Why can't I find my favorite flavor of Cake & Pastry Filling or Pie Fillings?
You may have noticed over the years that some of your favorite flavors are no longer found on store shelves. Over time, we had to make the tough decisions to discontinue our line of Baker Natural Pie Fillings, select flavors of Solo Cake & Pastry Fillings and select flavors of Baker Cake & Pastry Fillings. Unfortunately, we do not plan to produce these items again.
