Frequently asked questions

What is a Chocolate Piñata Smash Cake?


A Chocolate Piñata Smash Cake is a delicious Belgian chocolate shell (like an Easter Egg), filled to the brim with lollies and chocolates. They're an incredible amount of fun to smash open with a rolling pin, hear the squeals of delight and watch the hands dive in!




Do you require a deposit?


Yes, a 30% deposit is required to secure your order. This is non refundable with cancellation within 48 hours of collection or may be transferred to another date beforehand - thank you for your understanding. The balance is due prior to, or on collection/delivery of your product




How do I transport a Chocolate Piñata Smash Cake?


Piñata Smash Cakes are best transported in the boot of the car of a hatchback, or on the front passenger floor, if possible, as it's less likely to move on a flat surface. Don't worry - I'll carry your Smash Cake to the car for you and pop it in!




How do I store a Chocolate Piñata Smash Cake?


Please store the Piñata Smash cake in a cool, dry room and out of sunlight. Please also do not put it in the fridge - the cold of the fridge can damage the delicious Belgian chocolate. When stored correctly, your Piñata Smash Cake should keep well for approximately 3 months.




How do I manage the Piñata Smash Cake on a warm day?


Please do not expose the chocolate products to high heat or store in a warm car - no responsibility will be taken for damaged or melted products once they leave the Little Dot premises. Please precool car with air-conditioning on a warm day. Cooler packs are available on request (fees apply)




Do you cater for allergies & intolerances?


Unfortunately Little Dot is unable to cater for allergies and intolerances as the kitchen handles allergens including wheat/gluten, milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, and soy, and products cannot be guaranteed to be free of these allergens. A list of ingredients is available on request.

How much notice do you need?


It's recommended giving a minimum of two weeks notice to avoid disappointment. However, sometimes I can squeeze in an order with late notice, so please don't hesitate to ask.
