Terrific Things - New Toy: Girl Gourmet Cake Bakery

Here are some quotes from the press release, "JAKKS Pacific Secures Duff Goldman from Ace of Cakes for Girl Gourmet® Cake Bakery Line":

"Duff will be featured on JAKKS’ new Girl Gourmet® Cake Bakery product line. JAKKS continues to innovate in the food play category with the Girl Gourmet™ Cake Bakery, the sweet sequel to the award-winning Girl Gourmet Cupcake Maker, which was nominated for the Activity Toy of the Year Award. With the Girl Gourmet Cake Bakery young chefs can create elaborate mini 2-tiered fondant cakes after baking them for just 30 seconds in the microwave."

"The Girl Gourmet Cake Bakery ingredients are gluten and wheat-free, trans-fat free, and are produced in a nut-free facility in the U.S. Many children who suffer from Celiac and nut allergies are now able to safely participate in the art of baking with Girl Gourmet. JAKKS is expected to launch the Girl Gourmet Cake Bakery product line at major retailers nationwide in the Fall. For more information on the entire Girl Gourmet line, visit www.mygirlgourmet.com."

Please note that it is not manufactured in a dedicated gluten free facility, so I recommend contacting the company to evaluate the risk of cross contamination. Ingredients for the other Girl Gourmet products currently available can be viewed on their website. It appears that some of them do not contain gluten. It is wonderful and innovative that this product is available for kids with Celiac Disease!
