Alterations

If you require a change to your order you must make your request no later than 2 weeks before the delivery/collection date for celebration cakes. Alterations to wedding cakes must be requested no later than one month before the date for the agreed collection or delivery. We cannot guarantee that we can make the change to ingredients or supplies already ordered, but we will do our best to offer the alterations where possible. There may be an additional charge for changes, such as additional ingredients, decorations, time etc. Any changes made after this time will be subject to an order adjustment fee of £15.

 

Late Notice Orders

If your have made your order within 1-2 weeks of the date it is due and we are able to fulfil it, there will be a rush order fee of £15 applied to your total balance. We always make sure that orders that have been made well in advance and everything is in stock for those orders. However a late order may cause us to source ingredients/equipment needed to complete your order at an increased cost to us. Please note that by paying your deposit/full balance for a late notice order, you are agreeing that you accept that some/all decorations may not be set as firmly as we normally recommend, to maintain the desired effect. We make some decorations weeks (sometimes months) in advance to ensure stability of the product. With late notice orders, there is in some instances, insufficient ‘drying’ time. We will always do our best to fulfil the order to your satisfaction within the time frame.

 

Cancellations

If you need to cancel your order, please let us know as soon as possible. If you would like to replace the order at a later date, it might be possible for you to reuse the original deposit depending on how close to the date that you cancelled and if the date if available. Cancellations must made at least 3 weeks prior to the event date. However, if you do not give sufficient notice of cancellation, you will lose any additional payments made. If the wedding cake final payment is not paid by the agreed date and if no contact has been made by the client, we will not proceed with your cake and you will lose your deposit.

 

Collection

Collection is always welcomed, but we require an agreed date and time slot, as we cannot confirm our availability outside the time agreed. Once the cake has left the premises, it then becomes your responsibility. It is then up to you to store it correctly, following our guidelines and to ensure the cake is unharmed and in the expected condition. We cannot be held responsible for any damages caused after you leave our premises. We make every effort to offer your order as fresh as possible, to ensure your satisfaction. However, if you are late for arranged pick up time or choose to store your product for use beyond our recommended date, we will not be held responsible for any defects, including but not limited to, alterations of freshness, flavour or structure/integrity of the product.

 

 

Delivery

Delivery is charged at 50p per mile round trip. The mileage is calculated on Google Maps using your postcode and ours MK42 7DW. Once your product has been delivered and set up (if necessary), it is then your responsibility and we are no longer liable for any damages that may occur.

 

Equipment Deposits

If you require a particular stand to use with your order, we will require a deposit that will be returned, once the equipment has been safely returned to us. The amount will be dependant on the equipment chosen as they do differ in value. We require all equipment hired to be returned as soon as possible but no later than 5 days after the event, unless otherwise agreed beforehand. If it is not returned within that time, or it is damaged in any way, the deposit will not be returned. If we have to collect the equipment, a mileage of 50p for the round trip will be charged.
