CAN I COPY A DESIGN YOU CREATED?

Many of our designs are bespoke creations based on lots of back and forth between us and our clients. It may be their dream wedding cake or even their child’s first birthday cake. Therefore, whilst we support creativity and taking inspiration from designs we would kindly ask you not to copy our work exactly.
