Incorrect address

If you provided the wrong address accidentally, please email us as soon as possible: with subject line ‘Incorrect address’.

The address can only be changed if your order has not been shipped. Unfortunately, if your parcel has already been dispatched, we will be unable to intercept the parcel to change the address. The cost to have the parcel reshipped will be at the customer’s expense. 

Return to sender

The Larder does not take responsibility for uncollected parcels or incorrect addresses that are returned to sender. If your tracking states that the parcel has been delivered, please first check with your local post office before contacting us. Alternatively, call Australia Post with
your tracking number to acquire further information on 13 76 78 (Australia). 

Responsibility for secure address

Our shipping services do not require a signature. Your parcel will be left at the door by the courier, a secure location or in your letterbox. Once delivered to your shipping address, The Larder takes no responsibility for theft or damages that may occur. We recommend using an alternate secure address if you will not be present to accept your delivery.

Return & Exchange Policy

We fundamentally believe you will love the products you purchase from us. That's because we strive to ensure that they’re sourced or made in line with our customer needs. We understand, however, that sometimes a product may not be what you expect it to be. In that event, we invite you to review the following terms relating to returning a product or making a claim for a refund, credit, or replacement product.

Importantly, the rights described in this policy are in addition to the statutory rights to which you may be entitled under Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) and other applicable Australian consumer protection law and regulations. Please note that there may be limitations to your right to return and obtain a refund for products. However, these will always be subject to your statutory rights.

There are a number of reasons why you might want to return a product or make a claim for a refund, credit or replacement product:

-You received the wrong product
-You received a damaged product
-Your order got lost in transit by the courier company
-Your delivery was incomplete

Cake Pick-Ups Release Waiver

As much as (we) The Larder have enjoyed making your desserts or cake, if you (the customer) decide to pick up the item The Larder is NOT responsible for the cake, once it leaves our location. We WILL NOT replace or refund damaged cakes.

If you plan to pick up, here are a few important tips:

  • Bring an enclosed, air-conditioned vehicle with a flat/level surface to set the cake on. (Seats and laps are not level!) A SUV, station wagon or hatchback are best.

  • CLEAR vehicle space of loose objects that could fall onto or roll into the cake.

  • Keep cake as cold as possible during transport, and away from sunlight.

  • Drive carefully. Turns, stops and starts should be performed in an EXAGGERATEDLY SLOW manner. Avoid bumps and use a very slow speed on curves.

Any cakes not delivered by The Larder prior to your event will require immediate refrigeration unless specifically directed otherwise by The Larder. Long periods at room temperature, especially outdoors in South Australian weather may weaken the structure of the cake and risks damaging the quality and overall stability. Extended periods of non-refrigeration also increase the risk of food borne illness and are not recommended.

You (the customer) understand the risk involved in transporting (your own) cake, and agree to take full responsibility for any damage that occurs once the cake leaves The Larder. During the consultation, you will be prepped and well informed. If you decide to go ahead will need to sign a waiver form confirming you understand this information. Both parties will have copies of
