
• USA : 8-15 business days
• Europe : 3-10 business days
• Canada: 3-8 weeks
• Australia, New Zealand and Oceania : 8-15 business days
• Asia Pacific: 2-6 weeks
I’m doing my best to meet these shipping estimates, but cannot guarantee them. Actual delivery time will depend on each country’s Postal Services.

Some countries may charge customs fees. I cannot guarantee this information and buyers are responsible for paying their own customs fees.
Additional policies and FAQs
Product Information:
- Additional info about Covapaste fondant can be found here http://www.cakedecoratingsupplies.co.uk/covapaste-icing-white-5kg.html

Each item is Made-To-Order, so please allow slight artistic changes from the picture shown.
Hints & Tips:
** The moisture from the frosting tends to really soften the fondant toppers so I recommend applying the toppers immediately prior to your event. It is very rare but, in extreme humidity, the colors on the toppers can bleed if they are applied to the frosting too early.
**I recommend applying to soft frosting but, if your frosting has hardened, use a small dab of water on the back of the topper to attach it to the frosting.

CUSTOM ORDERS-- I'd love to create something especially for you. If you have something in mind please contact me and I will be happy to do your order.
Privacy
This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

Information I Collect
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
- as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
- when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
- if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
- as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest toimprove my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
- Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
- Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
- Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
- Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention
I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in other counties, outside the EU. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.
Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
- Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
- Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
- Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
- Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

Frequently asked questions
I need the toppers for a party next week. Is it possible?

I'm afraid not. I ship from Greece and there is no affordable express shipping method.

I received my toppers but I'm not using them right away. How do I store them till the party?

Just place them in an airtight container, away from heat, moisture and direct sunlight. Do not freeze or refrigerate. A handling instruction note is included to every order.
Apply to fresh frosting when ready.

I saw some cute toppers, but my party is 6 months away. When is the best time to place my order?

The sooner , the better. I book up really fast, especially during spring-summer dates. When you place an order, I add your toppers to my scheduling calendar and make them accordingly.
I generally time your order to be delivered the week of your event to maintain product freshness.

I like these toppers, but I want them in different color. Can you do that?

Of course! When placing your order , just add to "notes to seller" your desired color combo.
Even better, send me a photo sample of your colors and I'll try matching them as close as possible.
-Exception are edible lace decorations which are available only in colors shown.

Custom and personalized orders

I accept custom orders, so please don't hesitate to contact me. I'll be happy to make something just for you!

What's the toppers shelf life?

Fondant decorations are consumable for a period of 6 months after purchase and can be kept for years as keepsakes or for decorative purposes.

Do I get a tracking number with my order?

Yes. With your tracking number you can easily search for your package at your local post office.
Online tracking information is available only if your country's postal services provide that.

How do you package them?

Toppers are individually wrapped in food grade material and bubble wrapped with extreme care. Delicate and 3D designs are protected with extra cardboard.
However, in the unlikely event that a topper is slightly broken or damaged during shipment, you can easily repair it yourself by using just a dab of water - will act like glue to repair the fondant. In the case of bigger damage a small repair kit is included to every order.

Are they 100% edible?

Unless otherwise mentioned in the listing's description
(e.g. toothpicks or floral wires to give stability), fondant toppers are 100% edible.

What products do you use to make your edible decorations? Do they come in flavors?

I only use first quality fondant & gumpaste products (Covapaste, Renshaws or Culpitt). Colors are Sugarflair's or Rainbow Dusts.
Edible Lace is Claire Bowman's.
Fondant decorations have a light vanilla or strawberry taste. Brown colored ones have chocolate flavor.
