Delivery & returns

Despatch and delivery information

*Despatch is when the order leaves us, not the day it arrives.  

  • LAST ORDER DATES FOR CHRISTMAS: The last order date for pre-Christmas delivery is 21st December. We recommend that if your order is being delivered to Isle of Wight, Channel Islands, Scottish Islands and Highlands, Isle of Man, and Northern Ireland, that you order by Monday 20th December. 
  • If you would like your order delivered at a later date, you can now and choose a future despatch date at the checkout.  
  • We aim to process orders within 2 working days. If you have chosen a specific despatch date then your order will be despatched on your chosen date.
  • At the checkout, you also have the option to select a future despatch date.
  • You will receive an 'Order Confirmation email once you've placed your order. 
  • On the day of despatch, we take the cakes for your order from frozen stock. They are completely safe to refreeze on receipt for up to 3 months if you wish.  All our cakes are suitable for home freezing. The cakes are not individually date stamped but details on shelf life and refreezing are included with your order. You will be sent a 'Despatch Confirmation' email on the day your order leaves us. 
  • We don't include invoices in the parcels, this is because many of the orders are gifts.
  • If you will be out and would like your parcel left in a safe place or delivered to a neighbour, please leave details in the 'Order notes' section at the checkout. Alternatively, at the checkout you can select delivery to a different address.   

UK Mainland orders

UK mainland orders are shipped using a 1-2 day courier. DPD deliver on week days from 7am to 7pm. Please note orders are NOT delivered on a Saturday, Sunday or Bank Holiday. We cannot guarantee particular delivery days. When booking the delivery with DPD, we will use your email in order that you can receive notification from DPD with the delivery information. You are then able to track your order, rearrange delivery or arrange collection from a local DPD pick up point - you can find information about this here

DPD will send a 1 hour time slot as soon as your parcel leaves their local depot, this is usually by 11.00am. DPD will no longer ask customers to sign their handheld units and instead their drivers will sign it on their behalf. They will take a photo of the parcel in your open doorway as proof that it has been delivered. If you're self isolating, please leave a signed note on your door, telling the driver where to put the parcel. Alternatively, you can add a safe place to leave the parcel in our 'Order Notes' section at the checkout or when you get the DPD delivery notification. 

If the order is a gift and going to another person/address, we will use your email for the DPD booking so you can see when they are due to deliver the parcel.
