All these designs and the techniques for making the designs on the cakes that you are shown and taught belong to Linda Ashcroft from ButterCup Cakes. By purchasing a class place, you are free to copy all of these designs for the purpose of your own cake making, excluding commercial use.

Once a class has been booked and it has been paid for it, we are not able to offer any refunds for any reason if you cannot attend. We will allow you to find someone else to take your place on the course and date you have booked. You must notify us by email providing their full name, email address and contact number.
