  5. Acceptance of orders: Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us.
  6. If we cannot accept your order: If we are unable to accept your order for whatever reasons, we will inform you of this and will not charge you for the product. This might be but not restricted to because the product is out of stock, because of unexpected limits on our resources which we could not reasonably plan for, because a credit reference we have obtained for you does not meet our minimum requirements, because we have identified an error in the price or description of the product or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
  7. Your order number: Once an order is placed online via our website or at the store, we will assign an order reference number to your order and tell you what it is when we accept your order. You will need to quote your order reference number in all correspondence with us in case of any query relating to the order.

Any error needs to be pointed out to the sales assistant present in the store and get corrected before the customer leaves the premises.
  10. End product variations: The images of the products on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that a device’s display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. Your product may vary slightly from those images. Product packaging may vary. The packaging of the product may vary from that shown in images on our website.
  11. Although we use all legally permitted colours in the recommended dosage, some of the colours may cause stain to the tongue, mouth, body or anything it may come in contact with for temporary period of time. And at times may also cause permanent stains on dress, carpets or furniture etc. It is the responsibility of the customer to warn the guests and children of this and the company will not be liable for any damages arising out of this reason.
  12. Since all the cakes and other edible products are produced hand made at our stores by various qualified chefs, the company cannot guarantee that the product ordered by the customer would match exactly to the catalogue menu pictures from what it is was referenced to. Minor changes to the design, colour, shape and texture are at times unavoidable. All accessories on the cake whether edible or not would only be subject to its availability and the company reserves the right to replace it with similar accessories at its sole discretion.
  13. All catalogue pictures at the store or online for guidance purpose only- The shop does not guarantee exact replication of the cake in the picture.

  18. Customers are required to provide a valid order receipt and sign a disclaimer note upon collection to confirm that your order has been received in good condition. Whilst we will provide the customer with correct handling and storage instructions with each order, once collected, the responsibility for any damage through transportation lies with the customer.
  19. Should for any reason an order not be collected in time, we will retain it for 24 hours to allow you sufficient time to call our customer service team on +44 (0)20 89116111 to re-arrange a new time for collection. Please note that we do not offer refunds or replacements for orders that have not been collected within 24 hours after the agreed date and time.
  20. A product which is goods will be your responsibility from the time we deliver the product to you at our store and or when a carrier organised by you collect it from us.
  21. You own a product which is goods once we have received payment in full. (they don’t make sense to me … try making it clearer if possible)
  22. Misrepresentation: We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the products to you, for example, in relation to bespoke cake order if there are any changes made due to unavailability of certain raw materials. We will contact you to ask for this information. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for supplying the products late or not supplying any part of them if this is caused by you not giving us the information, we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.

Collection from stores: While collecting the ordered products, it is the customer’s responsibility to make sure all the information provided by you which include but not limited to design catalogue number, colours, icing options, message, size are matching to the one mentioned in your order receipt.

We the company have the right to refuse giving the delivery of the products to the person coming for collection without the original order receipt. Any balance money owed on the receipt should be settled before collection of the product.
  24. Additional charges: Any changes made to the order after collection is chargeable and at times can be refused at the sole discretion of the store in-charge present at that time.

If the shop assistants are unable to provide a cake within 45 minutes of this time, the customer can, if they wish, ask for a full refund of all monies paid for this order and this will be given back in the same mode of payment used to place the order.

If the product’s correct price at your order date is higher than the price stated to you, we will contact you for your instructions before we accept your order.
