Shipping Update

We are currently experiencing issues with Royal Mail. Shipping is slow. We have upgraded sending everything first class at no additional cost to customers. However if you need a particular date, please pay for an enhanced service. 

Everything ships Weds/ Thurs and we will notify you when it is on it's way. If you have paid for an enhanced service we will send the tracking details.

Bake at Home Kits

Unless specified by you at check out, we send out baking mixes on Wednesday, by Royal Mail 2nd Class post. 

All Bake at Home Kits have a best before date of approx. 3 months after you buy them. This is marked on the packaging.

All kits have clear allergen information on them. Whilst we share a manufacturing space between the Honeycomb Crunch Kit - which contains Milk & Soya, we do not use the same equipment to produce the kits that contain none of those allergens. The three other kits have their own equipment and are not produced at the same time that the kits with those allergens are in production. 

Any questions or concerns, please let us know. 

 
Product Provenance 
Our ingredients are sourced from UK suppliers of UK Butter, Dove Farms GF Flour, Fairtrade Unrefined Sugar, Free Range Eggs and Nut & Peanut Free Chocolate that supports the Cocoa Farmers (see Callebaut site for lots of info on this).
We add NO PRESERVATIVES. This means that yes, shelf life is limited... but, we believe it is better than additives.
The brownie is good at room temp for about a week -we would recommend you pop it into either an airtight container or zip lock bag and pop it in the fridge and just lift it out a bit before you want to eat it. It is better at room temp or slightly warmed in the microwave.
Each pack will have a ‘best before’ date on it when it arrives. This is assuming you are keeping it at room temp. It is usually a week after baking. It will not harm you after this, but it may start to go a bit dry round the edges. If it is a bit dry, pop it in the microwave, serve warm with ice cream or just mix straight into ice cream.
If you want to save and portion your bakes. Pop it in either a ziplock food bag or airtight container and pop it in the freezer. It will be good for about 3 months.
These guidelines cover all brownie, cake and biscuits. They are general guidelines and we know things change.
Handy Hint - If your brownie or cake seems like it is getting a little dry, try popping it in the microwave for 20/30 seconds... this restores it's freshness and ensures a gooey middle...

Posting & Packing
We will wrap your goods in corrugated paper – the sort of stuff used in chocolate boxes – or bubble wrap and then in a good layer of brown paper. This should mean your product gets to you unharmed. If however the unthinkable happens and it is damaged, take a pic and get in touch.
Generally we post first class Royal Mail. Except for baking kits. If you wish to use a tracked or signed for service, there is an option for this at check out, along with the additional cost first class Royal Mail 1st Class is usually between £3.45-£5.50... if you are buying lots, the cost may go up as it is based on the weight of the product being mailed. If something doesn’t turn up in the time we have specified, give it 24 hours… if still not there, then let us know. Refunds will only be issued if goods are delayed by more than 4 days. We are however a lovely bunch, and if it has arrived later than we said, give us a shout we might be able to help you out.
Currently we can only post baked items to UK (including Highlands, Islands, Scilly Isles & Isle of Man). We cannot post further as the service takes too long to get there fresh. If you are desperate for a baking mix or hot chocolate, please email us and we will let you know how much it would be and arrange payment. Sadly our baked goods would not be as fresh as we would like them to be, so we can't send further afield right now. Our kits can be sent internationally, please choose international shipping at checkout.
At busy periods – for example Christmas - we will usually only send out by tracked services to ensure delivery and tracking is available. We don’t want you missing out on your goods. If however it still doesn’t show up – let us know!

All Business orders need to be agreed by email or phone info@bakdcake.com, 07919 075 397.

When will I get it?

Unless stated we bake on a Wednesday for personal orders. So please ensure all personal orders are placed by midnight on the Tuesday beforehand. Any after this time will not be baked until the following week. If you have missed this deadline and need some cake, get in touch asap. This means we send them out on a Thursday, they should then reach you on Friday ready for your weekend. You will get an email when it is on its way... don't worry, we keep in touch. If you need a more specific delivery date (for a birthday etc), please email us at info@bakdcake.com and we will help you out.

As we mentioned before, we are a small, home bakery. From time to time things may crop up that will affect how we can process your orders. If anything is looking to be a problem we will get in touch asap and make alternative arrangements for you. We will always do our best to minimise any disruption to service.... but you know, sometimes stuff gets in the way!
