Colours / Designs
Colours and designs shown on the web site are representative only and The Company offers no guarantee of precise colour or design match, due to the limitations of photography and conditions outwith The Company’s control such as reproduction of images on The Customer’s PC. Manufacturing variations in colour, design, material, length, width and presentation are to be expected although the Company guarantees that no such variations will affect the quality of the product nor shall any variation in length or width contravene the Sale of Goods Act. In particular, the colours/shades of sugarpaste, paste colourings, dust colourings, icing colouring pens and all other products designed to colour sugarpaste or marzipan are not guaranteed to the international nature of manufacture and the effect which environment, temperature and humidity have on such products. The Company also points out that different brands of white sugarpaste icing contain varying amounts of blue colouring in order to obtain the whiteness – adding an icing colouring to white sugarpaste will produce different results depending on the brand of sugarpaste.
Dimensions / Weights / Volumes
All dimensions, weights and volumes stated are approximate and as are accurate as required by UK and EU legislation. The Company advises customers to allow a small variation in dimension / weight / volume when ordering as suggested by common usage and sense.
All goods are stored and handled in a professional, hygienic environment at all times. The Company meets and strives to exceed all Local Authority Environment Health standards, EU Regulations and UK legislation covering the handling and labelling of edible products. Once any edible product leaves The Company’s premises, The Company cannot control conditions which could affect hygiene, safety or quality and, therefore, The Company will not accept the return of any edible item unless it was supplied incorrectly or is faulty. Put simply: when a customer purchases any edible product from The Company, they can be assured it is brand new and has never previously left The Company’s premises.
All goods meet the latest Local Authority Environment Health standards, EU Regulations covering the handling and labelling of edible products. These rules may differ in other countries and The Company is happy to provide detailed ingredients listings in advance of ordering, on request.
The Company reserves the right to change prices without notice and especially for overseas customers, where a currency conversion is required. International exchange rates vary on a daily basis and the price charged may vary slightly from the price advertised due to PayPal and osCommerce software offering different exchange rate calculations. For example: a non-UK customer paying by PayPal accepts PayPal’s exchange rate as part of the terms and conditions of using PayPal. This exchange rate may be slightly different from that used to calculate the advertised product price.
The Company shall strive to deliver all in-stock items within a maximum of 25 business days of receiving cleared payment and, in most cases, will strive to ship the order within 2 business days for delivery within approximately 1 week. However, The Company is bound by Distance Selling Regulations and, as such, is obliged to state that it reserves the right to deliver within a 28-day period. The company stresses that this is a legal requirement and that, in almost all cases, orders are shipped within 7 business days. Faster shipping options may be available at checkout depending on order weight.
By placing an order, The Customer accepts these timescales and special comments/requests re faster delivery added to the order form are not considered part of the Contract of Sale.
The products shown on this web site are also sold by The Company through a physical showroom, by mail-order and by other on-line media. Stock availability shown on the web site cannot be guaranteed and The Company reserves the right to cancel any orders where delivery cannot be fulfilled within 14 days and/or new stock is not expected to arrive right away.
Although rare, an item(s) may become out-of-stock, in which case The Company reserves the right to ship all available parts of the order and, at its sole discretion, to ship the balance or refund the balance to The Customer. The Company will attempt to notify The Customer and offer The Customer the option of a back-order or refund. The Customer is asked to note that orders are not accepted upon a “conditional” basis - The Company has the right to ship whichever parts of an order are available without The Customer having the right to cancel the rest of the order. The shipping costs of any back order(s) will be covered by The Company.
The software used for this website uses a pre-defined system of calculating shipping costs based on product weight and delivery destination. No system can be totally accurate and The Company endeavours to be as fair and equitable as possible when charging for shipping.
The Company will accept returns of most items* within 14 days of the date order was delivered, in line with the Distance Selling Regulations and other statutory obligations. The Custmer must contact The Company direct (telephone is best) within 7 days of delivery to arrange returns. Items returned without prior authorisation will not be processed for refund.
*Certain items such as edible goods, personalized/customized goods, cut ribbon and items designed and approved for coming into contact with foodstuffs (e.g. cake boards) and specially ordered items are exempt from the returns policy. In the case of sugarcraft items this is for food safety and hygiene considerations and in the case of customized / personalized items it is simply because the goods may not be of any use to another customer.
If goods are supplied incorrectly or are faulty, The Company will accept returns and will replace or refund as the customer prefers, reimbursing the customer any reasonable return P&P costs. In this instance “reasonable” is deemed to be as using the same or comparable service as used for shipping the original order. The customer is responsible for the safe return of the item(s). Where the goods are correct but the customer changes his/her mind, The Company will only accept return of goods which remain in original packaging and which arrive at The Company’s offices in “as new” re-saleable condition. Once the item has been received The Company will refund the value of the goods. Shipping and packing costs are not refundable.
For the avoidance of doubt The Company will not sell second hand edible goods of any description, even if packaging is intact. The Company, therefore, cannot accept the return of any edible item unless it was supplied incorrectly or is faulty. This policy may or may not be compatible with the Distance Selling Regulations and The Company looks forward to the legal position being clarified by the courts in the near future.
Timescale is entirely the responsibility of the customer. The Company offers a range of shipping options and ensuring sufficient time for the order to arrive and to be replaced if necessary is solely the responsibility of the customer.
