If you follow a specialized diet due to food allergies or other concerns, it can be difficult to find cakes
that fit your needs. Since I bake entirely from scratch, I am able to control the ingredients that go into
each cake that I make. Please note that all of my cakes are produced in a kitchen that also
processes nuts, wheat, soy and dairy. It's up to you to decide whether that's okay for you or if
you should avoid it. I take every precaution that I can when baking for clients with allergies, but I don't
have a dedicated area for allergen-free baking, so the decision has to be up to you. If you have a
life-threatening allergy I advise you to hire a baker who has a dedicated allergen-free kitchen!!
I can substitute vegan products for dairy products, so vegan cakes aren't a problem. Organic cakes
just require organic ingredients, so I can provide those as well.
I don't do sugar-free cakes, but I can do reduced sugar for some of my formulas. I haven't been able
to find any sugar substitutes that still taste okay after being heated, so I don't use any splenda,
saccharin, etc. My meringue buttercream has substantially less sugar than the shortening-based icing
that most people are used to, so that would be an option if you want to reduce the sugar in your cake.
I can accommodate allergies to some individual ingredients. If you have multiple allergies you should
email to see if I can eliminate everything that you need to avoid. Because some ingredients are used
as substitutes for others, I might not be able to take care of clients who have to avoid multiple food
As stated above, I do NOT have a dedicated nut-free kitchen. If you have a life-threatening
allergy to peanuts or any other ingredient, I would not get your cake from me!
Corn allergies can be difficult to accomodate, especially in combination with allergies to other
ingredients. Please call me to find out if I can help you if you have a corn allergy
I do NOT do gluten-free cakes, and everything that I bake does contain wheat flour. If you're severely
gluten-intolerant you can go to www.3fellersbakery.com and order a cake from Susan, who has a
dedicated gluten-free kitchen that produces baked products. If you just have a gluten sensitivity that
isn't as severe as celiac disease, and you'd like me to decorate a cake that Susan bakes, she's willing
to arrange that. Again, the decision has to be up to you.
I do not have a kosher-certified kitchen! If you're looking for a certified kosher baker, I would suggest
calling a synagogue that's local to your reception site and asking them if they know of someone they
