Terms and Conditions
It is the responsibility of the named person on the booking to understand, agree, and accept responsibility for all booking conditions, including all payments due by specified dates. By ordering with me and paying a deposit, you accept that you are entering into a contract and you agree to be bound by these conditions.
1. Deposits and Payments
1.1. A non-refundable 50% deposit is required before your order and date can be considered confirmed. This will be deducted from the final balance.
1.2. The Final and remaining balance is due two weeks prior to the arranged collection/delivery date.
1.3. The above payment schedule does not apply to Wedding orders. Please revert to clause 5.4.
1.4. Failure to pay by the due date may result in the order being cancelled.
1.5. If your order is accepted less than two weeks in advance, full payment is required to secure the booking.
2. Delivery charge
2.1. Deliveries must be arranged during the initial enquiry. If you would like to amend your order once confirmed to a delivery, additional charges may be added to your final balance. Please notify me as soon as possible if this is the case.
2.2. All deliveries within a 5 mile radius of Gloucester are complimentary. Mileage thereafter is charged at 45p per mile. Please inform me of the postal code as soon as possible so that I can provide a quote for additional charges. Please note, this does not apply to Wedding orders, please refer to 5.4.3.
2.3. All tiered cakes are delivery only unless otherwise agreed and charges will be included and detailed in your bespoke quote.
2.4. I reserve the right to increase the charge per mile should fuel costs increase drastically.

3.4. Should payments not be received by the due date, I may need to proceed with legal action to recover losses and to protect the business.
4. If I cancel or change the booking
4.1. In the unlikely event I am unable to complete the order, due to illness or unforeseen circumstances all efforts will be made to find an alternative cake designer to fulfil your order.
4.2. Where delivery has been agreed and in the event of extreme weather conditions, we will need to discuss safe options and/or cancellation. Should the later be the case, full refunds will be given.

5.2. Cake stands are available to hire and a deposit will be required. This will be refunded once the stand has been returned.
5.2.1. In the event the stand has been damaged whilst in your care the deposit will not be refunded.
5.3. All orders must be placed a minimum of 3 months prior to allow enough time for the design and tasting.
5.4. As each cake is different I am unable to confirm the final price until we have discussed your design in detail. Any price I provide before this will be estimated and subject to change.
5.4.1. In order to confirm your date a £100 non refundable deposit is required, this will be deducted from the final balance. Once we have finalised your chosen design after a consultation/tasting session, I will then confirm the final cost to you in writing.

5.4.3. Delivery will be included in your overall cost. Please confirm the venue upon enquiry.

6.2. Please state on your initial enquiry request if you require vegan, dairy or gluten free cakes.
