Beautiful pearls, shipped with plenty of time before event. Happy with experience.
Edible passion and creativity
Two Sweet Cakes was destined to come to life at some point in my life. I've always had a strong creative side. I love Art, DIY projects, etc. I am always creating things. Glass, clay, pencil, paint, flowers, gourds,concrete, you name it...I've most likely tried it. So it probably never surprised my family when I felt in love with fondant.
My first batch of pearls was created for my cousins wedding cake many years ago. She gave my mom and I free reign over her cake and I thought pearls would be so glamorous and unique. And since we were also cutting the cake I knew I didn't want any hard plastic stuff on the cake. I wanted family to devour the cake, decorations and all.
I've lost count how many pearls I've made...easily a million I bet.. I consider myself one of the original few that began selling edible pearls here on Etsy. When I opened my shop there may have been one other person selling edible pearls, now there are quite a few. To this day I continue to make all the pearls myself. It's a tedious process of cutting, drying, coloring, more drying, packaging, and then shipping.
♦ Due to demand all orders are now taking about 10 business days (M-F) to complete. All items are handmade and therefore require a certain amount of time to create. Orders are prioritized based upon the date of purchase, order size, and the date needed. I ask that all customers enter the date that their items are needed. This ensures that you receive your items on time. If a date is not entered or not sent to me via convo your over will be completed as it fits in the production schedule. This means it may take longer than 10 days.
♦ RUSH ORDERS are no longer accepted. No exceptions. Any order that is needed prior to the 7-10 day lead time will be canceled and a refund issued. Thank you for your understanding.
♦ CUSTOM ORDERS - Payment for a custom order is expected within 3 days of the listing unless other arrangements are agreed upon in advance. After 3 days the listing will be canceled.
In fairness to other customers that have placed orders (and my sanity) I do not start an order until payment is received. This means that if I list a custom order and the customer needs it by "X" date and the customer pays for it a few days prior to that dater....the order will likely be canceled as I do not have the flexibility to expedite the order.
♦ All fondant pearls are sold in quantities of 100 pearls per size/per color. I am no longer offering smaller amount or mixing the sizes or colors unless provided within an existing listing. Thank you for your understanding.
♦ INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: I can ship internationally. Please contact me for a shipping quote. Items shipped USPS first class may take 3-4 weeks for delivery. Priority may take 12+ days. Customs in the US or within the destination country can impact delivery times greatly and I do not have any control over this. Any country specific surchages or import fees are the responsibility of the buyer.
Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
♦ RUSH ORDERS or orders needed within 7-10 days are no longer accepted. No exceptions. Any order that is needed prior to the 7-10 day lead time will be canceled and a refund issued. Thank you for your understanding
♦ Flat Rate or regional rate options are available for USPS priority mail. It you are purchasing multiple items and would like to use the flat rate options pleae convo me and I will setup a custom listing for you. Nobody wants to pay more for shipping if they dont have to.
♦ I do ship to limited international locations upon request. International orders require additional lead-time due to customs. I cannot be responsible for missed deliveries, slow deliveries, or packages which are delayed by customs. Duties associated with international orders are the responsibility of the buyer.
Please make sure that your address is correct in ETSY. I use stamps.com or Etsy shipping labels and the address information used is what is listed within your Etsy order. On occasion I will ship out of Paypal too so please review the "ship to" address to confirm it is correct.
I am not responsible if I am given the wrong address, or once package is confirmed delivered by the carrier to the address provided within the Etsy order Insurance is optional and can be added upon request.
Refunds and Exchanges
♦ Should the need to cancel an order occur I will consider each case on an individual basis. Normally all orders begin once payment has been received so depending upon the stage of completion a partial to no refund may be given
Refunds are only provided on items damaged during shipment and photos of the packaging and damaged items are provided within 24 hours of receiving the package. Orders that have a confirmed delivery with the carrier will not be refunded.
♦ Items are not returnable or exchangeable. Most of my items are food and thus I cannot accept them back. However, I do want happy customers and I encourage communication if an issue should arise. Please do not leave negative Feedback without attempting to resolve the issue with me first.
♦ I don't assume responsibility for international parcels once they have arrived safely in their appointed destination. This applies to international customs, missing parcels, and untimely deliveries.
♦ Once your order arrives please open the package to make sure everything arrived properly. I try to package all items as securely as possible but certain cupcake toppers styles are fragile..
Additional policies and FAQs
♦ I offer custom edible pearl packages based upon the colors and sizes of your choice, however there an additional $1.00 charge per color with custom colored packages. Please note that this may also delay your purchase if I do not have the color(s) in stock and I would need to order it in.
♦ EVENT DATE: An event date is required on all orders. Please include the date that you would like your items delivered by. This cannot be stressed enough as there are weeks that I am very, very, busy with large wholesale orders. Every order no matter the size is equally important to me so I want to make sure that details are not overlooked and you receive your items as expected. If a date is not entered during the checkout process I will fill your order within 7-10 days. Large orders may require 10-14 or more day lead-times.
♦If you have a custom item in mind please feel free to convo me.
