CAKE AND FOOD
We can provide you with a beautiful and tasty art themed cake through our lovely cake lady Aline who makes delicious cakes and provides us with a 10% discount on her usual prices.
Prices for art themed cakes or cupcakes are above. Once the date is set you can also contact her to discuss an individual themed cake. She will deliver your cake directly to the studio. Alternatively parents are welcome to bring their own cakes and /or food. There is no need to bring anything else unless you want to. You can bring your own plates/cups and decorations if you want to. If not we will set up the table in a similar style to the picture on the left. It will be covered in paper so the children can draw on the table.
No deposit is required, if the party is cancelled within two weeks of the date we would ask for a 25% cancellation towards my material costs/childcare. Once the craft is finalised we will send you a full info sheet with details about the room and format including payment details.
