FAQs

♥ Do you offer gluten free/sugar free/ dairy free/allergy free cakes?
Gluten free – Unfortunately I do not offer gluten free. However, I can offer a gluten sensitive cake with almond flour instead of wheat flour. I cannot guarantee gluten free since there are gluten products offered in the facility. If gluten is an allergy, I recommend you order elsewhere since there is too much of a risk of cross contamination.  If your preference is gluten free, I would be happy to help!
Sugar free – Yes! Sugar can be replaced with a sugar substitute if needed, however, it may
alter the texture and taste of the product.

Dairy free – Yes! Milk products in the cake itself are substituted with almond milk or coconut milk. Vegan butter is substituted for dairy butter for a delicious tasting ‘buttercream’.
Allergy Free – All of our products are produced in an environment where the following are present, and may come in contact with your product: nuts, soy, wheat, dairy, and products containing gluten.

*Please note that I do not operate an allergy free kitchen. Cake ingredients or machinery may contain or come into contact with WHEAT, EGGS, PEANUTS, TREE NUTS, SOY, and MILK. If you have any further concerns, please feel free to contact me.*

♥ Do you offer tastings? What is included in a tasting?
Yes! Tastings are $21.58 (including taxes). You can choose up to five cake/frosting flavor combinations, e.g. vanilla cake with chocolate buttercream, The Elvis, lemon cake with lemon buttercream, etc. Each tasting comes with two of each flavor for a total of 10 cupcakes. Tastings can go along with a free consult or you can take your tasting to go and have your free consult at a later time.

♥ How do I store my cake/cupcakes?
Cakes and cupcakes without a fruit filling  can be stored at room temperature for up to 3 days as long as they are kept in a container or the cake box it came in. If you have room in the refrigerator, I recommend that the cake/ cupcakes be placed in a box and then in the fridge. If there isn’t room for the box, I recommend placing the cake in the fridge for 15-30 minutes until the frosting has set, take it out and gently wrap in plastic wrap, and place back in the fridge. Toothpicks can always be inserted into the top of the cake and the plastic wrap can rest on those instead of the cake itself.  The plastic wrap/box will protect the cake from absorbing any fridge smells and to protect it from drying out. a few hours before serving unwrap/unbox it and set it on the counter to come to room temp before serving.

♥ Do you have a storefront?
No, I operate under Missouri’s cottage law (https://www.senate.mo.gov/14info/pdf-bill/tat/SB525.pdf). I own and operate a licensed cottage bakery out of my home. I am serve-safe certified and I take the same precautions as someone would if they were baking in a commercial space.
