All our boxes may contain nuts, gluten, egg, citrus and dairy or traces of the before-mentioned. If there are any specific dietary requirement please contact us BEFORE placing an order, and we can do our best to accomodate.

The Dessert Atelier does not take any responsibility for the content on any messages sent from a sender to a recipient. Messages are not altered or censored by us and are sent as requested by the sender.
Any alcoholic beverages featured in our dessert boxes are designed to be delivered as a genuine gift to a person and does not exceed two litres. The gift can only be delivered to another adult who is not the purchaser. For all gifts with alcohol included, please ensure that the recipient is aged over 18 years and is available to receive the delivery.
The Dessert Atelier deliver dessert boxes on business days between 8:30am and 6:00pm AEST. Unfortunately, The Dessert Atelier cannot guarantee specific delivery times, even when requested by customers. This is due to our driver’s workload, route schedules, traffic and unforeseeable events.
The Dessert Atelier will make all reasonable efforts to have dessert boxes delivered on the date requested, and within the timeframe requested. However, The Dessert Atelier shall only be liable for failure to deliver in circumstances where they are at fault for the serious delay.
If there is a slight delay in delivering your order, you are not entitled to a refund. We do the best that we can to ensure reasonable delivery.
Ideally the purchaser has arranged a day of delivery and location where someone (ideally the recipient) is be available to take receipt of the dessert box. If someone is not available to accept delivery and the driver deems it safe to do so (unless otherwise advised at time of purchase by the purchaser), the dessert box will left at the the premises (i.e. doorstep or other safe and visible place).
If this is not an option, or if you specify (at time of sale) that you do not wish the box to be left, then we will redeliver the box the next day pending payment of a $19 re-delivery fee (for FREE delivery zones) plus any additional delivery surcharges.
CHANGE OF ADDRESS
If you need to change or amend the delivery address for your order, you must notify us in writing the day before your scheduled delivery.
If you fail to notify us the day prior, and simply notify us the day of your scheduled delivery, we will make every attempt to accommodate this change. However we cannot guarantee delivery to the new address. Should our delivery driver need to reroute to somewhere else, an additional fee will be charged.
If the information you provide to The Dessert Atelier is incorrect or incomplete, we will charge a fee up to $19.00 for redelivery.
Please note that if an incorrect address is provided to us, we cannot be held responsible and therefore do not offer refunds for these orders.
If we cannot access a property to deliver an order (for residential deliveries), we will always try and call the purchaser to discuss. Should we be unable to make contact, or clear instructions are not provided, we reserve the right to charge a redelivery fee.
Phone numbers of recipients for apartments or gated complexes should always be provided.
For delivery to businesses, if the person is not at work or has left early, we will endeavour to leave the dessert box with someone and attempt to notify the purchaser.
If we cannot leave the dessert box with someone at the business address, we will charge a redelivery fee to deliver on the subsequent business day.
REFUNDS & RETURNS
We confirm that in the unlikely event that there is a problem with your order we will refund your purchase in full if we are unable to come to an agreed solution for redelivering your purchased products. To be eligible for a refund, the issue must be at the explicit fault of The Dessert Atelier, for example:
- If the order is delivered after 6.30pm on the scheduled delivery date;
- If The Dessert Atelier incorrectly records the recipient or delivery address details; and/or
- If there is any other unexpected issue for which The Dessert Atelier is clearly at fault.
However, if incorrect information is submitted by the purchaser or there is a problem with delivery at fault of the purchaser, The Dessert Atelier will not be held responsible if the order is not fulfilled.
