For delivery of products which are not cupcakes, if these are purchased with cupcakes it will usually be possible to include them in the courier delivery charge. If purchased without cupcakes, products are usually sent by Royal Mail first class post and the price will vary according to weight. Some products include delivery in the price as indicated.

Due to its size and weight, the Acrylic Stand is sent by separate courier delivery between 8am and 6pm; the price includes this charge.
