Q: What can I use for a dairy free margarine?
A: Fleischmann’s™ Unsalted Margarine is a dairy free margarine. Earth Balance™ is another dairy free alternative found in many natural grocery stores. Always check with the manufacturer in case of any ingredient changes or new formulations.

Q: Can you substitute oil for margarine in all of the mixes?
A: Yes, you may substitute oil for margarine for our cake and cookie mixes. The amounts will still stay the same.

Q: Why do you state to roll the cookie dough into balls before placing onto a cookie sheet?
A: Forming round balls with the dough creates a nice round shaped and ensures that the cookie will not fall flat.

Q: How many mixes will I need to create a double layer cake or a large sheet cake?
A: You will need two mixes to create a double layer cake or one 9X12 sheet cake. You may even want to have chocolate for one layer and vanilla for a second layer!

Q: How should I store my Cherrybrook Kitchen goodies?
A: You should let them cool completely and then place them in an airtight container. They will last up to a week long!

Q: Why doesn’t the cookie dough look or feel the same as ordinary cookie dough?
A: This is no ordinary cookie! The dough will have a sheen to it and a bit of a crumbly texture but don’t despair delicious, decadent cookies are only 8 minutes away. Magic!

Q: Are your products Vegan?
A: Because all of our mixes are dairy and egg free, they are the perfect treat for Vegan’s! Our frosting contains confectionery sugar, so whether or not they can be considered vegan is subjective.

Q: Are your products Kosher?
A: Yes, all of our products are Kosher certified with the OU Symbol. Some of our older boxes may still contain our Tablet K symbol.

Q: What is the shelf life of your products?
A: Our products have a shelf life of 12-18 months. An embossed Julian Code on the bottom of each box gives you the date the product was originally produced.


Q: Are your products soy free?
A: Currently, any of our products that contain Chocolate chips do contain soy lecithin such as our Original Chocolate Cake, Original and Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie and Original and Gluten Free Brownie mixes. All our other mixes are soy free including our Wheat Free, Gluten Free Chocolate Cake. Our Gluten Free Chocolate Cake Mix packaging features The name “Gluten Free Dreams” in a purple “swish” to indicate that it is gluten and wheat free.

Q: Are your mixes Kosher?
A: Yes, all of our mixes are certified Kosher by the Orthodox Union.

Q: Do your products contain wheat or gluten?
Some of Cherrybrook Kitchen’s cake and cookie mixes contain wheat and gluten. However, our chocolate and vanilla frostings as well as our new gluten free Chocolate Cake, Chocolate Chip Cookie and Sugar Cookie do not.

Q: Are your products free of tree nuts as well as peanuts?
A: Yes, all of our products and our manufacturing facility are completely free of all nuts.

Q: Do your products contain corn?
Currently, our chocolate frosting and vanilla frosting contain cornstarch.

Q: Where can I go to find out more information about food allergies?
The Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis (FAAN) is a wonderful site to learn more about food allergies.

Q: Does Patsy have food allergies?
A: Yes, I do. I developed food allergies three years ago to dairy, egg and tree nuts. I have struggled with the loss of my favorite foods, changes in my lifestyle and even anaphylactic reactions. I started Cherrybrook Kitchen because I wanted to bring sweet delicious tastes and fun into the world of those with allergies. Not only am I passionate about issues surrounding food allergies but I am also passionate about dessert!

Q: How many people are affected by food allergies today?
Currently 11 million Americans have food allergies and 9 million are specifically allergic to peanuts, dairy or eggs that Cherrybrook Kitchen cheerfully omits.
