Please note that we are not able to offer any refunds without proof of evidence.
If the product is faulty or misdescribed we will either correct the mistake or provide a replacement prior to your event. If this is not possible we will offer some or all of your money back subject to our investigation from the proof of evidence. Please state your order number in all correspondence.
Upon cake collection or delivery, customers will be asked to inspect their product and must sign to confirm they are happy with their order e.g. size, design, wording, condition and quality. Any issues must be communicated, as above, within 24 hours from receipt with images as supporting evidence.
By agreeing to our Terms & Conditions, you will take all appropriate action to follow our cake handling, storage and serving guidelines.
