Gluten Free Cutie
We are a family owned business dedicated to the Gluten Free & Allergen Aware community. Over 6 years ago my husband and I decided to open up a Gluten Free & Allergen Friendly Bakery and we named it after our daughter Savanna.. Our little Gluten Free Cutie.
Savanna, my daughter, is the inspiration to the start of this business. My daughter has allergies to gluten, dairy, and artificial dyes. As an infant my daughter had horrible stomach aches, erratic behavior, and developmental delays. I knew something was wrong. She had sleeping problems as well. She had many developmental delays, communication and sensory problems. After tons of research and talking with a family member who has a child with autism, we decided to take her off gluten and dairy. After 2 weeks of withdrawals and cleaning her system from the toxins, we started to see a calmer child. After many months from being off dairy and gluten she was able put together 3 word phrases “I love you” for the first time, she was calmer, the obsessive crying began to ease, sleeping better through the night, and sensory problems began to fade.
I created Gluten Free Cutie Bakery especially for children with food allergies to have a safe place to come and experience the joys of picking out a special treat. When my daughter tried one of my gluten free cake pops for the first time, it brought tears to my eyes to see her enjoy something that was cute and delicious but also wasn’t going to give her a stomach ache. I was also tired of going to birthday parties with my daughter and not having anything fun for her to eat while everyone else is enjoying their Princess Cake. I know many can relate to this.
With the rise of Autism, Celiac Disease, and Gluten Intolerance there are more and more people out there who don’t get to enjoy the everyday treats. This is why I opened up Gluten Free Cutie so people with food allergies will have a wide variety of desserts to choose from.
