Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We recently ordered a 12 inch square cake online, i've given 2 stars as the cake tasted good and was made in time so I'll give you that... However our important instructions for the cake were ignored leaving us very disappointed on the day of...our toddlers 1st birthday party with no time to do anything to fix the problem. When placing the order we asked for no little star sprinkles on the cake due to being small, spiky hard choking hazards for the young crowd at the party... this request was unfortunately ignored. We also asked for bigger star decorations on the cake (easier to remove) to be in 2 specific colours to match the parties theme and this request was also ignored. We ordered well before their 4 day notice period so they had plenty of time to call us if our requests weren't do-able but they didn't. The contact information on the order confirmation was a reply to email address so I sent an email on Sunday morning, it's now Thursday and I still haven't heard back. I've done the right thing reaching out to them first before reviewing on here but as it now looks like I'm being ghosted, I'm here speaking out. WARNING - If you order online and have specific requirements, don't rely on them to read your message even if it includes the words "choking hazards" & "children". Imagine if it was a note about a serious dietary requirement? Now there's a scary thought... Sorry "Divine" Cakes we won't be back due the disappointment caused on a special day, the neglectful care taken to follow clear important instructions and the lack of accountability to own up and repond in a stand business timely manner.More

I needed a cake in a hurry. I was a tourist in CHCH. The counter service was good. Helpful. The cake I bought was a chocolate mud cake with Happy Birthday already written on it , which helped me greatly. It was also decorated nicely.... The price of the cake , for the size , was a little high - as it was small - but it was classier than the supermarket ones. On eating , everyone was happy with the taste. If you want something a little more stylish , you will always need to pay more.More

Stopped in here to buy a cake for my partner for his birthday. After checking out their options and the preferences of everyone who will be eating the cake, we went with the Chocolate mud cake. After dinner, we served the cake on the board...(out of the box) it was given to us on. PROS: Location convenience CONS: 1. Poorly iced - icing didn't go all the way down to the bottom of the cake 2. The cake itself was very very dry. There was no way this cake was made today. You needed to have a drink after every bite. Completely disappointed with this purchase. Will not be purchasing again when there are many other options available. A supermarket mud cake would have been moister than this cake. So very disappointed. :(More

Ended up getting a bespoke cake made for my girlfriend for my birthday. The cake itself wasn't particularly amazing but it was fantastically priced (so that more than made up for it). The whole process of buying was made as easy as possible, the website...was incredibly easy to use and had excellent customisation options available. Overall, very happy with the service and will be coming back in future.More

Through grab one, there was a deal for a slice of cake and a coffee for $9. Boy, was it brilliant. The best Madeira cake which I have ever had. The lemon was punchy and tarty without being over the top. The cream filling was...rich and devine! The coffee? Can’t remember. The cake was the star of the show!More

If you have never tried a Cronut (cross between a Croissant & a donut with a surprise filling) get in quick before they sell out. Oh and they also sell wonderful cakes, & cheesecakes, & other delicious items.

My bought a baileys cheese cake yesterday and as it has alcohol in it I went back to the shop today and explained to them that there is liqueur( alcohol ) in it and my children cannot have it so I need to swap it...for something else.The server told me that she cannot do it as they have a 24 hours return policy.It means if you buy a cake from them and take it home and bring it back next day they cannot exchange it or refund or credit it.i asked the server that I wanted to speak to the manager and she connected me to a lady who told me they cannot exchange the product and basically I have to pay full amount if I wanted a different cake.They have nowhere displayed the refund policy of their business instore or online.People make honest mistakes and if you know it then certain adjustments and flexibility is required as they say Customer is always right. The server and the manager were very less accomodating and had a negative attitude about them as they were not listening to the customer.i have been a reqular customer of divine since last 11 years but now I think it's time for a change.problem should have been looked into and resolved which finally did happen I was asked to pay the difference and given another product.You guys made my day by ruining it.i would have put the cake in the bin if not for my wife and kids as they wanted to make my day a special one.Moral do the story....Bake your own cake at home. Divine has been exceptional brand so far but this incident has soured things up.They need to display their policies and procedures.listen to customer's as happy customers tell 10 people unhappy ones tell everyone.More
