Gelatin in cakes

Is it safe to assume there is always animal gelatin in pies like cheesecakes etc?

there are cheesecakes without gelatin. I think of the non baked ones with gelatin and baked ones just cream cheese sugar and egg
You do have assume gelatins' in everything though!
I used to to a fan of Stride gum - then they discontinued my flavors. I browsed the stupid gum aisle without thinking about ingredients and got a Trident that has gelatin! It was the layered watermelon dragon fruit. Sounds good too

You can check the ingredients list on the box. Or, if you're at a bakery, you can ask.

I never heard that gelatin was in cakes but if you bake them at home you can check the ingridents or just bake from scratch.

I prefer to stay away from gelatin as well. Most of the time whenever I purchase a product which I think contains gelatin , I check ingredient for sure and only then purchase it.
