A Note About Our Ingredients
Here at Cake Hero, we feel strongly about using Fair Trade ingredients. "Fair Trade" means that the people who produce the delicious luxuries that we use to make things like cakes and cookies are paid a fair price for their products and are working in humane conditions. Vanilla, cocoa, coffee, and sugar are all crops that often come from depressed countries where larger corporations take advantage of farmers in order to drive costs down. Fair Trade practices help farmers earn a fair wage in good working conditions, ensure that the land they are working on is respected and not overworked, and guarantees that no child or forced labor was used in the creation of these kitchen staples.
We try to extend this way of thinking to our packaging when possible. Cake Hero makes an effort to use recycled cake boxes and parchment paper, and to package our cookies we use real cellophane bags, which are biodegradable!
Cake Hero treats are flavorful, not tooth-achingly sweet, and made with the best ingredients we can find. Whether it's a little sour cream to temper the sweetness of our vanilla cake, or a dash of coffee to take our chocolate cake to the next level, each cake recipe has something special that makes it unique and utterly delicious. Our cookies are rimmed in Maldon Salt and demerara sugar, to give them a tantalizing bit of crunch and saltiness. Yum!
