?There is no specific allocation of marks to marking individual criteria. Your mark will reflect the overall quality of the written assignment taking into account all criteria. ?An initial point: you are not writing a memorandum to a partner in a law firm. Answer the question by reference to the facts you are given in the problem. Do not have a separate heading for ‘Further Action’ or the like. Rather, think of writing an advice to be given to a judge as to the potential liabilities of the parties in the question. You are not acting as an advocate so do not only put points in favour of one party’s case; you must reach a conclusion, but this should be based on an assessment of the relative strength of the plaintiff’s case.
Jenny White calls into Sweetpea on Wednesday 18 February and
looks over Clara’s portfolio of cakes. One of the cakes in the
portfolio ‘Mad is the Hatter cake’, a two-tier chocolate cake with
fondant icing. The price listed in the portfolio is $250 plus $50
delivery. Jenny says ‘It is for my husband’s birthday, which is on
Sunday 22 February. I know it is late, but I need to check out the
prices and selection from another shop before I make a final
decision. But I think the price is a little too high for me.’ Clara says, ‘I
have no other orders for Sunday at this stage, but you will need to
let me know as soon as possible. I will make and deliver it for $225.
But you will need to let me know by 12 noon this Thursday whether
you want to go ahead.’ On Wednesday evening Jenny posts a letter
to Clara that says ‘I accept your offer to make and deliver the ‘Mad
Hatter Cake’ for $225 to be delivered on Sunday 22 February 2009.’
The letter also encloses a cheque for the full amount. On Thursday
morning Clara gets two additional orders from other clients for
cakes, also to be delivered on Sunday, and at 10 am Clara rings
Jenny and says ‘Sorry, I have taken other orders and I just can’t do
your cake. Jenny’s letter is received at 11 am. Jenny is furious.

• Is there a contract between Clara and Jenny?
• Intention to Create Legal Relations
• Issue – is Clara’s portfolio of cakes an offer?
• Rule – To be an offer, a proposal must evince
an intention by the y offeror to be legally bound
immediately on acceptance.
• Analysis – Usually a menu or catalogue is
taken as an invitation to treat because the
party is unlikely to want to be bound to
everyone who comes into the shop and asks
for a cake.
• Conclusion – the offeror does not evince an
intention to be bound immediately on
