For some foodies, gluten-free is a healthful new diet fad. For others, serious allergies and other conditions make it an absolute way of life. And the former has been something of a boon to the latter, prompting Orlando’s bakers – from smaller operations like Gigi’s (Orlando’s is just one of five in Florida alone!) to to Winter Park's Jillycakes, to the the Disney Springs installment of Erin McKenna's Bakery NYC, an entirely gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, egg-free vegan operation! Of course, the nice thing about desserts is they’re not one-size, fits all. Winter Park’s Le Macaron and Altamonte Springs’ Heavenly Flan are purveyors of traditional French and Latin delights that have been gluten-free since their creation – no recipe modification necessary! Even Food Network stars like three-time “Cupcake Wars”-winner Hollis Wilder’s making cupcakes for her gluten-free fans. Like many of her signature flavors, though, they fly off the racks. Call ahead and order a dozen to be sure your treats will be waiting when you arrive. While those included herein all serve gluten-free products, always make sure to ask staffers about their products' ingredients and the kitchen practices they employ before you order!
