Other celebration cakes can be collected from our location in Farsley, Leeds. However we cannot be held liable for any damage to the cake once it has left our possession. To ensure the cake is as fresh as possible, we recommend the cake is collected no earlier than the day before the event.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Booking is advisable as early as possible to ensure your date is secured, particularly during the busy wedding season. Most of our cakes are sponge and therefore cannot be baked more than a couple of days in advance to ensure they are fresh. We ask for a minimum of 3 months notice for wedding cakes and 1 month for celebration cakes but depending on our schedule and the design of your cake we may be able to accomodate shorter notice so please contact us.
All prices are non-negotiable and priced according the design and specification of your particular cake. If you have a particular budget to stick to then we may be able to alter some designs to accomodate this. Following your consultation/booking your quote is valid for 1 month, paying your deposit (see below) secures this price and prevents any further price increases, except in exceptional circumstances beyond our control eg exceptional fuel price increases.
If you decide on fresh flowers on your cake then these will not be included in the price but we can work with your florist to match most flowers you may be using on the day.
For wedding cakes we ask for £100 which is refundable within 7 days of your booking should you change your mind.

We know that your cakes are very personal to you and your ideas may change but please be aware that if you change your design this may have an effect on the price of your cake. Payment of your deposit confirms your quote and all the details therein.

If the alteration affects the cost then your balance will be adjusted accordingly. Please warn us when you pay your deposit if you are unsure of the design.
