Terms & Conditions

All Cakes made by Lynne Graveling and Inspired Cakes are subject to the following terms and conditions


All our ingredients are of the highest quality.
The cakes are made in premises in which nuts are used and although every effort is taken to keep ingredients separate, cakes may contain traces of nuts or nut oil.
The cake may include non-edible decorations which must be removed with care prior to the cake being cut and served.


Sugarpaste (the soft icing covering the cake) is not designed to be refrigerated and as such cakes with this icing should be stored in a cool dry place, preferably in the box they were supplied in as refrigeration may cause colours to run.
Decorated fruit cakes will keep for several months but sponge cakes should ideally be consumed within one week of delivery.


We prefer three months notice on wedding cakes however we will accept short notice cakes subject to the availability of the date required.
Any cake ordered from a picture or photo of a cake produced by any other cake maker, can only be reproduced by Inspired Cakes as our interpretation of that cake and will not be an exact reproduction of the cake in the picture or photo.


We require a deposit on placement of order for all cakes costing over £50, which is deducted from the final balance. This is usually 25% of the balance or £50, whichever is smaller. Deposits are non refundable and non transferable.

Final Balance Payments

The balance of wedding cakes is due 14 days prior to collection or delivery and should be made via cash, cheque (payable to Lynne Graveling) or BACS (details on request). For all other cakes, the balance is payable on collection or delivery via cash or cheque.


Deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable. Full payment of your cake balance is required if cancellation is within 14 days of the wedding date or 50% of cake balance is required if cancellation is within 30 days of the wedding date. This is due to the unlikelihood of being able to rebook your date to another couple at short notice.


Please note cakes with sponge tiers may not be completed until the day prior to the celebration to ensure the cakes are as fresh as possible, so please prearrange viewings of any wedding cakes ordered. No liability will be taken by the company for any omissions or errors on wedding cakes if they are not viewed by the bride prior to the wedding.


Cakes will be delivered and set up at the venue if required. A complementary delivery service is offered within a 10 mile radius of our premises. Venues outside this area will be charged at a per mile rate for the round trip.
Cakes may be collected from our premises by arrangement.


Inspired Cakes reserve the right to use any image of a cake made by Lynne Graveling and Inspired Cakes for publication and promotional purposes at a later date.

Return of Hired Equipment

All hired equipment must be returned within 3 days of the wedding date (unless alternative arrangements have been agreed prior to wedding) or extra charges may be levied to cover further hire costs.
Any costs to repair/replace damage to hired equipment will deducted from deposits paid.
