Now that's a cheesy title if I ever wrote one. But it's true. I went to visit the bakery today. Both Victoria and Lauren were busy baking up a storm for next week's Valentine's day.
And it seems more and more that their secret ingredient is LOVE. Love for baking, love for happy customers and it shows.
Lauren made gluten free "Love Bites" already, they are heart shaped Callebaut chocolate dipped mini cheesecakes. I was able to snag a sample and they are fantastic. If you like GF Patisserie's cheesecake, you have to try those.
Victoria was in the middle of making gluten free sugar cookies today. Very buttery, flaky delights. This is going to be a special weekend for all Celiacs.
Now here is my advise how to get those special treats.....send this post to your loved ones with a very strong hint that this is what you want for Valentine's.
Easy. The best gluten free Valentine's gift. Since you are at it with the hinting, tell them abut Victoria's gift certificates too! Double Bonus.

What a good idea to make mini cheesecakes like that! In 6 days we will be living in Cochrane so now we will be able to stop in and pick up a treat for ourselves whenever we want :o)

Any chance those chesecakes are lactose free as well? Nothing worse than gluten intolerance combined with lactose intolerance.

Hi Eileen,

very soory. Lots of cream cheese in that one.

However Victoria's breads (except teh cheese bread) are lactose free and really worth a try.

six more days!! You must be jumping of joy now.

Cochrane is lucky to have residents like your family!

She's both jumping and dancing and singing.

The bites look good. I find bite sized things are awesome except for the fact that I snack on them too much. They're just so easy to eat!

Wow, fantastic! I am sure the love comes through in all their baking, but especially those wonderful Valentine treats.


Nicole said...

Yep! I'm excited! And yes, I've jumped for joy AND sang ;o) Even while packing lol

5 more days! I don't know what I'm going to try first... There's so much to choose from! Probably a cupcake since they were so good.

Hi Shirley,

when you love what you do, it usually shows.

They really enjoy the baking.
and I enjoy the eating.
