What Products are Dairy and/or Egg Free?
Most of our foods are baked and prepared with dairy and eggs. However, we do offer some products that are gluten, dairy and egg free. We can accommodate most allergies. If you need a dairy and/or egg free menu item, please specify when ordering.
Are Your Products Tree Nut Free?
We do sell products containing tree nuts. Our flour blends and other ingredients, unless noted, are nut free. However, these ingredients are manufactured in a facility that also processes nuts. We do use coconut milk and oil in some of our recipes.
Are All Your Products Peanut Free?
Yes, all of our baked goods are peanut free. We are a peanut free facility.
Are All Your Products Soy Free?
We do use soy in some of our products. Also, some of our purveyors may process soy in their facilities. Most manufacturers are diligent to avoid cross-contamination, but that is outside our control.
Soy lecithin is either processed near or included in products we use, especially chocolate. Lecithin is an effective emulsifier and stabilizer, making it an important element in all kinds of food preparation. The process removes most of the primary allergens from soy, and the Food Allergy Research and Resource Program (FARRP) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) has found that it contains insufficient amounts to cause a reaction in most individuals. While we strive to avoid purchasing products containing any form of soy, customers must decide for themselves what constitutes safe consumption.
Do You Use Artificial Dyes In Your Food?
Currently, we use food coloring containing dyes. If you would like to order something dye-free, we will do our best to accommodate you.
What Products Are Vegan?
Several of our products are gluten free and vegan. We can also make any cake/cupcake flavor vegan.
