Frequently Asked Questions
What are you hours?
Sweet Gourmet is available for meetings by appointment only. Emails and phone calls are returned during business hours (Monday - Saturday 9:00am - 5:00pm). We make every attempt to return phone calls and emails promptly, someone will follow up by the next business day.
Can we visit your store?
Sweet Gourmet does not currently have a retail store. All pickups are by appointment only at our location inside The Cucina, Princeton North Shopping Center, 1225 State Road, Princeton, NJ 08540.
What is the payment policy?
Orders of $100 or less must be paid in full 3 days prior to pick up. Orders of $101 plus must give a 50% non refundable deposit at the time of order and the balance must be paid 3 days prior to pick up. Failure to make the final payment may delay the completion of your order.
Why is the deposit non-refundable?
Custom cakes require quite a bit of planning and design in the days/weeks leading up to the day of your event. The deposit covers the cost of designing, planning, preparations and shopping.
Why must orders be paid in full 3 days prior to delivery?
All of our desserts are made to order. That means we bake everything especially for you and it will not be sold or used for any other client.
How do I pick up my order?
Orders will be picked up at The Cucina, our commercial kitchen. An appointment time will be set at the time of the order confirmation. If you have a delay on the day of pick up please contact us at 732-567-2858 as soon as possible.
