decided to take my four year old out for a little peanut and nut free treat
since he wasn’t starting school until tomorrow.
We headed over to The Bake Station in Southfield, MI, which is about 30
minutes from our house.
When we got there, I was happy to see the Nut Free illuminated sign in the
window. I want to point out that this
place is a peanut and nut free bakery, but for some reason a lot of places and
manufactures lump the two together and only label peanut or nut free. I personally think that they should be
labeled separately, because they are totally different allergies. Some kids are allergic to peanuts and not nuts
and vice versa. It would just make
everyone’s lives so much easier if all places would do this. Other than that detail, I was pleased with
the place. The bakery isn’t anything
fancy and it has that old school bakery look to it, but they are with the times
by having a peanut and nut free establishment.
There aren’t any tables or chairs to enjoy your treat and there are no
public restrooms. There was a wide
variety of baked goods ranging from breads, cakes, doughnuts, pastries,
brownies and cookies.
his little brother. They had cupcakes
for boys and girls. My boys are into
superheroes so of course he picked the one with Spider Man, Super Man, Thor and
Incredible Hulk. His only complaint was
that they didn’t have Batman on the cupcakes.
But other than that, I think he was very happy with his selection.
he tried one, it wasn’t peanut and nut free.
Needless to say, that wasn’t a good experience for him. I assured him that he would like it and that
he should try it. On the way to our next
stop, I allowed my son to eat a doughnut and he enjoyed it. Even though the place is a peanut and nut
free bakery, I still found myself looking back at my son making sure an
allergic reaction wasn’t creeping up. I
guess this is out of habit and will most likely never change.
piece. The doughnuts are $1.00 a
piece. They also have great birthday
cakes for $18.95.
