Are you really ALL gluten-free?!
Yes! All of our products are gluten-free: cupcakes, cakes, French macarons, and even cinnamon rolls!
Do you use peanuts in your bakery?
We are a peanut-free facility, which is perfect for schools! However, we are not completely nut-free due to macarons. We do our best to avoid cross contamination when nut-free products are requested. We cannot guarantee completely nut-free products.
Do you have any vegan products?
Yes! Our Vegan and Guilt-Free cupcakes are all vegan. We do use palm oil in our vegan products, but rest assured, it is ethically sourced.
What products are dairy-free?
Of course! We have Vegan, Guilt-Free, AND Paleo cupcakes that are all dairy-free! Three options to choose from. HOWEVER, for those with severe dairy allergies, there is a risk of cross-contamination because our dairy-free products (aside from Paleo) are made in a facility with dairy products. We cannot guarantee that our products aren’t cross-contaminated with dairy.
Or soy-free products?
Our regular (gluten-free) cupcakes are only soy-free if they do not contain sprinkles. We also offer Guilt-Free and Paleo cupcakes that are also soy-free too.

Last one, do you have corn-free products?

What do you use in the gluten-free cupcakes?

What is a Guilt-Free cupcake?
A Guilt-Free cupcake is a cupcake that is gluten-free, vegan, and sugar-free.
Are Paleo Cupcakes meat cupcakes?!
We get this question all the time! They are not cupcakes made out of meat. While the main ingredient does include eggs, they are gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy-free, soy-free & rice-free.
What is the difference between a macaron and a macaroon?
From Merriam Webster, a macaron is “a light, often brightly colored sandwich cookie consisting of two rounded disks made from a batter of egg whites, sugar, and almond flour surrounding a sweet filling (as of ganache, buttercream, or jam)”.
A macaroon is “a light cookie made with egg white, sugar, and usually ground almonds or coconut”.
