I started Cup My Cakez back in 2006 because even as a teenager I was dissatisfied with the other vegan and allergen-friendly treats available and wanted to make a change. I broke away from the common selection of overly sweet, dry, crumbly, gummy, dense, bean-flavored, artificial filled sloppy looking alternative products on the market and I created a product line that was so similar to the real deal you wouldn't feel like you were missing out. In addition to tricking the palette, I aim to also trick the eye. With a background in art, I beautifully decorate your baked goods in either trendy or original artistic ways. My products are not only great for vegans and food allergy sufferers, but also for those just looking for good quality high-end products. All recipes are my own developed from over the past decade and my kitchen is dedicated gluten free + vegan making it the safest choice for folks fearful of cross contamination. Below are some highlighted ingredients that I make from scratch so that you can see just how much effort and care I put into each component. I want you to not only taste the difference, but see the difference. Enjoy!
The life of the party! I make mine in a lengthy two-day process using ingredients that are free from soy, artificial dyes & flavors, trans fats (hydrogenated oils), corn syrup, wax and glaze. Gluten free, Vegan, Nut* Free, but definitely not fun-free!
My homemade spin on chocolate Oreo wafer cookies! Sure, I can find a similar pre-made product on the shelves for my convenience but those contain soy, are made on equipment shared with allergens (most even say "may contain dairy and eggs"!!!) and well, I simply don't like compromise so I opted to make them myself. I use unbleached sugar, fair-trade cocoa and don't use any preservatives or soy. Not for individual sandwich sale, but can be found in all of my Cookies & Cream flavored items. Gluten free, Vegan, Nut* Free
Crunchy, crispy with just a touch of sweetness these crackers are ALL that they're cracked up to be! [Hah]. Like my Moreos argument, sure, I can find a similar pre-made product on the shelves for my convenience but they contain soy, are made on equipment shared with allergens and I simply don't like compromise so I opted to make them myself. I infuse my graham crackers with a bee-free, vegan friendly "honey" syrup and wholesome flax for some heartiness. Used in all of my s'more items. Gluten Free, Vegan, Nut* Free
Gluten Free Flour
Gluten Free flours seem to be popping up in stores everywhere these days, but I have never found any to be a one-flour-bakes all mix. I make my own to control texture (oftentimes GF flours are too gritty or gummy so mine is finer yielding fluffier products) and also I like that I can control ingredients in general, even offering a corn-free flour for some menu items!
Natural Food Colors
Made from plants extracts, natural minerals and spices. Full of antioxidants and natural beauty, I put in the extra effort to provide safe colorants in my products.
* means no nut ingredients are used but these items are produced in a kitchen that used tree nuts. I do not use peanut products.
