Are all Karma Baker products vegan & plant-based?

Where does Karma Baker ship baked goods?
We offer nationwide shipping in the USA. Sorry Canada, but we are working on it! We ship more than we hand out these days. We have become a very popular bakery in the US. About 80% of our items are shipped to our amazing customers within the USA. We send multi-item Holiday and KarmaBoxes, whole birthday cakes and the super-popular cupcake jars!
View our shipping page or go to our shop page and select “NATIONWIDE SHIPPING”.
How do I store my items and what is the shelf life?
Remember that fridges dry food out day by day and freezers halt freshness in its tracks!
Our items don’t go bad or get moldy because they don’t have dairy or eggs. They get dry like traditional items if they sit around too long. Our items are “best by” when you get them! They taste the best at room temperature, except for cold-style items like cream cakes and tarts.
Cookies, donuts, brownies and cupcakes (jars) are best before 2 weeks and can be stored in the freezer for up to 4 months.
In-bakery items like cream tarts and desserts which all require refrigeration, (so they don’t get melty and gross) stay fresh in the fridge for 7 -10 days and up to 4 months in the freezer.
Cakes are best stored in the fridge for only a couple of days and up to 1 month in the freezer (cakes should be removed from the fridge 4 hours before serving). We always recommend freezing if you aren’t going to eat it right away.
At home Arek and I (Celine, here) like to keep stuff frozen and not let the fridge have a chance to dry it out. We then pull it out a bit before we eat it. We’ve kept deserts frozen for longer than a year and it was still pretty fabulous.
Why do you say you're not allergy-friendly?
While we don’t use some ingredients that are considered allergens, like dairy, eggs and wheat, we do use nuts and soy as well as other allergens. We bake too many items a day, standing way too close to each other to be able to contain all allergens. We know we cannot guarantee there won’t be batter splatter or that the oven wont get a nut stuck in the convection fan on a batch of walnut brownies and spit it back out while we bake vanilla cakes.
Please don’t take chances with your allergies or ask us to.
Do you process nuts and peanuts?
Yes, we sure do!
If you are severely allergic, we do not recommend eating our products.
What do you make that is sugar-free?
We make sugar-free items upon request and to order. We use coconut nectar in our cake items and xylitol and stevia as sweeteners in our sugar-free frosting. In general, we are always aiming for amazing taste and texture with our products, if you want sugar free items, don’t judge us on them. They are more of a courtesy than a specialty. Having said that, our SF frosting kicks ass!
Do you make Keto or Paleo items?
No, we do not.
What kind of sugar does Karma Baker use?
We use organic vegan sugar which is a minimally processed evaporated cane juice. It has the same grams of sugar as regular sugar but is not processed with bone char or chemicals and so, is vegan.
Does Karma Baker deliver locally?
Yes, we deliver to a limited range within and around Ventura and Los Angeles counties; please call the bakery to schedule a delivery. The delivery fee ranges from $20-$50.
Do you have other locations?
We currently have only one full service bakery, located in Westlake Village. We make everything there and ship to the entire USA.
Is Karma Baker kosher?
Yes, we are certified kosher under Rabbi Markel’s KCA Orthodox kosher certification. You can view our certificate here.
