Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you cater to dietary restrictions? (i.e. Gluten Free, Vegan, Dairy Free, etc.)

    • I am happy to bake for any dietary restriction​! I have made pies that are vegan, gluten free, paleo, or cater to restrictive diets. I really enjoy the challenge of melding baking and science to yield an exceptional result. Please feel free to e-mail me about any specific requests!

    • Note: I take allergies very seriously and given that my kitchen is not allergen free, I do not accept orders for those with nut allergies.​​

  • How long will it take to make my order?

    • Most orders take 24-48 hours to fulfill. A specific pick-up/delivery date and time will be determined upon ordering. My best advice is to order early (and often!)

  • Do you sell wholesale?​

    • Not at this point -see "Cottage Food Act". Selling wholesale requires different licensing and a commercial kitchen, neither of which I have at this point in time.

  • What is the "Cottage Food Act" you keep referencing?​

    • Glad you asked! The Cottage Food Act is a legislation that allows home cooks to legally sell certain products from their home kitchens​. Under this act I am allowed to sell non-potentially hazardous foods direct to consumers. I have also completed the required food safety course.

  • Where are your cakes listed?

    • They are not listed anywhere because I do not offer cakes. There are so many wonderful cake bakers in Fort Collins that I hold in the highest of regard because they are better at making cakes than I am!​

  • Why are there no custard/cream pies listed?

    • Custard and Cream pies are classified as "potentially hazardous" because they require refrigeration so I am unable to offer them at this time​.

  • Can I make a flavor request?

    • Absolutely! I am happy to make special pies - provided they fall under the cottage food act. E-mail me to ask​.

  • Can I get a seasonal pie out of season?

    • Sorry but no. Aligned seasonal fruits make the most delicious pies!​

  • What's your favorite fruit pie?

    • It's a tie between Blueberry and Apple - it depends on the season​.

  • Have another question? Feel free to e-mail me!
