responsibility & advocacy

4 Wishes Cakery is committed to conservation in everything we do.  Waste management and recycling are a major part of daily life in our kitchen. We use plant based products for cleaning and compostable boxes (made from sustainable lumber) to carry your tasty treats. Did you notice that our business cards are made from recycled paper?

By using organic and local food products, our business supports sustainable agriculture. We deliver on foot or by public transport whenever possible. Some efforts also coincide with our cruelty free pledge. Those plant based cleaners weren’t tested on animals and the organic sugars are always vegan!  You can be certain that even our eggs come from local cage free hens.

Social Awareness is the 4th wish of 4 Wishes Cakery.  A portion of your sale will be donated to the charity of your choice from the list below!

*Due to popular demand two new choices have been added to the list: The ACLU & Planned Parenthood*
