My Approach:

I understand the challenges you may have to sift through a lot of information to check if the cake can suit everyone's needs. So! I want to keep things as simple as possible to make sure everyone has the option to say "yes" to dessert.

Every cake is baked from scratch to ensure I can tell you exactly what goes into the cakes. This includes the gluten-free flour, the frostings and also using only natural food colours. I cater to Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free and Egg Free dietary requirements. If you have any questions regarding certain ingredients that may be contained in cakes, please contact me.

The journey to create these recipes have been a challenging feat. It's taken years! Whilst there are many available recipes on the internet, many of them don't cater to multiple food intolerances. This would mean one guest with X dietary can have a slice of cake whereas guest with Y dietary cannot. Gluten-free cakes without eggs or nut would often turn out dry and crumbly. Natural colouring needs much more to colour the food, which would end up changing the recipe. But after testing them out with friends with specific dietary requirements and those who were not food-allergic, they finally gave the thumbs up, and I have a small but versatile collection.


Please note that while there are no peanuts or when it states the cake is nut-free, it means there are no nuts in the recipe. However, all Cakey Cake products are not made in a nut-free/gluten-free environment.

It is also the client's full responsibility to disclose all food allergies and the severity of them prior to ordering. Cakey Cakes only focus on food intolerances but not food allergies. I am not a doctor nor do I have a food science background and am careful with not labelling my foods as 'healthy'. As for most things, everything in moderation is essential. 


All specified dietary items will be marked, stored and wrapped separately to prevent cross-contamination. I have got a specific workflow to make things ,then clean down the benches and equipment and in-between steps.

Food Allergy vs. Food Intolerance:

With the number of people diagnosed with multiple food intolerances and allergies, I believe it's my duty to cater for dietary requirements. According to the Food Safety Standards Australia, A food intolerance involves the digestive system in which specific reactions such as irritable bowel symptoms, stomach cramps, skin irritation may occur. Food allergies occur when the immune system reacts to allergens that are harmless to other people. It can cause anaphylaxis (that can be life-threatening). Whereas the reactions to food intolerances may make the person feel unwell to various degrees.

Gluten-Free (Non-coeliac gluten intolerance):

My Gluten-Free Flour blend consists of tapioca, potato, brown rice and rice flour. The mix allows for the exclusion of any wheat, barley or oat products which most plain flours contain. I make sure only to use baking powder, cornflour and icing sugar stated as gluten-free. Please note, only under special circumstances will I cater to Coeliacs as it involves an immune system response and I cannot guarantee the kitchen is entirely void of any wheat. A Gluten-Free (non-coeliac gluten intolerance) is the most I can cater to. 


My recipes use plant-based milk products to exclude ingredients with lactose. 


A few of the cakes do contain nuts so even if the cakes don't mention the use of nuts, please let me know. I try to avoid peanut in my recipes and at the kitchen; however, although they aren't in our recipes, I cannot guarantee there are no traces of peanuts of nuts in our products. 

Egg Free:

I use ingredients such as flaxseed, apple sauce or omit eggs from my recipes. However, only the cakes stated "egg-free" can accommodate this.


While I cannot make the cakes completely sugar-free, I use monk fruit in place of caster sugar in the recipes. I also lower the sugar levels and boost the flavours with other means such as higher quality ingredients, spices, and toasting our nuts.
