If you have questions about the billing policy of the Academy, please contact: email@example.com.
The Piped Peony Academy does not guarantee results of any kind. Improvement of skills are driven heavily by the amount of practice and effort a member contributes towards the achievement of their individual goals, specific to flower piping and cake decorating.

Members can cancel anytime through their membership portal. The website also sells various cake decorating supplies. The website sells piping tip kits that are tuned and untuned. The website also sells piping blocks. Return of piping tip kits is not allowed. All sales are final.
Membership Use & Sharing Accounts
