The images on the website are examples of our cakes. All our products are hand made and can be ordered in different sizes and design from those shown on the website.
We cannot guarantee an exact replica of any cake but we will do our best to make it so. Where colour swatches are provided we will do our best to match as close as we deem possible. Exact colour matches are not guaranteed.
Fresh flowers are not included in the price of any cake design unless otherwise stated. If a cake is to be dressed with fresh flowers these are to be provided by your florist.
Please note some flowers are not suitable for use as a cake decoration. Ask your florist for details regarding toxicity. We cannot be liable for any contamination to our food product that may arise from their misuse. We recommend that your florist liaise directly with us to confirm detail about the size of cakes to avoid any miscommunication.
If you have any queries or need to make any changes to an order please contact us immediately. Alterations and amendments must be submitted in writing. We will assess the request for an alteration, and endeavour to make alteration where possible dependant on the design and amount of notice given. We will let you know its effect on the price and any agreed timetable. Accepting any alterations is at the discretion of the Seller. It is the Buyer’s responsibility to check any quotes and invoices thoroughly before making payment. We reserve the right to change the design at any point if circumstances beyond our control compromise the quality of the finished product. e.g. weather conditions. The Buyer will be notified of any such changes and we will endeavour to keep any changes minimal.
Delivery and collection
We cannot be held liable for any damaged to the cake or products we have delivered once we have delivered or delivered and set up the cake at a venue or location. We will require a signature for the safe receipt of the goods on our cake information sheet.
If the cake or prodycts are collected from us, we cannot be held liable for any damaged to the cake or products once they have left our premises. The responsibility lies with the buyer. Cakes and products are very fragile and we advise driving solely and carefully.
Delivery times are approximate. We will always endeavour to deliver the cake to you as close as possible to the given delivery time but we’re unable to take liability for any delays out of our control.
Storage and display of cakes
Cakes and goods should be stored in the box provided in a cool dry place, out of direct sunlight. When cakes and goods are delivered and set up – if they are placed outside they are likely to react to the temperature. In hot or humid weather there is a possibility of sugar decorations melting or damage to good. Cakes are best eaten on the day of delivery. Once cakes have been cut shelf life will be reduced.
Damages and complaints
In the unlikely event that your order arrives damaged, it is the customer’s responsibility to report the damage as soon as possible and no later than 24 hours. The customer must send photographic evidence and if possible a sample piece of the cake.
The seller accepts no liability for cakes and products that are damaged after they have been collected or delivered to the agreed location.
If the customer is unhappy we would recommend getting in touch straight away, as some issues may be able to rectified straight away. However, once the cake information sheet is signed this confirms that the customer is happy with the decoration of the cake.
If the complaint is in regard to the quality of the cake, then the cake and the remainder of the cake must be returned to us as soon as possible after cutting and within 48 hours of collection / delivery to ensure that we are able to fairly access the nature of the complaint.
By paying any monies you agree to the full terms and conditions outlined in this document. Please ensure that you read through it to familiarise yourself with the terms.
