If you’ve tested positive for Covid then just send us your PCR confirmation and we’ll reschedule your session. We understand it’s not your fault and you’d rather be with us baking.

Our ticket policy lets you  reschedule your booking if you give us a minimum two weeks notice. Any time less than that makes it hard for us to sell tickets for the session.

Unless you’ve tested positive and can supply confirmation, than I’m afraid you need to stick to the session you’ve booked for.

Yes, right now we are following Government guidelines and so you must wear a facemask at our indoor venue unless you are medically exempt.

We’re working hard to offer a plant-based bake option for our vegan friends and environmentally cautious community.
