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 - we may be able to help 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 offer a refund or date exchange. Our classes are small and we are able to keep costs down by filling each spot, so unfortunately cancellations for any reason aren’t possible.
Thanks for your understanding.
We look forward to seeing you soon and sharing our cake love and
knowledge with you!
