Coeliac Awareness Week

More about gluten free cakes

The trickiest things about being a coeliac is knowing what you can or can’t eat. You need to be extremely careful, because even the smallest bit of gluten can make you extremely ill when you have coeliac disease. This can sometimes mean having to miss out on meals or food you enjoy, which can’t be fun.

It’s becoming easier, as there are more and more food producers who specialise in gluten free products. Restaurants are also increasing gluten free options as well. But you still have to be careful, because there’s sometimes the risk of cross contamination when food that contains gluten is prepared in the same vicinity as gluten free food.

The best way to know usually is when food items have accreditations such as from the gluten free accreditation from Coeliac UK. This will give you more confidence when you are eating food, and can worry less about the possibility of being ill after eating them.

We are constantly working to make it possible for everyone to enjoy a cake on their birthday and other celebrations. As you know, we have a great range of gluten free cakes, and we now have a separate area when our gluten free cakes are mixed, baked and built. So, we are in the process of getting a gluten free accreditation so that you can be confident that our gluten free cakes are gluten free and you’ll be able to enjoy them with your family on special occasions.

We have had some wonderful comments from customers who have ordered our gluten free cakes, with many commenting that if they hadn’t have known it was a gluten free cake, they would have thought it was a standard cake. This is because we don’t think anyone should have to compromise when it comes to cake.

Many gluten free cakes that you buy from supermarkets are dry, crumbly and not overly enjoyable to eat. So, we spent a long time getting our gluten free cakes right – they are important to mark events such as milestone birthdays after all! And, we wanted to make sure you don’t have to settle when it comes to flavours, so we create gluten free versions of many of our cake flavours. This means that you’ll be able to get your favourite flavour and have a fabulous gluten free birthday cake, or a cake for other celebrations.
