National Celiac Awareness Day

Find out more about our gluten free cakes and brownies

Living with a gluten allergy or gluten intolerance, or even choosing not to eat gluten can come with its challenges when it comes to food. National Celiac Awareness Day is a chance to learn about what being diagnosed with Celiac Disease means, and perhaps encourage some to try a gluten free diet. The day is observed on the 13th of September 2021.

Gluten free products are becoming more readily available, which is great! Sometimes however you may feel a bit let down with the quality, which is what we found when we were trying some supermarket bought gluten free cakes. But that set us on a mission, to create a range of gluten free cakes that taste just as good as our standard cake range. We have managed to achieve this, with many customers leaving us reviews to say they couldn’t tell the difference between our gluten free cakes and a standard cake.

So, we wanted to show you more about what options are available in our gluten free range of products.

Gluten Free Cakes

Gluten Free Victoria Sponge Cake – This timeless flavour is perfect for any celebration. Free range eggs, gluten free flour mix, ground almonds and natural vanilla flavouring create a wonderfully light gluten free vanilla sponge.

Two layers of gluten free chocolate and caramel marbled sponge are sandwiched together with a layer of chocolate flavoured buttercream, and a layer of delicious caramel buttercream on top of it. It is finished off with more chocolate buttercream on top, a gorgeous drizzle of chocolate, and a sprinkle of crushed salted butter caramel pieces.
