      Frequently Asked Questions

      Learn How it Works!

      Do you make accommodations for food allergies or dietary restrictions?

      Please know that we are NOT an allergy-free or nut-free facility. Remember, while the recipes can be modified, we are not an allergy-free facility for modified ingredients. We do, however, have the ability to cater an ENTIRE event to accommodate different dietary needs/restrictions, including gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, and vegan. For your safety, individual adjustments cannot be made at an event that is open to the public. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns. 

      What should kids wear?

      Keep those piggies covered! Closed-toe shoes are preferred, and ponytails or hair pulled back. We will have aprons available, but kids should wear comfortable clothing that can get messy.

      What is your cancellation/rescheduling policy?

      Please know that we do not offer refunds. If you cannot be in attendance at your scheduled event, a request must be received within 5 days prior to your event. Following this procedure, we will issue a credit for use on a future date, minus a 10% fee. After the 48-hour window, you may send a sibling or friend in your child’s absence; however, no refund or credit will be issued.
