Please be aware that whilst we can take inspiration from cookie designs, every decorator has a different style and therefore designs may not be able to be replicated exactly. Cookie designs that are made using royal icing may not be possible, as we use roll out icing.
Whilst every effort has been made to take accurate photos, colours may vary due to monitor/phone screens.
We are working with food colouring and not usual ink, so colours may not match exactly.
Changes can be made once an order has been placed, however it may not always be possible. Please let us know as soon as possible after you have placed your order if you’d like to make changes.
