We may then, at our discretion, require you to send us a photograph of the goods which are the subject of the complaint. We may also require you to return the cake to us, postage and packaging to be refunded by us in this instance.

6.2 You should note that where you order any cake with a topping, the topping by its nature may become dislodged during transit. In most cases, you will easily be able to replace the topping on top of the cake and this will in no way affect the quality of the cake itself. Accordingly, in that event, you will only be entitled to the remedies under clause 6.3 if there is some other problem with the quality of the cake after the topping has been replaced.
