To sell baked goods is great. To sell gluten free baked goods to people who are actually happy and thankful about it, is a very gratifying aspect at Victoria's bakery. I don't know this first hand, but from the stories Victoria tells me after she comes home from Cochrane. A very noteworthy reward for all the hours Lauren and Victoria pour into those creations.
Especially the joy she sees in children's eyes, when their parents buy a treat that's just made for them. Cupcakes, cookies and pies. So much to choose from. They all walk away happy, it does not get any better than that for any business.
The first day Victoria opened the doors at GF Patisserie, I took some pictures of the very first customers walking through the doors. Pat and Stuart first met Victoria at the Bearspaw Market, made the trip to Cochrane for her soft opening and they are still coming back week after week.
There are many others I did not meet but got to hear about from stories, Christa, a fellow blogger from Cochrane, Pauline, who works in Cochrane and visits GF Patisserie often, then there are Paul, Tracey, Brayden and Darby, three of them from one family afflicted with Celiacs disease.
