about the ingredients

While the specific formulas used to create babycakes products are under lock and key, the following are ingredients used in all of the products. I never use water or filler liquids and I always try to purchase organic or fair-trade whenever available, as well as purchasing from smaller distributors locally.

Please don't ask for my formulas... I've spent over 2 years perfecting my babycakes!
