frequently asked questions
We know planning a special event can be daunting so we hope some of the answers below help. If we have missed anything or you would like to talk to us, please give us a call. We love to get involved in the details of planning an event.
How are your biscuits packaged?
Our biscuits are individually packaged in sealed cellophane bags for freshness, or within a gift box if ordered as a set. Orders can be delivered with a gift tag which can be personalised if they are being sent directly to the lucky recipient.
Can they be posted?
Our biscuits can all be posted - we have spent a long time perfecting our shipping to avoid any breakages. If you do happen to receive a broken biscuit please send us a picture along with your details so we can resolve the issue for you.
When should I place my order?
All our biscuits are made to order by the team at Teacups & Tandems. Please allow at least one week for orders. For bigger orders (40+) we ask for at least two weeks notice where possible.
How long will delivery take?
Smaller orders are posted first class with Royal Mail and we use a dedicated courier for larger orders.
How much is a wedding cake likely to cost?
It is very difficult to provide set prices for cakes as they are all so different. Send us an email and we will happily discuss your ideas before providing a quote.
