Naked Cakes with pretty pretty flowers on top certainly do make my heart sing so when Gillian from Crumbs of Comfort Cake Design sent me this image of her recent work I knew it had to feature in my Monday Favourite post.

I asked Gillian to answer some questions about her passions for baking so you could find out a little more about this lovely lady who I have had the pleasure of getting to know via my business. Here is what she told me:-

“I have been passionate about baking since I was toddling.  Some of My fondest memories are of helping my nanna and grandma in their tiny kitchens prepare cakes, pastries and sweet treats.  I was thirteen when my beloved nana passed away and took it upon myself to make the mince pies that christmas. I loved watching people devour my baked delights. I love the fact fôod can evoke so many emotions.

My daughter was diagnosed with anaphylaxis to peanuts at 16 months.  Unable to find a suitable cake for her  second birthday really was the catalyst.  I have celiac disease it was at that time near impossible to find gluten and nut free cake.  After spending a couple of years working hard developing allergen aware baked goods, I became fully registered with a food business licence and opened crumbs of comfort 2 1/2 years ago.

As I knew first hand the lack of choice with gluten free cakes, I was determined to make all flavours available in GF.  The most popular GF flavours are the white chocolate and vanilla bean and the caramel kiss.  The most popular GF and dairy free is the chocolate confetti cake .

Gillian has shared with us in the past some wonderful gluten free recipes and has a few more to come over the coming weeks.  Please do follow along with Gillian via her facebook page here or her website here.
