Terms and Conditions - important please read!
By booking and paying for any of our classes you agree to the following terms and conditions:

Requested spaces are held for a maximum of 3 days.
If your booking has not been paid for in that time, it will be released. 
Once you have paid for your class, you must make a note of the
date and time
as I’m afraid we are not able to send out reminders. 

If you wish to cancel or swap, you will need to find someone else to take your place in the class - we may be able to fill your spot with someone on our waiting list. As this is not always possible, if you/we are unable to fill this space, we will not be able to offer a refund or date exchange. As our classes are small, we are able to keep costs down by filling each spot, so unfortunately cancellations aren’t possible for any reason. Thanks for your understanding.


 

We look forward to seeing you soon and sharing our cake love and knowledge with you!
