Cake Bases

Our Gluten-Free Cake Bases are formulated to mimic the great taste and quality of our popular Baker’s Request cake line. These bases create moist cakes with a tight crumb that not only taste great, but are also easy to decorate. They are offered in two flavors, white and extra dark devil’s food.

Creme Cake Bases

Dawn’s Gluten-Free Creme Cake Bases give you the same superior flavor, volume and texture of our renowned R&H® creme cake bases. They are versatile enough for muffins, loaf cakes, ring cakes and more — and they are excellent for suspending fruit and inclusions, which allows you to add your own special touches. The bases are offered in two flavors, vanilla and chocolate.

Brownie Base

Our Gluten-Free Brownie Base is formulated to deliver the same fantastic taste and texture of our famous R&H® Fudgie Brownie Mix. Just add eggs, oil and water to create a batter that is pourable, self-leveling and perfect for suspending nuts and other ingredients. This brownie base makes rich, fudgy brownies your customers will love.

Cookie Base

Dawn’s Gluten-Free Cookie Base is a flexible formula designed to make a wide variety of gluten-free cookies, from classics like chocolate chip and peanut butter, to your bakery’s signature creations.

Cake Donut Base

Our Gluten-Free Vanilla Cake Donut Base provides the exceptional flavor, texture and performance to match our Majestic® Cake Donuts. Make both traditional and signature creations with great volume, a perfect star center, soft crumb and a thin golden crust.
