I never give negative feedback but unfortunately I have to on this one :/ the seller had great communication at first...and then...nothing. It took over 2 months to receive this and I believe I only received it after I opened a case against her. The colors were dingy and didn't match the colors I wanted at all. It smelled of paint when it arrived and honestly just wasn't worth the amount I paid :( never again. Sorry!

Very satisfied with the rosette cake I purchased. It took a long while to receive my items but Larin made up for the lengthly time and I'm very satisfied with all of my items received.

The cake is perfect and so deceivingly realistic. It photographed really well for my daughters "no mess" cake smash.

Cupcake and cake making in the fake, have become my hobby turned business. I love designing and creating them all.
Cute combos of frosting, wrappers, with toppings make me happy.
I love all of your custom orders too. I love turning customers ideas and pictures into little pieces of art.
Picture ideas are great, details help me so much in determining the right cupcake or cake to fit perfectly into your plans for the perfect photo prop, birthday or wedding decor, or just for your empty cake plate.

I accept paypal. I find it to be super simple and very universal. If you are unable to do a paypal purchase it may delay your order while I wait for your payment but I am willing to accept money orders. I will always wait for payments before beginning a project.
Typically I use priority mail for my shipping method. Priority mail uses less conveyor belts and less stacking during the shipping process.
For me this means better peace of mind while I mail you your packages and for you it means less opportunity for broken items.
I may charge a little more than a basic shipping cost for special packaging and handling depending how fragile the item is.
Shipping insurance is an awesome option we should utilize. You never know what mail handlers do with our mail. : /
If you live in another country and would like to purchase my items just inbox me and I will look into the price for shipping my items to where you live.
I DO use recycled materials in the shipping process. No need to buy new boxes and new packing materials when the world is already full of them. I do try and use only clean boxes and I always wrap the purchased item in new and clean materials.
The fake cupcakery is not responsible for items damaged during shipping.
Refunds and Exchanges
I do not offer refunds for items. If you are unhappy with your item feel free to message me so I can work my hardest to make you satisfied with your purchases. I love love love to hear from my customers. Every note back about happy satisfied customers helps me with my shop and what I offer. I love my feedback and I cherish each one. Please let me help you so that I can earn those positive notes and feedback.
Additional policies and FAQs
I love to make people excited about their purchases. Every item is hand made and I inspect each item before shipping to make sure it will be worthy of great feedback.
Some custom orders do take a while to create. The process is very time consuming. Especially the cakes. The dry time varies greatly with each custom order. Sometimes even the weather can effect how long it takes a product to dry.
I do try and tell customers upfront how long a product may take. But it does vary depending upon each item.
There is a prepping period maybe two prepping periods, and then dry time.
I do offer wholesale discounts upon request. My prices are already very low in comparison to other shops on etsy. Please know I take pride in having lower prices.
My home is my cupcakery. Items purchased in my shop come from a smoke free, pet free home.
