Ordering your cake

We do make every effort to meet all orders that we receive, however we are only able to make a finite number of cakes in any given week, and during the busy spring and summer months regrettably we may not be able to meet every request that we receive. We recommend that all orders are placed as early as is possible. The most common time period for orders to be placed is normally not less than 6 months before the wedding day especially in busy periods. You can use our save the date facility if you wish to be reminded that your date is becoming busy.

In the unlikely event that we have to cancel your order for any reason, then we will give you as much notice as possible, and discuss the matter with you and try to agree a suitable alternative. If you are not willing to accept our suggested alternative, then we will refund any monies paid to you.

Limitation of Liability: Except in respect of death or personal injury due to negligence for which no limit applies, our entire liability to you in respect of any claim whatsoever or breach of these Terms, whether or not arising out of negligence, shall be limited to the amount set out in the Order

In no event shall we become liable to you for any loss of business, loss of opportunity or loss of profits or for any other indirect or consequential loss or damage whatsoever. This shall apply even where such a loss was reasonably foreseeable or we had been made aware of the possibility of your incurring such a loss.

Paying for your cake

In order to secure a cake order we ask for a 20% non-refundable deposit. The balance is due no later than 21 days prior to the wedding date. For orders placed within one month of the wedding date, we do require full payment which is non-refundable. Please ask for details of our bank for direct transfers.

Changing your cake

Changes to your initial order can be made up to 6 weeks prior to your wedding cake being delivered, and should be made in writing, preferably via email. We will always acknowledge alterations sent to us by email. Where an alteration incurs a charge, you will be notified and the additional cost will be added to your final balance.

Cancelling your cake

If you wish to cancel your order more than 21 days prior to your delivery date, your deposit already paid is non-refundable. If you wish to cancel your order with less than 21 days before the delivery date, the full balance will be charged.
