My order has not arrived yet. Where is it?

Orders are dispatched every Monday. The cut-off time is Friday at 2pm. This means that if you order before 2pm on a Friday, your order will be sent on Monday. If you place your order after 2pm on a Friday, your order will be sent on the following dispatch day.

All orders are sent via Royal Mail's Tracked-24 delivery, which aims to deliver on the next working day (the day after your order has been dispatched, so Tuesday). However, we are not responsible for any delays. A confirmation of dispatch (along with your tracking number) will be emailed to you. In the unfortunate event that your delivery is delayed, please contact Royal Mail directly as we are not liable for any delays/ damages once orders have left our premises.


How do I store my brownies or blondies?

It is advised that you store your products in the fridge. A use-by date is written on each box and is calculated from the date your product is made. For best results, warm in the microwave for 15 seconds and serve with vanilla ice cream.
I have a nut allergy. Can I still buy your products?
Unfortunately not. Nuts and other nut-based products are handled in our domestic kitchen. DO NOT CONSUME ANY OF OUR PRODUCTS IF YOU HAVE ANY ALLERGY.
I cannot consume products that contain certain allergens. Which of your items can I buy?
All items are handmade and produced in the same environment. Therefore, even if the product you want to buy is free from the allergen you can’t consume, we cannot assure you with 100% certainty that it has not come into contact with other products that do contain the allergen. As such, we advise that you do not make a purchase if you or the person who will consume the product has an allergy. Please refer to individual product page for product specific allergen information. DO NOT CONSUME ANY OF OUR PRODUCTS IF YOU HAVE ANY ALLERGY.
Do you sell vegan or gluten-free products?
Yes, we have some vegan products available for purchase. However, our products are not suitable for those who are allergic to dairy as we cannot guarantee that there are no traces of dairy products. We do not currently sell gluten-free products. Please purchase with caution and refer to the individual products page for more information on allergens. DO NOT CONSUME ANY OF OUR PRODUCTS IF YOU HAVE ANY ALLERGY.
