Frequently Asked Questions


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 use granulated beet sugar and organic powdered sugar, both of which are naturally vegan.

Please note that while the rainbow 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 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.

A complete list of ingredients can be found on each product page.

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. We do not recommend any of our products to people with serious soy allergies.

A complete list of ingredients can be found on each product mix page.

Do your products contain tree nuts (including coconut)?

Yes. We use powdered coconut milk in all of our mixes. Our German Chocolate Cake donut mix also contains pecans. Some of our donut mixes also include coconut as a topping. 

Due to the likelihood of cross contamination during production, we do not recommend any of our products to people with serious nut allergies.

A complete list of ingredients can be found on each product page.

Do your products contain palm oil?

Any of our donut mixes that contain rainbow sprinkles contain RSPO Sustainable Certified palm oil. Our chocolate sprinkles also contain palm oil.

A complete list of ingredients can be found on each product page.

Do you use heat treated flour?

No. We use a high quality all purpose flour that is not heat treated. As such, and in accordance with FDA recommendations, we do not recommend that you consume uncooked batter.

Hours of Operation/Pick Up/Delivery/Shipping

What are your standard hours of operation? 

Donut mix orders are processed and shipped the day they are received (Sundays excluded). Donut mixes are shipped via USPS using 1 and 2 day priority mail.

UPDATE: We have extended our pickup hours during the COVID-19 period. Our current pickup hours are Monday through Sunday, 8am to 5:30pm Monday through Friday and 9am to 12pm on Saturday and Sunday. These hours will remain in affect until further notice.


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

Yes! If you would like to pick up your order from our Cheesman Park neighborhood location, simply select pickup at checkout.

Is it possible to pick up donut mixes today?

Yes! Please anticipate a two hour delay between ordering and pickup. We will confirm pickup time by email.


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 cupcakes. One box of mix can also be made in a standard loaf pan or a 6" cake pan (6-8 servings). For more pan suggestions and baking times, click here.

Is all of your packaging sustainable?

We have invested a good deal of time seeking out the most eco-friendly packaging options available. Our inner bags with labels are 100% compostable (commercial facility). Our mix boxes are made of 100% recycled content and can be recycled, label and all.

When we ship mixes, we do not purchase any packing paper/filler and instead, reuse anything that we receive when we order ingredients for our mixes. We ship via USPS priority mail using their recyclable boxes and our packaging tape is 100% recyclable.

That being said, there is one piece of packaging that does not currently meet our eco-friendly standards. The direction cards, while recyclable, are not as eco-friendly as we would like. We will continue to seek alternatives and hope to have a better option in the near future.

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.
