Mr Kipling cakes are at their best when eaten within their use by date and therefore we do not recommend freezing.
We know our cakes are exceedingly good and therefore we get a lot of requests for products or sponsorship opportunities. Unfortunately, on most occasions we aren’t able to help due to the high numbers of requests but we commit to reviewing every request separately and will help where we can. If you have a request for us, please use the form in the Contact Us section of this site detailing your request.
Mr. Kipling produced a range of cakes which include nuts are part of their ingredients. We include a ‘May Contain Nuts’ statement on our wider range of Mr. Kipling Cakes as we cannot guarantee the absence of nuts owing to our product range and manufacturing methods.
This advice, covers, almonds, walnuts and pecans which we use as ingredients in Mr. Kipling and other brands. Whilst we strictly control the use and segregation of these nuts within our bakeries, we still believe it appropriate to communicate the use of these nuts to our consumers.
Furthermore, the warning we use extends to cover ‘other’ tree nuts namely hazelnuts, cashews, Brazil nuts, pistachio nuts and Macadamia (or Queensland nuts). We are unable to differentiate the risk to any specific nut.
Our knowledge of the supply chain and how these nuts are harvested, processed and traded means that these nuts may come into contact with other tree nuts – the risk will vary according to the country of origin, time of harvest, segregation and the like and could change during the year.
We can confirm that we do not use peanuts as an ingredient in our Mr. Kipling Cakes and they are also baked on sites that do not handle peanuts.
As you may know, tree nuts are a different allergen to peanuts. We have a number of cakes which contain nuts as an ingredient, and we also display a ‘May Contain Nuts’ statement on our packaging so that consumers can make an informed choice.

I would like to reassure you that 100% of the palm oil we source is certified by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), the leading independent certifying body. All our palm oil suppliers also have policies which covers No Deforestation, No Peat, No Exploitation of Labour, and these have been in place for several years before this became the new RSPO standard in late 2019. Consequently, this means that the palm oil we use only comes from certified sustainable sources, which avoid damaging the tropical rainforests and biodiversity of Southeast Asia.
With that being said, I expect you are wondering why we cannot just stop using palm oil – sustainable or not. This is a commonly asked question and one I hope to answer below.
Replacing palm oil with other types of vegetable oil would require much larger amounts of land to grow, since palm trees produce 4-10 times more oil than other crops per unit of cultivated land. This would result in serious environmental damage, with the risk that more forests would need to be converted into agricultural land.
Palm oil also plays a vital role in the reduction of poverty in areas where palm is grown and stopping the production of palm oil altogether would impact the 4.5 million families across Malaysia and Indonesia who rely on the industry to feed their families.
So, as you can see, it's not as simple as replacing or eliminating palm oil but we do recognise the need to source it responsibly, hence our work to source only RSPO certified palm oil.

Where products have a relatively short shelf life (under 3 months), it is sufficient under the food regulations to state just the day and month in the "Best Before" panel.
