Customer Comments

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making your items both gluten free and vegan!!! I can easily find an item to cover one of those issues (GF -or- vegan), but to find something that is both is horrifically rare and usually not tasty. Your bakery items saved me from that, thank you! You guys rock!”

“I am thrilled to have found your delicious, gluten free brownies in my natural foods grocery and through that, also found your website featuring mouthwatering treats that, until now, have not been available to celiac sufferers.  Your biscotti are every bit as delicious as the brownies, which are the best I have ever had, even when compared to those made with wheat flour.  Thank you for satisfying the taste buds of those who must avoid wheat products. Your products are magnificent!”  Carla from Knoxville TN

“I recently purchased one of your mini-cakes at Earth Fare in Charlotte. I recently had to change my diet to gluten-free, dairy-free due to nursing my son who has sensitivities to both. What I have missed most is the ability to have a regular dessert. The moist chocolate cake I had is amazing. My husband tried it and he thought so too. Thank you so much for your wonderful creation, it may very well have saved my sanity during a difficult transition time, as foolish as that sounds.”

“Once again I sit, sipping my daily coffee and enjoying a Royal Orange Chai cake. Thanks so much for making such wonderful foods that are also as healthy as desserts can get.  – Swarm Dunsmore, Asheville 

Here is a customer email that makes baking in this hot weather SO worth it!:
“THANK YOU!!! I am a dessert-aholic, so when I found out two years ago that I have Celiac Disease and am allergic to milk, I was a bit depressed…it has been difficult to find yummy desserts that I can trust to be gluten and dairy free.

I was at Earthfare in Huntsville, AL this past weekend and immediately noticed a case containing some of your desserts. I was more than thrilled and bought some of the chocolate cupcakes and the ginger cake. They were both delicious and I savored every single bite!”

One of our favorite Tweets about our Very Vanilla Cake…“Giiiiiiirl it was UH-MAY-ZING.”

We love happy customers – “My girlfriend just got the Valentine’s Chocolate Box I ordered for her and she loves it. She recently found out she’s gluten intolerant and that box of chocolate made her realize it isn’t going to be completely terrible. It’s a great gift idea and the quality of the product was outstanding, so thank you very much for doing what you do. I imagine i will be ordering your products again soon.”

“The cake you made for us was so amazing! We mention how amazing it was very often. I can’t wait until my birthday to get another one! Thank you so much!”  – Alisa R.

    I tried your chocolate cupcake and it was delicious!!! I eat GF and am intolerant of multiple foods including dairy and egg so what a treat for me! I hope one day you will consider seeking out peanut-free flours/ingredients so that my son with celiac disease and a peanut allergy can enjoy them, too. Thank you!

      Feel free to call the bakery and we can go over the ingredients we use for specific items. We don’t use nuts in the bakery, but one of our flour suppliers has a disclaimer on their packaging about tree nuts. 828-669-8787. Thank you!

    Finding your biscotti at the Coop here in Knoxville was like finding a gem! On top of that you pull it off gluten-free, which is so impressive. Viva Dolce di Maria!
