I wanted to type a nice post about my breakfast this morning, instead I'm surrounded by two adorable children who want all of my attention. I've managed to balance Ellis on my lap and the computer on my legs with Ceci on the other side begging for wonder woman videos on youtube. I bargained a few minutes away from wonder woman videos to write this note about my delicious coffee cake from Wild Flours Bakery in Huntington Village. We stopped by last night on our way home from haircuts and picked up some cupcakes and breakfast treats.
First of all, it's a dedicated gluten free bakery that does not use any nuts! They are also dairy free for those who need it. I love walking in the door and telling Ceci she can pick anything she wants in the cases, that is a huge mommy moment for me, considering most of the time I have to negotiate with her to select one or two items that are close to safe for her. Ceci picked a gorgeous vanilla cupcake topped with chocolate mousse frosting and some pink sprinkles, I chose a cookies and cream cupcake for dessert last night, and a coffee cake for breakfast today. We were too greedy to stop and take pictures of the cupcakes, they were so yummy we gobbled them up.
Maybe I'm glad it's a bit of a hike to the bakery, so I can save it for when I really want to go, otherwise I would weigh a million pounds. Everything is always yummy there and it is so hard to choose just a few treats when we are at the counter. As a person who has been gluten free all my life, there is such a beautiful happiness seeing an entire bakery case full of treats that are totally safe for me to eat. I said it earlier, but it's worth repeating, taking Ceci into a bakery where everything is safe for her to eat, makes my heart so happy, seeing the huge smile on her face as she runs to the glass case and presses her tiny button nose against it to choose the most beautiful treat she can find.
We are so happy we have found Wild Flours Bakeshop!
Ok, back to Wonder Woman videos!
