NO. However we do offer a flour less cake slice that does not contain flour as an ingredient in it's recipe.

Do you offer peanut free products?

Yes, but we kindly ask that anyone with a severe peanut allergy avoid our products. We use the same machinery for both our nut and nut free products; thus, it is impossible to guarantee that there are no traces of nuts in our nut free products.

What is a smash cake?

The smash cake is a yellow cake iced in a pink or blue buttercream. For a 1st birthday celebration, you can receive a complimentary smash cake with the purchase of a separate cake from Lovin Oven Cakery. And, for an additional charge, we can decorate the smash cake any way you like.

Can I have fresh fruit in a buttercream cake?

No, we do not offer fresh fruit in a buttercream cake. Buttercream is made of real butter and has a tendency to crack when refrigerated, which means your special decoration could be ruined. Fresh strawberries, on the other hand, need to be refrigerated or they will begin to spoil. In short, the two do not work well together.

Can I order a 3D cake iced in whipcream?

No, because whipcream has no structure and thus provides no stability. The cake will fall apart when we attempt to move it.
