Here at Design A Cake we do not like to make promises we can't keep. This is why you won’t see “Guaranteed Next Day Delivery” emblazoned all over our website.


What we can say that is that, for UK Mainland customers, orders placed before midday (Monday-Thursday) have a very good chance of landing on your doorstep the very next day if you choose a courier service.

And finally…

We aim to deal with all orders as soon as possible, and most orders leave us within 24 hours of receipt of order. There are however, understandable exceptions from this.

  • Orders placed using "Next Day" services reference the next "working" day and not the next calendar day.
  • As a rule orders placed before 2pm on a Friday can be expected to arrive on the following Monday, orders placed after 2pm on a Friday can be expected on the following Tuesday.
  • As a rule orders placed using "Next Day" services Saturday & Sunday can be expected on the following Tuesday.
