Frequently Asked Questions
Where is Melski’s located?
Melski’s is a homestead bakery, which means we do not have a customer-facing retail establishment. Everything is made to order by me, Melski, in my home kitchen. You'll be able to catch us in-person when we start to get into some farmer’s markets. In the meantime, you can place your orders right here on our website!
Please note that ordering now closes on Wednesdays, at 11:59pm, and pickups are on Saturdays. You may choose between picking up in Acton, MA from 10:00am to 11:00am or in Amherst, NH from 12:30pm to 1:30pm.
Be sure to check the Pickup Info page or our social media pages for any changes to the usual schedule, sample offerings, additional pop-up locations or farmer’s markets, and other special offers.
Can I find the goods in any retail stores?
Not yet, but hopefully in the future!
Do you offer delivery?
We do not offer delivery at this time, no.
Can you ship my order to me?
Not at this point, no, but we hope to be able to do this in the future!
What if I have an allergy?
Melski’s is a homestead vegan bakery. We never have any animal products in our kitchen, but aside from that, we cannot guarantee that cross-contamination will not occur with any other major allergens. Our brownies and gf mini oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are gluten-less, and are always made first thing on baking days. This is to avoid any close encounters with the wheat in the rest of our products.
If you have a severe allergy to wheat, peanuts, walnuts, soy, or any other ingredient listed in our products, we strongly (and sadly need to) advise that you do not order from us.
What if there’s inclement weather on my pick-up day?
The weather in New England can be unpredictable, amiright? Luckily our car handles the snow pretty well, but if for some reason we cannot get your order to you, you will either be refunded, or we will arrange for a different pick-up day and time as close to the original one as possible (likely Saturday later in the day or Sunday).
Is everything vegan?
It sure is! We do not have any animal products in our home kitchen and everything we make at Melski’s is vegan. This means you will not find any dairy, eggs, honey, or sugar processed with bone char in any of our products. And if you didn’t know that about sugar, now you do. And yes, even the dye we use in our red velvet cakes and frostings are vegan, as well as the sprinkles.
Why can’t I order one of everything?
Melski’s is a homestead bakery, with one part time baker who also happens to be the owner (that’s me!). Every item is made-to-order and we do not hold any baked goods in stock. That means that one cupcake purchased would still require six cupcakes baked! To sample a wider variety of items, we recommend that you try something new with each order that you place. Maybe even share those orders with your besties – if they’re lucky!
Do you make specialty cakes?
Yes, and we are hoping to add them as an option here on our website soon!
If you would like to order a specialty cake in one of the current cupcake flavors, shoot us an email here and we just might be able to accommodate your request.
