Hi I am new to this site am the mother of a 2 year old boy who has a sever peanut allergy. I am from South Jersey and am always looking for peanut free bakery items. There is one brand of Cupcakes(that another mother who has a peanut allergic son told me about) that are sold at Shoprite manufactured by Freed's Bakery that are nut free and is not manufactured in a facility that processes nuts. I usually buy them and stick them in the freezer. However, when looking on their website I saw that you cannot order them directly. They only sell to stores and they don't always have them ( but usually do for holidays). Does anyone know of a local peanut free bakery?

My husband and I were actually thinking of taking a cake decorating class for this very reason. I think I will have to check that out. Thanks!

I'm not in your area but I know you can order from Divvies and get dairy, egg, peanut and tree-nut-free cupcakes that are supposed to be awesome. I like their cookies and other things.

Also, A&J Bakery in Rhode Island ships across America, I believe, and has very nice looking stuff. NOt sure how a cake would ship, though.

I heard someone talking about peanut/nut-free cupcakes for sale at Walmart but as we deal with more allergies than that I didn't pay close attention but that would be cool for you if they have them at your local Walmart.

Also, not what you asked at all but I took a cake decorating class (Wilton level I) and now can make just about any cake I see for sale in grocery stores, etc. It is easy but making and decorating a cake is time-consuming so not for everyone. It is a nice skill to know with a food-allergic child.

Good luck finding what you want!

Ohhhhh! Look what I just found.

Looks like there might be some in NJ, too!

Yes, I would say you should look into home making. I would not order from a bakery unless it had good cleaning practices or was a nut free bakery like divvies or A and J in Rhode Island.

We LOVE cherrybrook kitchen and they are available in many stores now or you can purchase online. There are also many other mixes available now that might work for you. Even the gluten free ones taste pretty good in my opinion.

You can also buy cupcakes from Liberty Bakery Online. Their website is http://www.libertybakeryonline.com/. They are in Florida. I have tried them and they are delicious!

Since managing food allergies, I have become a novice cake decorator. Recently, I have been making cakes made up of cupcakes. You can make any design you like and the distribution to kids is so much easier. They just pull a cupcake, no cutting or forks. In addition, you can make the cake and then take extra cupcakes if you think you will need them. We love Cherrybrook kitchen vanilla.

We live in las vegas and I have the same problem, Hi, I'm Juliette my family and I live in las Vegas, NV. I've been a stay-at-home mom for five years and I've always loved baking for my family and friends. My son has a tree nut and peanut allergy and almost everything you buy these days has either nuts in them or is made in a facility that uses peanuts or tree nuts. So all my products are nut free and never come in contact with any nuts. I love to bake everything from cookies to cakes and now I would like to share my sweetest creations with you. I started making cakes because I had bought cakes before from a fancy bakery and wasn't impressed. I wanted exceptional moist taste, limitless design possibilities, organic ingredients and nut free. I started to make my own cakes and learned many ways to make beautiful and delicious cakes for everyone to enjoy. www.fairytalecakeslv.com

Hi Juliette,

Had a look at your site...very cute. I'm in Canada and so of course you are too far for us to order but I wanted to comment on what you are doing. Your cake options sound delicious and your selection is excellent. Best of luck with your business...it's always exciting when a fellow peanut allergic mom goes out and does something special for the Anaphylactic world!! Wish we could try your cakes.

Hey there, I was concerned about the same thing. I actually make a batch of cupcakes from time to time and put them in the freezer. Then I can pull a few out and decorate them myself. There's also a great cupcake book by Martha Stewart that has an allergen free chocolate cupcake recipe in it. I believe it's called Martha Stewarts Cupcakes. It has lot's of great decorating tips too. I know it's not the same as running out and buying them but I feel better knowing exactly what's in them. Good luck!

For those of you making cupcakes for your child to take to b-day parties you may also be interested in cup-a-cake holders. www.cupacake.com They are individual cupcake holders which grab the cupcake so the frosting stays on the cupcake. We take them everywhere.
