General Shipping Information

We ship Monday- Friday and use UPS Ground Service as our primary shipping resource. However, during the hot Summer months(June, July, August), we do not ship delicate items like chocolates, pies, and cakes on Fridays, and sometimes Thursdays if it’s crazy hot. Our intention is to keep these items out of hot UPS vans and warehouses during the weekend, when shipments tend not to move. Any order we hold will go out first thing on Monday.

Shipping outside the continental US is available, however additional shipping charges will apply depending on the package’s weight and shipping distance.

For these types of orders, upon checkout, regular freight charges will be applied. After we receive your order, we will contact you with an estimate for the additional shipping fees.
