Sweet Impressions is open for business in Winnipeg.

Their stuff looks amazing - (although I haven't tried itasting it yet). . . Everything is peanut and nut free (I have confirmed with the owners). They can deliver cookes across Canada. They can also do egg & dairy free on special orders.

I'll be going by next Saturday to check it out.

Do they use dried egg powder or whole eggs when baking?

The reason I ask is if they use dried egg powder, it becomes airborn and is very difficult to avoid the cross contamination.

Yes, I've run into the egg powder scenario before. I'll be asking that when I visit on Saturday. I'll be sure to post my findings.

Went back yesterday and they did have some that were safe for me to try.

I was disappointed in the value for the cost - $2.85 ea. I thought that was for special order special decoration cupcakes - the ones I got were just plain chocolate with chocolate iciing as they don't have an egg free cookie decoration yet and the cost was still the same - ouch!

They do taste good and if someone is looking for a peanut/nut free alternative and is not comfortable baking their own or really wants something that is beautifully presented, I think this would be a good place for them to go.

Their cookies are stunningly beautiful. There is no way I could make anything that pretty . . . They're working on egg free ones but don't have them ready yet. I'll probably give them a try when they have one that is safe, but they would definately be reserved for special occasions.

Good info to have. I had heard about this bakery, but hadn't yet investigated. Thanks for sharing what you learned! : )
