I have this allergy...

Please ask! Our products are prepared in a kitchen that frequently handles dairy products, nuts, wheat products and a variety of other basic ingredients. We will do our best to help get you the information you need so that you can make a decision as to whether or not it's appropriate for your diet.

Can you bake a cake for a celiac?

Cakes and other baking can be tricky when cooking for folks who live with celiac disease.

Unfortunately at this time, due to the high standards required to certify a product as gluten free, we only offer "Gluten Friendly" prodcuts.

What do you mean by "Gluten Friendly"?

We have a wide variety of products that contain no wheat products whatsoever. However, the same kitchen used to prepare those products is also used to prepare our other baked goods which do contain a variety of wheat and other grain products. For this reason, if you are trying to avoid gluten for dietary reasons rather than for medical issues, there is a large chance that these products will work for you. If you have an adverse reaction to wheat products, if you have allergies to grains and grain products or you live with celiac disease, we caution that we can't say for certain that there aren't traces of these in the foods we prepare.

I have a high sensativity to corn products. Do you have anything I can eat?

Yes! But unfortunately our product selection may be limited. We can say for certain that our Wheatcity Sourdough is likely your best option - it's made from flour, salt and water. There is no commercial yeast and we add no preservatives. Please be aware that we only have one kitchen, so if you are sensative at an evironmental level please take care.

Do you use commercial yeast?

Some of our breads, including our signature Wheatcity Sourdough, contain no commercial yeast at all. In order to leaven the bread we use a starter that was built with our own special blend of locally-milled flour. We allow the dough to ferment over the course of many hours, sometimes as long as two days! This lengthened leavening process is what allows us to develop rich flavours and delicious, shiny bubbles in our bread. We also have many quick breads and baked goods that do use commercial yeast. If you're unsure, or would like to know on a specific item, please give us an ask!

Can I place a custom order for today?

We take great pride in baking everything in our shop from scratch. In order to meet a specific need, that means we need at least a few days to prepare a made-to-order item. There may be a selection of goods that meets your needs, though, as we do bake some extra items to fill out our batches. Please give us a call to see what might be available on short notice.

Can you do a cake with Cinderella? Or Lightening McQueen? Or Buzz Lightyear and the Minions from that Despicable movie?

We are not licenced to use copyrighted materials and take this very seriously. It is illegal to use those likenesses without a licence, and unfortunately many copyright holders do not deal with independant bakeries. We can make use of cake-toppers, for instance, or we can even leave room for you to add favors at home. Ask, and we'll do our best to accomodate!
