Feeding four-year-olds is hard enough, throw celiac disease into the mix and this becomes a very daunting task. We explore gluten free options at home and in the San Francisco Bay Area and put them up against the toughest critics around... my kids.


Happy Birthday Sam and Audrey... Thanks for gluten free cupcakes from TeaCake Bake Shop

We bought gluten free cupcakes at the TeaCake Bake Shop in Corte Madera for the twins to celebrate their fifth birthday at Giant's stadium. The cupcakes were a delicious gluten free almond cake. The wonderful thing about this store is drop-in cookie and cupcake decorating. They currently only have one kind of GF cupcake, but no GF cookies available. Audrey and Sam opted out of decorating their birthday cupcake in order to get to the stadium faster. The clerk was unsure if the fondant was gluten free so we added our own sprinkles. The shop gave us candles which was very kind. Then we were off to the Giant's stadium since the twins love the Coke slide. (The Giant's playground is open free to the public on weekends 10a-4p and everyday during the summer)

  1. We loved our gluten free cupcake! The flavor is Vanilla Almond and it has a Swiss meringue buttercream on top.

    I received a wonderful email from Agnes at teacake bake shop....
    "I am sorry our staff members were not able to tell you if the fondant we use is gluten free. We will address this and make sure all staff members are aware from now on. The type of fondant we use is called Satin Ice and according to the manufacturer's website, it is: gluten free, dairy free, nut free, contains no animal derived products (vegan) and is certified kosher. Thank you for the feedback and hope the twins had a great birthday!" Agnes

    Hope this update helps ...
