Gluten-free doesn’t have to mean taste-free

Standard

A new bakery and cafe opened up in Millis right after the new year.  The town was seriously lacking in lunch places, so this couldn’t have been a better addition to the town.

So I hit up the bakery today to scope out their cake/cupcake selection for my daughter’s birthday party.  Twist is gluten-free, peanut free, and dairy conscious (many items are dairy free).

There were so many yummy looking goodies in the case, it was hard to choose!  There was a sun butter and jelly, coconut, chocolate, and vanilla cupcakes.  And the chocolate raspberry torte looked decadent!

  • Vanilla Cupcake with Chocolate Frosting-The cake was a bit chewy and crunchy (like corn meal was used) for my taste but the frosting was dark and not overly sugary
  • Vanilla Cupcake with Coconut Jam, Vanilla Frosting, and Coconut Sprinkles-The vanilla frosting was light and fluffy.  The cake was chewy and a bit crunchy just like the other vanilla cake.  But the coconut jam was unexpected-sugary, sweet, but wasn’t over powered by the coconut flavor.
  • Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Frosting-MY FAVORITE!!  The cake was dense and moist but not chewy.  And the frosting was light sweet and fluffy!

This bakery is definitely on the list of possibilities.  And totally worth checking out if you are gluten-free!
