Terms and Conditions
As we use nuts, dairy, soya and gluten in our kitchen we cannot guarantee that our cakes will be free of these ingredients. Therefore we do not currently offer Dairy/gluten/soya/nut free cakes.
Cakes with fresh flowers / inedible items
If you choose to have fresh flowers on your cake please arrange this with your florist. Some flowers are not safe to use on cakes so you must check the flowers that you wish to have are suitable.
We use inedible items in/on/around our cakes such as ribbon, wires ad dowels. We will notify you if your cake has any inedible items. Details are provided with the cake upon delivery/collection. After delivery/collection it is no longer our responsibility to make sure these items are removed prior to cutting.
Wedding cakes with more than two tiers must be delivered to the venue by us.
Your order may be collected at a pre arranged time.
A signature is required upon collection confirming that you have received your order in good condition and as specified.

Once we have set up your cake then it is not to be moved or altered in any way. It is no longer our responsibility once we have set up the cake.
We cannot be held responsible for any occurrences after set up that may affect the stability or structure/ appearance of the cake.
It is important to choose an area where the cake will not get too warm or be in direct sunlight. A covered table should be ready upon our arrival to set up your cake. We will not be held responsible for any problems that may occur due to the stability/level of the table/surface that the cake is displayed on.
It is you, the customer who is responsible for making sure that delivery and set up of the cake is possible at the agreed time.
We like to have 1.5 hours time to set up dependent on the cake design. Set up time may alter.
They should be placed in this environment as close to guest arrival as possible as they are more likely to be affected by the weather if it is a warm day. Naked wedding cakes will dry out faster in an outside environment.
