Autumn Cookies

I love ginger, in fact whenever we go out for sushi, I eat T's ginger and end up ordering scrumptious.
These Ginger Cookies are GF Belly's most recent creation and might I add my new favorites!

T loves these Spanish Pannelets, both gluten & dairy-free and chock full of beneficial vitamins & minerals.  Sweet potato is the base, mixed with almonds & coconut.  Traditionally these little round cuties are eaten throughout autumn-winter and in particular on November 1st...All Hallows Day aka. All Saints Day.

Oats & Raisins

Toasted oats and butter, a hint of cinnamon and sweet scents permeate the kitchen.  A comforting combination....oats & raisins. I love this cookie, in fact, if I had to choose just one classic cookie to eat for the rest of my life....I'd choose oatmeal raisin over chocolate chip..Any shape & size, thick & hearty, thin & delicate, crispy, long as it involves a combination of oats & raisins.

Our version is already a Gluten Free Belly favorite!  These lacy cuties are on the menu currently for wholesale customers and coming to Seattle-area farmers' markets this January (fingers crossed!).

More Cake Testing

Today almonds are the star in GF Belly's Almond Cake.  Light and buttery, this base makes a delicious wedding cake when cloaked in Mocha Buttercream, layered with chocolate or whipped cream & berries.  A few years ago I created a glutinous almond cake for some dear friends, you can check out photos here; this will be the style of GF Belly Baking Co.'s wedding cakes, buttercream and fresh flowers.  T. and I we will simply eat it plain, okay not so plain, a light dusting of powdered sugar, fresh peaches and ice-cream.

Happy Summer!

Chocolate Cake & Buttercreams

The base to GF Belly's Chocolate Cake is none else than rich Valrhona Cocoa Powder & Dark Theo Chocolate

GF Belly's Chocolate Cake is delicious when paired with Brown Sugar Buttercream.  For wedding options you may prefer pure dark chocolate, in which case go for GF Belly's Chocolate Cake & Bittersweet Chocolate Buttercream.  If you are a milk chocolate lover, this cake is a fun choice when paired with our Milk Chocolate Buttercream.   For something clean and classic you can't go wrong with Vanilla Buttercream and if you are a fan of coffee than Mocha Buttercream may be your cup of joe!
