MAKING AN ORDER
Once you have selected the Cupcake you wish to order from your chosen Baker and provided all requested information, you may submit your Order by clicking the ‘place my order’ button.
HOW WE WILL PROCESS YOUR ORDER
Once we have received your Order, we will submit it to your chosen Baker and you will receive an order confirmation email to confirm that your Order has been received and is being processed. Unless otherwise stated, your Order must allow at least 2 clear working days (not including bank holidays) for the Baker to bake your cake (this means that if you want the Cake to be delivered on a Friday, you must submit your Order on Tuesday allowing the Baker Wednesday and Thursday to bake)
IF THE BAKER CANNOT FULFIL YOUR ORDER
If the Baker cannot fulfil your Order, we will inform you of this by email and will not charge you for the Cake. This might be because of unexpected limits on the Baker’s resources, because they have identified an error in the price or description of the Cake or because the Baker is unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified. We encourage all our Bakers to notify us promptly if they are unable to fulfil an Order.
YOUR ORDER NUMBER
If the Baker accepts your Order, we will assign an order number to your Order and tell you what it is when the Baker accepts your Order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your Order.
Neither we nor the Baker can guarantee that an Order will be delivered on the delivery date/within the time you have selected but the Baker will do their best to ensure that the Order is delivered on time. Neither we nor the Baker can accept any responsibility or liability arising from a late delivery of a Cake.
IF YOU ARE NOT AT HOME WHEN THE CAKE IS DELIVERED
If no one is available at the delivery address to take delivery, the Baker will leave the person you have instructed them to deliver the Cake to (the Recipient) a note about how to rearrange delivery or collection (if suitable). The Baker will only hold a Cake until the end of its shelf life before disposing of it. If a Baker disposes of a Cake because it has passed its shelf life, or the Baker has otherwise been unable to deliver the Cake to you in accordance with this terms, you will not be entitled to a refund.
IF DELIVERY DETAILS PROVIDED ARE INCORRECT
Neither we nor the Baker shall be liable for any delay or failure in delivery of the Cakes that is caused by your failure to provide the Baker with adequate delivery instructions or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of the Cakes.
CAKE, PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONS AND PRICES
Whilst we do our best to maintain sufficient stock levels, we cannot guarantee availability of stock at all times.
- We have taken extra care to ensure that all descriptions are accurate. However, orders will only be accepted if there are no material errors in the description of the Cake or their prices as advertised in this catalogue. Packaging may vary from that shown. The weights, dimensions and capacities given are approximate only.
- We sell a wide range of edible and non-edible colourings and therefore appreciate the importance of variation in colour. We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colours of our Cake that appear on the website. However, as the colours you see will depend on various factors such as lighting, monitor display make and type, monitor display settings etc, we cannot guarantee that the appearance of illustrated colours will accurately reflect the colours of Cake supplied.
To the extent permitted by applicable law, we disclaim all warranties, express or implied, as to the accuracy of the information contained in any of the materials in the catalogue. We shall not be liable to any person for any loss or damage which may arise from the use of any of the information contained in any of the materials in the catalogue.
EDIBLE AND NON-EDIBLE CAKE
WARNING: We advise caution in the use of non-edible items on cakes and other edible Cake, and do not accept any liability whatsoever for the inappropriate use of any Cake.
ORDERS FROM OUTSIDE THE UK
Customers ordering from outside the UK please note that, in some cases, Cake available in this catalogue may not be purchased in certain countries under local laws or due to licensing rights. Users are responsible for compliance with local laws if and to the extent local laws are applicable.
IMAGES AND LOGOS
Images and logos. If you provide an image and/or a logo to us to use on a Cake, you must own the intellectual property rights in that image and/or logo or you must have all necessary permissions to use the image and/or logo on the Cake. Your Order may be refused by the Baker if there is any concern that the use of any image and/or logo might infringe the intellectual property rights of a third party. You shall indemnify and hold us and the Baker harmless against any and all damages, liabilities, costs, expenses and/or losses arising out of or relating to any breach of this clause in relation to any claim or action that the use of any images and/or logos provided by you infringes a third party’s intellectual property rights.
PRICE AND PAYMENT
Where to find the price for the cupcake. The price of the cupcake (which includes VAT and delivery costs) will be the price indicated on the Website when you placed your Order.
What happens if we or the Baker got the price wrong on the Website? It is always possible that, despite ours and the Baker’s best efforts, some of the Cakes may be incorrectly priced. If the Cake’s price at your Order date is wrong, we will contact you to confirm the correct price before the Baker starts processing your Order.
When you must pay and how you must pay. Payment for all Orders must be made through the Website. Payment can be made by VISA, American Express, Mastercard or Maestro. You must pay for the Cakes when submitting your Order.
If the Baker cannot accept your Order. Because of standard banking procedures, once you have submitted an Order that you are paying for by credit or debit card and your payment has been authorised, your bank or card issuer will “ring-fence” the full amount of your Order. If your Order is subsequently rejected by the Baker (as described in this terms above) or cancelled for any other reason, your bank or card issuer will not transfer the funds for the Order to us, and will instead release the relevant amount back into your available balance. However, this may take between 3 to 5 working days (or longer, depending on your bank or card issuer).
You acknowledge and agree that neither we nor the relevant Baker will be responsible or liable to you in relation to this delay by your bank or card issuer in the release of funds back into your account.
Payment will be taken (from the card supplied by yourself, or by means of presenting your cheque to the bank) once Cake have been picked, but prior to dispatch. You will receive an invoice confirming payment taken. NO CAKE WILL BE DISPATCHED BEFORE PAYMENT IS RECEIVED. We will contact you immediately should we experience problems taking payment. (Please note that cheque payment may delay processing of your order, particularly where items are out of stock and/or substitutions made).
We reserve the right to send Cake up to the value of the payment received.
We reserve the right to process payment for a reduced value should some items become unavailable.
Refunds will be credited directly to the same card you used to place your order or if requested can be sent by cheque.

EU DATA PROTECTION
To comply with the European Union General Data Protection Regulation, we aim to abide by the new May 25 GDPR Regulation on Users data.

Such data may be transmitted across international borders even if both the sender and receiver are located in the same country. Transmission takes place in the form of separate coded packets, but the details of the sender and receiver are not encrypted.

By using our email service, the User gives us permission to reply to the User one or more times via email. Build-A-Cupcake Ltd is not responsible for any damage resulting from the use of email. Furthermore, the email service may not always be available, owing to technical reasons beyond the control of Build-A-Cupcake Ltd. Build-A-Cupcake Ltd collects data (through cookies or web beacons) regarding visits to the Site (including the User’s IP address) which are used for statistical or security purposes, for monitoring the system, for management and marketing purposes, and in order to comply with legal and regulatory obligations. These data are anonymous. Build-A-Cupcake Ltd only collects data that identifies the User when such data are supplied voluntarily. In this case, Build-A-Cupcake Ltd may use such information for the same purposes as data collected regarding visits to the Site. Appropriate security measures are taken to ensure that third parties cannot gain access to such information.
Build-A-Cupcake Ltd reserves the right to communicate personal data to external service providers, while ensuring that such providers handle the information confidentially. Build-A-Cupcake Ltd may, however, be required by law, a court order or an administrative decision to communicate personal data to third parties.
