Our Site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some of the Products listed on our Site may be incorrectly priced. We will normally verify prices as part of our order confirmation procedures, so that where a Product’s correct price is less than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount when invoicing you. If a Product’s correct price is higher than the price stated on our Site, or we are no longer able to supply a particular Product for some reason, we will contact you by email to advise you and/or to obtain your confirmation that the amended price is acceptable.

Payment for all Products on our site must be by credit or debit card and those accepted by us are those listed on our website on the date when your order is placed. We will send you an invoice upon receipt of payment.

Payment details for custom orders will be noted on your invoice. Your booking is not confirmed until payment has been received as per the instructions/ terms stated on the invoice.

We will only make a refund to the original credit card or debit card account used by you to make the online purchase. Legal ownership of the goods will immediately revert to us if we refund any such payment to you.

Since taste is a very personal matter and subjective we cannot accept the return of any Products merely because you do not like the taste.

We have made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colours of our products that appear on our Site and also to ensure that the colours on screen are as close as possible to the colours of the actual product. However, the colour of the actual product you see on your screen will depend on your monitor, your screen settings and resolution. Accordingly, we cannot guarantee that your monitor’s display of any colour will accurately reflect the colour of the product on delivery and we cannot accept the return of any product because it does not match the colour you were expecting from viewing your screen display.

Baking mixes and stationary

Our returns policy lasts 14 days. If 14 days have gone by since your purchase, unfortunately we can’t offer you a refund or exchange.

To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused and in the same condition that you received it. It must also be in the original packaging. Our baking mixes are heat sealed for hygiene purposes, if this seal is broken/ tampered with, then it is not eligible for return.

To complete your return, we require a receipt or proof of purchase. Please email us at ayo@ayoscakes.com to advise us of your desire to return the item. We will provide you with the return address. Please include a copy of your invoice or a document stating your name, full address and post code, order number and reason for return in your package. Kindly note, that you will be responsible for the payment of return shipping costs.

Once your return is received and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned item. We will also notify you of the approval or rejection of your refund.

If you are approved, then your refund will be processed, and a credit will automatically be applied to your credit card or original method of payment, within a certain amount of days.

If you need to exchange it for the same item, please send us an email at ayo@ayoscakes.com with a picture/description of the damage so this can be arranged if applicable.

We cannot be held liable for any packages being returned to us that are lost in transit. Please ensure you obtain proof of postage so you are able to contact your postal company in the event your package goes missing.

Workshops, courses and masterclasses

We are unable to offer refunds on any workshops booked if you cannot attend a course. In the unlikely event that we need to cancel a course, we will offer a full refund of the cost of the course fee only, or the option to transfer to another available course. Please be advised that we take no responsibility for the travel or accommodation expenses you may have incurred, and we advise customers who travel from afar to take out travel or cancellation insurance.

We make no warranty that any particular device or software you use will be compatible with this Site. It is your sole responsibility to ensure that your system(s) will function correctly with this Site.

Under no circumstances shall we be liable for any unauthorised use of the Site or the Products.

Under no circumstances shall we be liable to you for any direct, indirect, consequential, incidental or special damages arising out of your use of or inability to use the Site, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damages.

Concerning the Products:

Cakes, cupcakes and confectionery products ordered that are delivered in person are fresh on the day of delivery to or collection by you and will remain fresh for a further 24 hours from the time of delivery or collection if kept by you at an ambient temperature in the box provided. Products placed in a fridge or a freezer or kept for a time longer than 24 hours are so kept at your own risk and we are not liable for any deterioration of the Products in these circumstances.

Items shipped via post are recommended to be consumed on the day of receipt. Your products will contain a threshold for consumption in the package when received. If your product is delivered after this time, we do not recommend it is consumed. If you choose to consume this product, we are not liable for any deterioration of the product or damages and you do so at your own risk. Please note, that the delivery times quoted are an estimate provided by UK Royal Mail and are not guaranteed. We are not liable for any delays in receiving your product(s) and advise you select your shipping option accordingly.

Products which were due to be collected by you from one of our shops and which you failed to collect on the appointed day, or Products which we have taken back to our shop because you were not available to receive the same during the delivery slot agreed for you, must be placed by us in our fridges overnight to comply with Food Safety legislation. Accordingly these Products cannot be kept by us at an ambient temperature and are therefore likely to deteriorate.

We cannot accept any responsibility for deterioration of the Products in these circumstances. We cannot accept responsibility for damage caused by you or by a courier/agent engaged by you to collect Products from one or our shops if they are damaged during transit to your home provided that you or your courier/agent has signed our “delivery receipt” confirming that the goods were in good condition and undamaged at the point of collection.

Under no circumstances shall we be liable to you in respect of any complaint concerning any aspect of any Product which is not raised by you within 24 hours of delivery by us or collection by you or your courier/agent.

We will notify you of any Product containing nuts, other allergens or gelatine on the specific Product’s web page. However, since our kitchen does handle nuts and other allergens we cannot guarantee that traces of nuts or other allergens will not be found in our Products and therefore we do not accept any liability for any damage to health or any distress caused to you by the consumption of such Products.
