Who do I think I am, anyway?
When I began Earthly Delights Creative Cakes and Cookies I made a commitment to use only the best and locally-available ingredients possible. Ideally, your cake will contain both organically-grown local ingredients and "nearby" organic. For example, wheat grown by Butterworks Dairy Farm in Westfield and milled in Québec becomes the whole wheat pastry flour I like to use. Some products, like sugar and cocoa, are just not available locally, so I make sure that these items are Fair Trade and produced in an environmentally-friendly manner, besides being organically-grown. To be sure, an organic cakes costs more than a conventional one, but I think you'll find it very good value for money - especially when you taste one!
hisis a line break, but you're not supposed to see it.
Food allergies and sensitivities seem to cropping up more and more - they can develop suddenly and at anytime in a person's life. But having one (or more) doesn't mean giving up all eating pleasures - especially a special occasion cake. I can work with you to create a cake (or cakes) that tastes great and looks beautiful. Natural food colorings derived from beet (reds) and tumeric (yellow) are available if artificial food colorings are an issue. Gluten-free, egg and/or dairy-free, even sugar-free - these are all ways I can help you have your cake and eat it too!
