It is with very mixed emotions that I announce that I will no longer be making cakes. It has been such a pleasure and a privilege to provide tasty and beautiful treats for so many people over the past few years, but I am not able to continue. There are about a hundred little reasons I could give for this, but it was primarily about my health.
Around the time I started doing cakes I discovered that I cannot tolerate gluten. Ironic, right? Over time I have discovered just how difficult it is to avoid the stuff. In spite of my efforts I was still finding myself ill on a pretty frequent basis. I decided that for the summer I needed to try removing all gluten containing items from the house and see how I did. The result of this experiment is the reason I am no longer making cakes; I feel fantastic!
As much as I am sad about no longer being able to provide the celebration centrepiece for all those special occasions, I am beyond delighted with how healthy, happy and energetic I am feeling. I am also excited about some new adventures that I will be taking through the upcoming year. (I won’t get into all of that here, but feel free to ask me about it!)
To each and every one of you who have enjoyed a cake that I made, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your special days.
