Frequently Asked Questions

Ingredients

Are all your products suitable for vegans?

Yes! Our products are perfect for someone following a plant-based or vegan diet! We do not use any dairy, eggs, or honey in our products. Additionally, we only use vegan sugar.

Please note, however, while the sprinkles we use on our sprinkled donuts are listed as vegan approved on the PETA website, the manufacturer defines them as 100% plant-based since that they do not use vegan sugar specifically.

Are your products organic? 

No. While we do utilize some organic ingredients, many are not. 

Do your products contain wheat? 

Yes. All of our products contain wheat flour.

Do you use soy based ingredients in your products?

No. We do not use any soy based ingredients in our products (including soy lecithin), however, soy is present in our kitchen at any given time.

Do your products contain tree nuts (including coconut)?

Yes. We use coconut milk and coconut oil in all our fresh baked donuts. Our fresh baked German Chocolate Cake and Maple Pecan donuts also contain pecans and cashews.

In all our donut mixes, we use powdered coconut milk. Our German Chocolate Cake donut mix also contains pecans. Some of our donut mixes also include coconut as a topping. 

Do your products contain apple?

Yes, all of our donuts and donut mixes contain apple. 

Do your products contain palm oil?

All of our fresh baked donuts except German Chocolate Cake and Maple Pecan contain palm oil in the icing. The palm oil is found in the dairy free butter we use for those particular donuts. Additionally, any of our donuts and donut mixes that contain rainbow sprinkles also contain palm oil. 

What is the shelf life of your mixes?

Because we do not add preservatives to our donut mixes, mixes should be used within 90 days of the production date. They can also be frozen if they have not been used within that time frame.

Hours of Operation/Pickup/Delivery/Shipping

What are your standard hours of operation?

All products must be pre-ordered online. Once fulfilled, orders can be picked up or delivered on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. Our standard delivery hours are 9am to 12pm. Pickup is also available from 8am to 9am. Evening pickup or delivery may also be available by request. 

We process donut mix shipments everyday except Sunday. All donut mix orders are shipped via USPS using 2 day priority mail.

How much is delivery within Denver?

We offer free delivery in Denver five days a week (closed Tuesdays and Thursdays) on orders over $30.00. Delivery may be available outside the regular delivery hours for larger orders as well. 

Do you deliver beyond Denver?

Yes. We can deliver outside of Denver on orders over $30 for a fee. Email us at info@squeakylittlewheel.com for more information on delivery outside of Denver.

I'm trying to place an order online but the date I'm interested in isn't showing on the delivery/pickup calendar.

There are two possible reasons for this. First, we only offer a set number of pickup and delivery slots per day. If the calendar is not allowing you to select a date, it is possible that we have reached our max for that date.

We also attend pop ups and maker events. We do not fill delivery/pickup orders on event days.

Do you ship your fresh baked donuts?

No, however we sell and ship our donut mixes which produce the same delicious fresh baked donuts. We currently only ship within Colorado. Flat rate shipping is $5.95.

I live locally. Can I place an order for donut mixes and pick them up?

Yes! If you would like to pick them up from our Cheesman Park neighborhood location (10th and Downing), simply select pickup and a preferred pickup time when you checkout.

Miscellaneous

Do you have to own a donut pan to make the mixes? 

No! Of course if you want a donut shape then yes but a standard muffin pan will do as well. A standard size muffin pan will yield 6-8 cupcake style donuts. Here in Denver, they are done in 20 minutes. Mixes can also be made in a standard loaf pan and yield 8 servings. Click here for more donut mix baking tips.

Do you still sell mini bundt cakes?

We no longer include our mini bundt cakes on the website, however, they are still available by special order. Please email info@squeakylittlewheel.com to inquire.

Cottage Foods Act

What is the Cottage Foods Act?

Squeaky Little Wheel Bakery, LLC operates under Colorado's Cottage Foods Act.

The Cottage Foods Act was designed to allow small food producers to sell to their community and neighbors within the state, directly from their homes.

All foods produced under the Cottage Foods Act must bear the same mandated label that reads:

"This product was produced in a home kitchen that is not subject to state licensure or inspection and that may also process common food allergens such as tree nuts, peanuts, eggs, soy, wheat, milk, fish, and crustacean shellfish. This product is not intended for resale."

Please note, as a 100% plant based kitchen, our kitchen never processes eggs, milk, fish, or crustacean shellfish, however, tree nuts, peanuts, soy, and wheat may be present at any given time.
