Since 2009, my ability to stop at a coffee shop for a latte AND cupcake came to an abrupt halt. Without fail I am asked “Do you want a scone or cheesecake with your drink?” Of course I do! However, I’d rather not have excruciating tummy pains- so I pass.
Doughnut fix? Watch out Qwik Trip!
Cheesecake? Yes Starbucks… Don’t mind if I do!
Apple pie? Super Target- Here I come!!
Oh, how I miss those days. (Well, minus the belly-ache and pains that accompanied them) Celiac disease threw me for a loop… Luckily- my inability to quickly satiate my sweet tooth with some sort of serious sweet lead me to my newest (and what I believe will continue to be a life-long) passion.
I have to admit, gluten free baking is a monster! It’s my newest fickle friend. However, I have taken the challenge head on! Thank goodness I have wonderful friends, colleagues, family, and a supportive boyfriend that have helped me create serious sweets that are amazingly delicious…. And guess what? I’ve been able to trick those “normal” gluten eaters into eating (and loving) gluten-free food without them knowing it!
I began by making a layered cake and 2 dozen cupcakes for my friend’s daughter’s 1st birthday party… Success! And the rest is history.
My goal is to create serious sweets for you and yours…. Gluten free of course- but noone needs to know! Well, unless that is what someone’s tummy needs- then go ahead and boast that these treats are safe!
You want some serious sweets? I’m your woman.
