Q: Should I refrigerate my cake or cupcakes
Answer: You may refrigerate, our products are made with almond flour and coconut flour. So they stay moist for up to a week. Items that are dairy free can be left at room temperature without a problem.
Q: I have food allergies. Does White Lion Baking Company make anything dairy / nut free / egg free?
Answer: Most of our products are dairy free. It’s easier to tell you what does have dairy because it’s a much smaller list: Cheddar sea salt crackers, double chocolate cookies (and mix), triple chocolate cookie (and mix), white chocolate icing, cream cheese icing. When you come into our store and peer into our pastry case we often say “If it’s white, it has dairy”. We use grass fed dairy when possible. Items that are nut free, made with coconut flour (which is actually a fruit): pumpkin muffins, blueberry muffins, chocolate cupcakes, vanilla cupcakes, double chocolate cupcakes, and our chocolate and vanilla celebration cakes. For those with egg allergies: Our granola, cookies, and vegan chocolate or vanilla cupcakes are egg/gluten/dairy and nut free.
Q: Does White Lion have any gluten-free items?
Answer: We are a certified Gluten Free facility. We specialize in high quality gluten free baked goods.
Q: Does White Lion Baking Company have anything that is sugar free?
Answer: All of our products are free of refined sugars. Everything is sweetened with organic honey or dates. There is evaporated cane juice in our Enjoy Life Chocolate (which is a well known chocolate for being allergen free) and there is sugar and soy lecithin that comes in the white chocolate we purchase.
Q: Does White Lion Baking Company have anything that is soy / peanut / genetically modified (GMO) free?
Answer: We use soy lecithin in our white chocolate (that’s only 4 products). We are a peanut free and GMO free facility.
Q: What is gluten?
Answer: Gluten is a grouping of proteins that exist in the endosperm of certain seeds and flowering plants. Grass seed gluten, such as in wheat, spelt, rye, and barley, tends to be the primary source of food sensitivities. While only 8% of the population is suspected of having the worst form of immune reaction to gluten, known as Celiac Disease, many more feel they benefit from limiting their exposure.
Gluten has little effect on flavor, but a big effect on texture. When breads rise, gluten (“glue” in Latin) allows the bread to stretch and rise, so crafting gluten-free pastries can be a challenge! At White Lion Baking Company, we’ve worked hard to create a product so amazing you’ll be left wondering if it’s actually gluten-free. We do not sell anything unless it could easily pass a taste test next to products with gluten and win on both flavor and texture.
Q: What flours do you use?
Answer: We create our own blends of flours for each product we make. These blends include almond, coconut, cashew, and tapioca. We do not use any bean flours or grain flours.
Q: Are you vegan?
Answer: No, we are not a vegan facility. We do offer a small handful of vegan options (if you’re a vegan that eats organic honey), such as grain free granola, dark chocolate walnut cookies, tropical cookies, cranberry walnut cookies, raisin and spice cookies, and egg free chocolate or vanilla cupcakes.

Answer: Our team will work closely with you to create custom cakes, cupcakes, favors, dessert tables and more. Please contact our events team for more information and to place a custom order.
Q: Does White Lion make wedding cakes?
