At a walmart, in/near the bakery section, we found a birthday cake with the peanut-free symbol. Inside the box is a tube of icing to write the name on the cake. ($18) Also found a round dirt cake with worms ($11). Was great to find since at last minute we had to arrange a birthday party.

grandson wanted the worm cake. It was good. Nice and fresh, and the icing is not that sickly sweet stuff.

They also sell Donuts that are labelled nut free and a black forest cake.

I'll have to keep an eye out for the black forest cake.

We have now tried about three of the pf cakes, including the Black Forest. All were yummy!

They are small, but you only need a small piece because they are rich. Not too expensive either.

We've tried a couple of their cakes (safely ) also. :banana I 've seen large cakes at Walmart from the same bakery but they are usually decorated with gummy worms etc. so not safe for our house. LOVE options!

Are they free of tree nuts as well? I have looked in Winnipeg a few times but never found them.

I think the symbol is peanut free. according to the website for CAC (Certified Allergen Control) there isn't a test to verify for nuts, so most companies do not label "nut free".

But, there are no nuts listed as ingredients, and no may contain warning.
