TERMS AND CONDITIONS
We reserve the right to alter our these conditions at any time.
For the purposes of this article, the term 'cupcakes' is interchangable with 'cakes' or any other baked goods.
Classes, Workshops and Guides
Please choose the date you book a class carefully as we aren’t able to offer refunds if you cancel. If you wish to change the date of your class, we can try and resell your class place for you. Only if we can re-sell the class place, you can change your booking to a gift voucher or another class date. Unfortunatey if it doesnt resell, your boking and payment for the class will be lost. Think of your class booking as a concert or airline ticket. It works the same.
Please park responsibly. We will not be liable for any parking fine occured while in one of our classes or visiting us.
You attend our workshops completely at your own risk, we will not be liable for any injuries, illness or accidents that occur during your workshop.
We will not tolerate any verbal or physical absuse, either in person, on phone or by email. We reserve the right to refuse your booking and cancel your booking at any time if this happens.
We do not provide any allergen free cakes. We do not cater for any allergys. If your allergy is severe, please consider whether this is the right environment for you to be in as it is a working kitchen. If you do have an allergy and still want to attend the class, be aware that people working next to you will have food you may be allergic too.
During our workshops, we do take photographs, if you’d prefer not to have your photo taken or used in any material, please let us know.
If you would like to use photographs of the cakes you have made in the workshop on Facebook, Flickr, Twitter etc. you are welcome to do so, but please ALWAYS credit them with a note saying that they were made with at a Blue Door Bakery class with a link to our webpage.
We reserve the right to alter course and workshop content at any time.
We will not be held responsible on incur any costs for any parking tickets while participating in any of our classes. Please park responsibly.
All online guides are non refundable. They are our own techniques and are not to be replicated for your own guides or classes.
We do not allow under 16 years old in our classes. The class will be expected to run at a pace to enable us to fit in all the skills other students are paying for. With this in mind, the class needs students who can work at the pace required and not be distracted.
Cake Mentor Plan - This is an online plan for 6 weeks. The methods are NOT for sharing or reteaching in anyway.
Zoom and other online teaching
These classes are non transferable. You are welcome to take notes during the class. Do not share these techniques with anyone. If you cant make the zoom class on the scheduled date, there are no alternatives and you have missed your class. Due to the limited people on a zoom/online course no refunds are available if you miss it. They work the same as a concert or airline ticket.
All techniques well be fully demonstrated during the class. If you cant finish on time during the zoom class, you can take notes and complete your cake after the class has ended.
Covid and other global pandemics
If a class is cancelled beyond my control and no alternative is available, then you will be offered a voucher to use within the next 12 months or refunded in full on the day of your class booking. If you are given a voucher but cant find anything you want to use it on, no refund will be available. It works the same as a voucher purchased from a shop or store. NO cash or refund alternative is available.
Paying with a deposit
If paying with a deposit, £50 is required on booking although this is class dependant. The remaining balance is due 4-6 weeks before your class date. If booking with less than 4-6 weeks before a class, a deposit can not be used and the class must be paid in full on booking. If after paying the deposit, you can not for any reason attend the class, your deposit will be lost or in certain circumstances, exchanged for a voucher. This is Blue Door Bakerys decision as to whether a voucher will be issued. We strongly suggest you consider taking a policy to cover emergency cancellations, you can buy these from http://www.cancelsure-insurance.co.uk/.
If booking a class using a deposit and if after your booking is confirmed the class is then in a sale, you are required to pay the price of the class as it was when you booked the class. You are not entitled to a sale price once your class is confirmed as booked.
Vouchers and refunds
We do not offer refunds on any gift vouchers purchased. They are valid for 12 months from date of purchase.
Once a voucher runs out, these are now invalid. They will not be extended under any circumstances. NO refund will be given on any voucher remaining after a purchase. NO cash or monetary value.
We strongly suggest you consider taking a policy to cover emergency cancellations, you can buy these from http://www.cancelsure-insurance.co.uk/.
In the very unlikely event that we have to cancel a class, workshop or party due to illness we will refund you in full with a gift voucher to book on a rescheduled date. We we not be liable for reimbursing any expenses or costs resulting from us cancelling a workshop or class, for example (but not limited to)travel arrangements. By booking your class or workshop with us you accept that our liability is fully limited to the cost of the class.
If you dont turn up for a class or have to cancel very last minute, you are not entitled to any class transfer, refund or voucher in any way. The class has been prepped, baked and stock has been purchased for your class place. If you do not come to your place booked, your money is lost. There are no circumstances where a voucher is given.
