I have been using the brand "CAKE MATE for about 14 years. The main reason I love this specific brand, is because, I have a 14 years old Niece who has a Deadly Allergy to Peanuts & Tree Nuts. Finding this out is Heart Breaking, especially because I was a Chef for many years. I loved making her goodies, like Cupcakes, Cookies & even some Birthday Cakes. Please don't get me wrong, I love Wilton products. I used them in the professional world for years, but for my family, after doing research. I found out Cake Mate is the only brand I know of, that does not have Peanuts or Tree Nuts in them, along with the fact they don't process any of their decorations on machinery that had Peanuts or Tree Nuts on them. BIG PLUS FOR ME. I know they are safe. FYI, I do ALWAYS DOUBLE CHECK to just make sure they haven't changed the Labels. Better safe than sorry!
