Frequently Asked Questions

Below are some of the questions that we get on a regular basis.  If your question isn’t addressed, please email or call us! We understand your desire to know the facts about what you are buying!

What are the ingredients in Buddy's cakes & frostings?

Are Buddy Cakes made in a gluten free facility? What about top 8 free?

Yes, Buddy Cakes are made in a completely top 7 allergen free and is an “almost” top 8 free kitchen! Our kitchen is free of all nuts EXCEPT for coconut which the FDA classifies as a tree nut.  We use the strictest standards for cleaning our machines and kitchen as safety is our top priority!  Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns; we understand 100%!:)

Are Buddy Cakes Certified gluten free?

Although we do not have the official gluten free certification, our cakes and frosting have been put through testing and far exceed the official requirements to be labeled “gluten free”.

I don’t have a microwave, can I make Buddy Cakes in an oven?

We’ve got you covered! Just bake at 400 degrees in either a single muffin pan or small ramekin, for 16-17 minutes depending on your oven.

Can I make these into tiny cupcake bites? How many does one packet make?

Yes! These make great bite sized treats as well! One cake packet makes roughly 8 mini cupcake bites.

Will any type of milk work? Can I use water?

Yes, any liquid will work as the liquid is needed for activating the rising ingredients in the cakes. We have used coffee in the chocolate, orange juice and other liquids which all work fine! (Various liquors work well too….don’t judge?)

Shelf life and storage?

Our cakes and frosting have been tested up to 9 months shelf life. In order to ensure the freshness, please store in a cool dry area.

Why is your frosting so thick?

Our frosting is more of a paste because we use pure clean, minimal ingredients. To keep them shelf stable, we do not add additional liquid to thin them out.  Once placed on the hot cake, however, they melt and transform into the most delicious gooey frosting that we have been told is a guilty “squeeze snack” of its own!

If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to let us know.  We want you to feel safe and completely relaxed while you are enjoying our delicious Buddy Cakes!
