How do I care for my Gür Sweets cupcakes and cakes?

Because our cupcakes and cakes are all natural, they’re preservative free. Serve them at room temperature on the date of purchase to enjoy them at peak freshness. To retain their moistness, avoid placing your purchase in the refrigerator.

If you plan to keep your sweet treats for more than two days, freeze them—either in an airtight container or in their bakery box, wrapped in plastic. They’ll keep frozen for up to a week. Before serving, allow them to defrost two to three hours at room temperature.

Do Gür Sweets’ products contain trans fats?

Absolutely not! We use only top-quality ingredients—Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla, imported Belgian chocolate, Spanish saffron, Indian cardamom, fresh local milk, and sweet cream butter. All Gur Sweets products are baked from scratch daily by hand in small batches. They are also hand-frosted and decorated.

Do Gür Sweets’ desserts contain dairy/sugar/flour/nuts?

Although we offer vegan versions of our cupcakes and cakes, Gür Sweets products are routinely made with premium dairy. Unless specified, our cupcakes do not contain whole nuts, but they are made with flour, dairy, and sugar. Some also contain peanut and walnut pieces. Gür Sweets’ ethnic desserts contain whole nuts.

If I have nut allergies or other food allergies, can I eat Gür Sweets’ products?

All of our baked goods are made from scratch in the same small bakery from eggs, milk, butter, cream, and flour. Though nuts are not an ingredient in every recipe, trace amounts may be found in any of our desserts. If you have nut allergies, we recommend that you refrain from eating our products.

Are Gür Sweets’ products gluten and dairy free?

The short answer? No. Our chefs routinely use eggs, butter, cream, and flour in all of our baked goods. We do, however, take custom orders.
