FAQs – Craft & Crumb


 How long does it take to receive my order?

** At Christmas time and due to extra covid restrictions placed upon our warehouse, this extends to 7-10 working days**

Once you have placed your order and payment has been received, we aim to dispatch your order 1 working day later.  Therefore, you can expect to receive your parcel 3-5 working days after the day you placed your order if you book it on our standard service. If we are unable to do this for any reason we will notify you straight away.  If you need your kit in a hurry please add express or next day delivery to your order.

If the courier has attempted delivery multiple times and you are not home, they will return the parcel back to us.  In this instance you will need to re-pay the delivery charges in order for the couriers to attempt delivery once again.

What do I do if I don't receive my order?

We must be notified within 5 days if an order has been undelivered so that we can chase it's whereabouts. Please email us at hello@craftandcrumb.com to notify us of any problems. We cannot be held responsible for undelivered boxes outside of this time frame.

Are the card cake and cupcake baking pans okay in the oven and do I need to grease or line them?

The cake pans included in the cake decorating kits are made from non-stick and heat-resistant carton board (they can be used in an oven up to 240°C conventional/220°C fan-forced). They are  biodegradable and disposable cake pans. There’s no need to store, line or wash up these cake pans – simply use once and discard. 

How long can I store my kit before using it and how shall I store it?

At Craft & Crumb we only source the best possible ingredients we can find and ensure all our products have a shelf life of at least 6 months from when we send out the kit. However most products to exceed this. The item with the shortest best before date will determine the overall best before date.

The ingredients are shelf stable at room temperature (12-18 degrees C.)   Please do ensure that you keep all products in a cool, well-ventilated dry place away from direct sunlight - some of our kits contain chocolate that will melt if conditions are hot.

I have purchased a cake kit and would like to know when is it best to bake and decorate my cake/ cupcakes ahead of my party?

We suggest that the cake is best made the day before your party to allow for minimum stress on the day...however we realise this is not always possible.  We suggest always freezing the sponge after it is baked so that it is easier to decorate - please see our kit instructions for further details on this.  It is therefore possible to bake the cake sponges days/ weeks before your party and then take it out the day before or on the day to decorate it.  You do not need to wait until the sponges are defrosted before icing but obviously you need to leave enough time for the cake to properly defrost before serving it....this takes around 2 hours at room temperature.

Once the cake is decorated store it in a cool place away from direct sunlight.  It is best to cover the cake or store in an airtight container to stop it drying out.  With the cupcakes it is best to decorate them then store in an airtight container to maintain freshness. Cupcakes can also be made ahead of time and frozen but there is risk that they will come away from the sides of their paper cases if you do this.

Are the Cake Kits suitable for Children to make?

Craft & Crumb cake kits have been designed for adults. However, if an adult allows a child to participate it should be kept in mind that adult supervision is recommended at all times. The kits may contain small or sharp objects that could be a hazard for children.

Are the biscuit, cupcake and party bags suitable for children?

All of our biscuit, cupcake and party bag kits are designed for children to use but we advise adult help at all times to get the best results.
