Payments must be paid in full by bank transfer at the time of booking, which is non-transferable and non-refundable. Your oder will be confirmed on receipt of payment .  No guarantees can be given on availability until the payment has been received.


Do you cater for special dietary requirements?

All cakes are baked to order from our family kitchen, which has been registered with the local authority Environmental Health agency and awarded a food hygiene rating of 5.  As I don't have a designated kitchen for allergen free baking I regret I am unable to guarantee my cakes are free from specific allergens.


What if I am allergic to certain products?

Please be aware that whilst your chosen cake may not be made with ingredients containing specific allergens, it is prepared in a kitchen where other allergens may be present. A full list of ingredients and allergens for each product is available upon request.  Please also note raw materials used may have been produced in a factory where other allergens are present.
