GST (Goods & Services Tax)

All prices advertised are inclusive of all taxes applicable to the product. These are calculated at checkout. This is a broad based tax on consumption, which applies to the supply of most goods and services.

Abuse of Cakes Around Town staff members.

Abuse of our staff in any form - ie: verbally on the phone, verbally at our warehouse door, via email, on the internet or via social media will not be tolerated.  It is totally unacceptable to think it is OK to abuse someone who is simply doing their job in ANY business. To abuse us because we closed our retail store down, because you selected pick up when you actually wanted the items delivered (sorry after 20 years we still havent been able to read peoples minds) , or you missed out on a sale item and want it at the discounted price, or you entered your address wrong and your order has been returned to us, or we won't post you a "pick up only" item, or we wont help you with products purchased at another shop or on Ebay. We have really had ENOUGH OF IT. We have ZERO tolerance for abuse of our staff and your account will be deactivated and you will no longer be able to purchase from us. Be Respectful, Don't be a Rhonda. 

Small Order Surcharge.

All orders under the value of $10.00 (excluding postage) will incur a small order surcharge of 75 cents.


Gift Vouchers

Please ensure all Cakes Around Town Gift Vouchers are redeemed at the time of ordering. Once the order has been submitted and paid for by means other than a voucher, we are unable to retrospectively redeem a Gift Voucher to offset that cost. Please bear this in mind.

All Gift Vouchers are issued with an expiry date as indicated on the voucher itself. Once that Gift Voucher has expired, we are unable to extend the expiry date under any circumstances.

It is the Gift Voucher holders responsibility to ensure it is redeemed before the expiry date.
It is only possible to use one gift voucher per purchase.


When do you charge my credit card?

We take payment at the time of order, as opposed to the time of dispatch.

All online credit card orders are charged upfront, at the time the order is made via PAYPAL. We do this to validate the order and to ensure that all stock is pre-purchased. No order is accepted by Cakes Around Town until the order has been checked and approved. If there is a problem, we will telephone you or e-mail you within three (3) working days.

Paying upfront also substantially reduces order processing time, and ensures that as a customer, all you need to do is sit back and wait for your delivery to arrive.

Cakes Around Town is not responsible for any loss or damage caused by late delivery or cancellation of an order or a product.

Our agreement with you only comes into existence once we have both confirmed your order and your payment has been processed.

Once we have accepted payment for an order, cancellation of the order is at our sole discretion after taking into account the circumstances and reasons for cancellation.

Orders that cannot be cancelled will be subject to our Terms of Use relating to Returns and Refunds.

IMPORTANT: Cakes Around Town credit card purchases will be displayed as Cakes Around Town on your credit card statement.



Cakes Around Town accepts online payments using the following credit cards: VISA, MASTERCARD. We use the PAYPAL PCI compliant payment system, which processes your credit card details.  We do not store ANY credit card details in our database.


Sale Items and Quantity Discounted Items

No further discounting applies to sale or quantity discounted items. (ie: discount codes, newsletter codes, etc) No rainchecks on sale items.



We ship our products to Australia only using Australia Post service. We ship internationally via Australia Post International services. Maximum weight for residential delivery in one box is 22KG within Australia. Any order over 22KG will be contacted with delivery options.


Anyone at the Delivery Address who receives the goods will be taken to have been authorised to receive the goods by you. 

It is your obligation to enter the correct delivery address details at the time of ordering. If you enter the wrong address, we will not re-send the order to the correct address at our expense.


Online orders placed on Friday after 11am, Saturday and Sunday 

ALL orders placed after 11am on Friday and at any time of day on Saturday and Sunday will be processed on the following Monday.

We do not ship on Saturdays, Sundays or Australian Public holidays.


Can I add additional items to an existing unshipped order?

Sorry. Unfortunately, additional items cannot be added to an existing unshipped order as your shipping is based on weight. Should you wish to purchase additional items, you will need to place a new order for those additional items, or alternatively (if your order has not been packed) we can cancel your order and you can replace it with the additional items required.  Please note cancellation fee will be applied.


What if my order does not arrive

It is the responsibility of the customer to inform Cakes Around Town if an order does not arrive. Once we learn an order has not arrived by the due date, we will lodge enquiries with the courier/postal service to ensure delivery occurs as soon as possible.

As a guide only, drivers attempt to deliver to addresses between 9am and 5pm.
Unfortunately, we are unable to give a guaranteed time of delivery.

You agree that when our courier partner is satisfied that the order has been delivered, delivery of the order has taken place within the terms of the agreement between you and us.

Without limiting the operation of any other Terms of Use, we will not accept liability for any loss or damage arising from a late delivery or for loss or damage arising after delivery has taken place and you agree that late delivery does not constitute a failure of our agreement, and does not entitle you to cancellation of an order.



All prices on are listed in Australian dollars (AUD).


Quality and Maintenance of Goods

At Cakes Around Town we pride ourselves on the quality of our products and services. It is important to remember, however, that most food items are perishable and may react to temperature conditions, particularly cake, chocolate and fresh items, which, as a result may affect life of the product.

We recommend, if you are not familiar with the correct temperatures for the these food types or specific produce, that you contact us for further information. Once delivery has occurred Quality and maintenance of the produce is your responsibility.


Out of Stock & Substitution

In the unlikely event that we cannot satisfy your order due to stock unavailability, we will contact you (via e-mail or telephone) to offer you an alternative or to determine how you want to proceed with your order.


Refunds and Returns

Cakes Around Town will replace the goods you purchase if the goods you purchase:
• are not of merchantable quality (i.e. if your supplies are damaged at time of delivery – but not if you simply do not like the taste of the cake mix)

• don't match any description given of the goods (this would include corresponding with a photograph of the goods)

• are not free from defects.

Please note, all food products are perishable. There is NO RETURNS on food products - a food product is any product that can be consumed. (food colour, fondant, buttercream, chocolate, dusts, etc)

If you do find you have a legitimate problem with products or goods you purchase from Cakes Around Town, you should stop using the goods immediately and approach us as soon as possible to explain the fault or problem. Please make sure you keep the goods in the condition that you claim has the problem.

You need to approach us regarding any problems with your goods within ‘a reasonable period of time’. What is reasonable depends on the goods, their use and any other relevant information. 

As a rule we will require that they be returned to us within 7 days of the date of purchase for examination of the problem and in order to assess whether to replace the goods or refund you, at our discretion.

Please note that we will not be in a position to address your problem where you have been careless or unreasonable in your demands ie: contacting us 3 months after you received your order.

Note, Cakes Around Town is not required to provide you with a refund if you have simply changed your mind or you find a similar or the same item cheaper elsewhere.

Cakes Around Town will also require a receipt of proof of purchase.

In the event at our discretion we do refund you (as opposed to replace goods) for orders placed online - we will credit back the original payment method on which the order was purchased.

Products indicated as no returns - means just that, NO RETURNS. Items listed in the BEST BEFORE, SECONDS and DISCONTINUED sections of our website all fall under this category.

Security of information from your browser to our server?

A critical concern for electronic commerce is the secure transmission of data. To protect consumer data during transmission, Cakes Around Town uses the latest SSL encryption technology that securely passes transaction data to the Cakes Around Town gateway.

We use SSL (Secured Socket Layer) which means that we encrypt information sent to the server with a key that makes it almost impossible to decrypt. To do this we use the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) 256 bit encryption technology. This is superior to the industry standard.
This is far more secure than giving you credit card over the phone where someone could be listening, or to a cashier where someone can either look over your shoulder or get hold of your credit card receipt. We do not store or take credit card details via the net, all these details are processed by
