A celiac, a wife to a trombone loving musician, and mother of 3 creative souls. Must be in their genetics!
My love for old time fashion, the arts, and fancy food continually shape me. I am the owner and creative soul behind Whippin' Good Eats where the baked goods are delightful, delicious, and always gluten free continuing with my line of baking mixes!
How it all started...
In 2017 I found out I had Celiac Sprue disease (a genetic autoimmune disease where the body cannot process gluten, to put it simply). 1+% of the world population has Celiac whether they realize it or not. For anyone who receives this diagnosis, it's life changing if they want to heal themselves and stay healthy. All of a sudden, you can't just eat all your favorite breads, pastas, desserts, etc. You can't just go out to your favorite fast food chains, restaurants, hangouts, etc. Whether it be family or friends, the people who care for your well-being can only imagine the stress it can cause because they know it affects your health. Like any true allergy, cross-contamination can have serious side effects.
It’s amazing how far gluten free and allergy conscious foods have come! You can usually find something out there that will meet your wants or needs. However, I felt compelled to go one step further. Being a cook’s daughter and having amazing adoptive grandparents, I grew up being able to experience the world through the arts, detailed beauty around, and creative/elaborate foods. I craved for the finer enjoyments in food and taste. In the past three years, my passion for creative baking has progressed from sharing my goodies with family and friends into a business. I believe that food should not only look good, but taste great. While there will always be differences in gluten vs gluten free foods, I think I have brought delight and delicious to my gluten free baking and mixes that anyone can enjoy!
Frequently Asked Questions
1. Do you ONLY bake gluten free and allergy friendly items?
Yes. My business is dedicated to prorviding gluten free and allergy friendly baked goods. This helps to eliminate cross contamination risks for those who need to be.
2. Do you cater or deliver for events?
I can provide baked goods for your event. These orders are typically for pick up only but delivery and setup can be provided for an additional fee. Anyone going to your event is welcomed to pick up the order and it does not have to be the listed contact person. However, the name of the pick up person would be appriciated to ensure your items get to your event.
3. When should I place an order?
Thank you for asking! I require orders finalized and paid in full 2+ weeks before your need by date. This allows for timely production process of your order (cake, cupcakes, decorated sugar cookies, etc). Keep in mind, the bigger your event, the more time is required.
Note that during spcial occasions/holidays (New Year's, Valentine's, graduations, Christmas, etc.) throughout the year are generally busier. Availibility for orders fill quickly and should be place earlier than 2 weeks.
