Welcome to My Gluten Free Bakery, LLC.
It is with great sadness that I announce the closing of My Gluten Free Bakery. Due to a drop in business over the past few months and an increase in overhead, I can no longer afford to keep it open, my last day being April 30, 2011.
Needless to say, this has been a very difficult decision to make, but there comes a time when I have to think with my head and not my heart.
Providing baked goods to those with Celiac Disease and other food intolerances has brought me much joy and I have made many friends in the process.
I would like to continue baking some gluten-free celebration cakes, etc. for customers by using another facility's certified kitchen and as soon as the dust settles, I will begin checking with various places for that purpose. I plan on using my equipment (mixer and pans) and only their oven so there is no chance of cross-contamination.
Various people in the community (perhaps outside of the City limits) bake cakes and/or cupcakes out of their home without having to deal with City Code and Ordinances. However, for me to bake out of my home located within the City limits, as a “catering/delivery business,” the City would require that I install a separate kitchen in my home that meets City Code requirements and I simply cannot afford to do this.
I will maintain my website for the time-being. Anyone wishing to contact me can do so by either sending an e-mail or calling my cell phone at 573-680-3337.
I wish the best to all of you and thank those who have supported my bakery.
My Gluten Free Bakery came to be a reality because of my father who died July 2008 at age 88. He was diagnosed with Celiac (then called Sprue Disease) in 1984. I developed Celiac's in December 2007.
I have always loved to bake and decorate specialty cakes. After research and contacting the area support groups, I thought "I should start a gluten-free bakery as a service for the community." I decided to open a "DEDICATED" gluten-free bakery to help all of those, like me, who cannot eat regular gluten products.
I offer various breads, cheesecakes, white cake, marble cake, etc. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to offer fresh-baked breakfast pastries, for daily purchases as that of a donut shop.
My products are mostly by "special order". Because of the fact that I offer such a wide variety of baked goods, it is impossible to keep everything "on hand" due to the various needs of the customer. In addition, I strive to provide the customer's order as freshly baked as possible, rather than baking ahead and keeping it in the freezer for a lengthy period of time.
