A sad day...

It is with much frustration and sadness that I officially "close" the business until further notice.  I have been newly diagnosed with Celiac Disease.  And I am not able, at this point, to bake with wheat flour (a staple in my recipes) in my kitchen.  I hope that I can figure out another way.  But until then...Gwendolyn's Goodies is closed.

Thanks for all of the business over the past year.

Things are busy and the oven is hot!  I am excited about the upcoming orders I have to share with my friends and family as they celebrate important days in their lives...birthdays, baby showers, weddings...and so many more!

A friendly announcement to my wonderful customers - I will be increasing my prices as of May 1st.  Please order your cake by April 30th in order to secure the Winter 2011 pricing.  All orders received after May 1st will be priced according to the Spring 2011 pricing list.

My two favorites so far!

 I am so proud to show you pictures of these 2 cakes.  The first I did for a cool 5 year old, Peyton.  It was so awesome to see all of the kids faces as they looked at and admired the cake.  And I've already received 2 orders for this one for later in the year.

The second one I did last weekend for a special 5 year old, Abigail.  It was a LATE night of decorating and I was at first not sure how it was going to turn out but as the night went on and the cake came was as though I was creating a masterpiece.  I hope you enjoy it too!

Gluten Free Products

I am proud to announce that I am offering Gluten Free products.  It would be a shame not to have this as an offering since my mom has Celiac Disease as do some of my friends.  If you would like to have a Gluten Free cake or cupcakes for your event, please specify when ordering.

I currently offer Golden Yellow G-Free and Chocolate G-Free.  As I perfect other recipes, I will include those as well.

Happy New Year!

Gwendolyn's Goodies is proud to announce that we (I) are back up and running!  With 3 cake orders already for this new year, the business taken off after a short break.  Although I am not 100% yet, I am hoping that as time goes by so will the aches and pains.
