By purchasing this insurance product, you are declaring that to the best of your knowledge and belief that all the statements in the Statement of Facts (see below) are true and complete.

Arranged by ADS Insurance Brokers Ltd and underwritten by Ansvar Insurance, this preferential insurance scheme for BSG members is aimed specifically at hobby cake-makers and people who run a small sugarcraft business from home and sell their cakes via recommendation, advertising and at craft and wedding fayres.

It is noted that no member will be insured whose annual turnover from sugarcraft activities exceeds £12,000.

  • Public & Products Liability

This covers your legal liability to third parties (members of the public, individuals or organisations) for accidental injury to persons or damage to property arising out of your sugarcraft or cake making activities, including tuition (up to 10 students attending). Also insured is Products Liability which covers your legal liability to third parties arising out of products supplied and includes food poisoning. The standard limit of liability is £2m for both public & products liability but can be extended to £5m. The premium as detailed above includes insurance premium tax at the prevailing rate and administration charges.

  • All Risks Cover to your Cakes / Equipment

This will cover loss or damage to the cake/equipment whilst at home, at a venue or in transit in your own vehicle. The total sum insured will be £3,000 with a single item limit of £1,000. A £50.00 excess will apply to each and every claim. Cakes in transit must be carefully and reasonably packaged to prevent damage and there will be no cover for cakes left in an unattended vehicle. The premium for this cover as detailed above includes insurance premium tax at the prevailing rate and administration charges. All Risk Cover is only available as an addition to Public & Products Liability Cover and is not available on its own.

There are also options to add ‘Money Cover’ or to only have ‘Public & Products Liability Cover’ only. All options are available in our online store.
