For Your Information
What is Gluten Free?
Gluten free means a product manufactured without Wheat and Gluten. This also indicates that the product will not contain rye, certain oats, barley or triticale as these also contain gluten. Gluten free also it implies that a product is manufactured in a gluten free environment.
What is Gluten Free For?
Gluten free is for anyone with Celiac Disease or has a physical reaction to eating products containing wheat,rye, barely, and even some oats. These include many commercially processed and refined foods that naturally do not contain gluten like chocolate bars, shredded coconut, cereals, frozen French fries, and hamburgers.
What Is Celiac Disease?
Celiac is a disease in which the cells of the small bowel (intestine) get damaged due to certain foods, healthy cells are damaged and reduced in number, which leads to all sorts of deficiencies in vitamins, iron, folic acid and calcium. Those with Celiac disease have a great deal of sensitivity to products containing gluten (the natural protein found in wheat, rye, barley, triticale, and some processed oats), which reacts within the small bowel lining, damaging it, and causing digestive problems. This causes the loss of the tiny, finger like projections, called villi, which line the inside of normal bowels. The cells on normal villi are specialized so that they can break down and absorb nutrients in food, but with celiac they cannot absorb them properly.
It is imperative that those with gluten intolerance or celiac disease avoid foods containing these ingredients. I suffer from gluten intolerance so I know the constant question of whether or not to eat something from a facility that is not gluten free friendly. Since baked goods are an essential, but moderate, part of many diets I have come up with signature recipes that are not only gluten free, but free from harmful preservatives, artificial flavors, artificial colors, refined foods, processed foods, and dairy. While we are not vegan only (we use eggs), many of our products can be adapted to fit the vegan lifestyle as well. It is our mission for all to be able to enjoy naturally sweet treats no matter what their diet need.
What Are You Doing To Ensure The Risk Of Cross Contamination?
While our gluten free desserts are produced in a facility that produces wheat products, great care is taken to ensure that no cross contamination occurs. We only use designated areas to prepare baked goods and use tools, utensils, pans, and equipment just for our gluten free products. We never prepare gluten free baked goods at the same times as other items.
Some Cake Fun
Cake is a form of bread or bread-like food. In its modern forms, it is typically a sweet baked dessert. In its oldest forms, cakes were normally fried breads or cheesecakes, and normally had a disk shape.
Determining whether a given food should be classified as bread, cake, or pastry can be difficult.
Modern cake, especially layer cakes, normally contain a flour, sugar, eggs, and butter or oil, with some varieties also requiring liquid (typically milk or water) and leavening agents (such as yeast or baking powder).
Flavorful ingredients like fruit purees, nuts, dried or candied fruit, or extracts are often added, and numerous substitutions for the primary ingredients are possible.
Cakes are often filled with fruit preserves or dessert sauces (like pastry cream), iced with buttercream or other icings, and decorated with marzipan, piped borders or candied fruit.
Cake is often the dessert of choice for meals at ceremonial occasions, particularly weddings, anniversaries, and birthdays.
