HOW TO ORDER
How much notice do you need? As much as possible, I usually find that I am booked up around three months in advance. All bookings are heavily dependent on availability as I am one person, with a large amount of bookings. I do my best to accommodate as many orders as I possibly can.
Placing your order To place your order please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the information requested below.
If you would prefer to call my number is 07813282587. Due to my busy baking schedule I am not always able to answer the phone straight away. For a quick or urgent response please email! Please note that even if we speak by phone, I will also need to confirm the order in writing by email, so it is always helpful to begin an enquiry via email if possible.
When you contact me please give me as much information as possible. The following information is very helpful in ensuring your enquiry is dealt with efficiently:
1) What you would like to order, including sizing/portions needed, flavour, decoration and any special requirements.
2) What date you would like your order for.
How to Pay
All orders must be paid for in full before baked – NO EXCEPTIONS!
I can accept Cash if delivered in person.
I can accept Cheques for amounts over £100, as these need time to clear so please allow for this when planning your order.
I can accept Bank Transfer (preffered method of payment)
I can accept Paypal, which is an online Credit and Debit Card Payment System. You do not need a Paypal account to pay this way – I can invoice you direct where you can go onto pay as you would with any online card transaction. There is a 5% Fee if paying by Paypal.
*At this present time I DO NOT have the facilities to take any card payments by telephone*
