ABOUT OUR CAKES/ CAKE ORDER
QWhy do members get 20% online whole cake orders but not for walk-in cake purchase?+
Our cakes, in particular the Watermelon Strawberry Cake, are very popular. It is difficult to guarantee sufficient supply for walk-in customers.
We hope that customers can purchase the sizes and flavours they want, hence we recommend them to do online pre-orders. The online system is a hassle-free platform for customers and by offering 20% off, we are encouraging members to do their purchase this way.
QWhy don’t LIFETASTIC provide disposable cake knives?+
Most of our cakes, in particular the Watermelon Strawberry Cake, have thick fruit layers. Common disposable cake knives are made with plastic and not sharp enough for slicing through the fruit layers, hence we recommend customers to use fruit knives at home or in restaurants instead.
This is also to promote environmental protection. If customers is really in need of a disposable cake knife, we can offer one at HK$20 as a last resort. All the charges, deducting the cost, will be donated to environmental organizations.
