We require a 50% non-refundable deposit to confirm your order. The remaining 50% is due 2 weeks before the delivery date, at which point all changes must be confirmed (changes to the previously agreed design may incur extra fees). Orders placed less than 2 weeks in advance of the delivery date must be paid in full.
As all of our cakes are home-baked, and we devote a lot of time to ensuring that each is perfect, we are only able to take on a certain amount of orders per week and get booked up quickly. It is therefore advisable that you book your cake well in advance. Orders are only confirmed once we have received a deposit or full payment. We accept payment by card or bank transfer.
