About The Happy Tart

Gluten-free treats so amazing it's like a fairytale!

“When life gives you lemons, make lemon curd”, perhaps I misquoted a tad, however, that is the philosophy behind The Happy Tart.  I discovered I was gluten intolerant while attending the Professional Pastry Arts program at L’Academie de Cuisine.  Instead of dropping out I was determined to discover a way to make French Pastries and Cakes Gluten Free.

I spent a year researching and baking and tasting and researching again, to come up with gluten free French pastries and Cakes.  My staff uses French baking techniques to make the best tasting and most beautiful pastries and cakes.  We believe that every Bride and Groom should have a beautiful and delicious wedding cake on their wedding day.  One that they and their guests can all enjoy.  We meet with each couple at the bakery to design the cake of their dreams.  Give us a call today at 571-395-8280 to set up a tasting appointment!

We had such a wonderful experience working with Emma and the Happy Tart team on our wedding cake! I have celiac so I needed a gluten-free cake for our wedding and decided to check out Happy Tart at the recommendation of a friend who had her wedding cake done by Happy Tart. Shortly into our tasting, I knew Happy Tart was who I wanted to work with! Emma was incredibly friendly and professional and greeted us warmly upon our arrival. She took the time to sit with us during and explain each of the different flavor options she had us try and talked about the different flours used, how different icings could withstand heat (we had a summer wedding), etc. Everything we tasted was incredibly delicious (as our wedding guests later attested to and agreed!) and the whole tasting experience really stood out compared to some of the other places we visited (only plain chocolate or plain vanilla gluten-free options; no one really available during tasting to answer any follow-up questions). Emma was also a pleasure to work with when we started to design our wedding cake and it turned out exactly as my husband and I had imagined! We'd highly recommend working with Happy Tart for your wedding cake!

Try the magic that is this incredible cake!! Everyone LOVED our wedding cake, even guests who aren't huge fans of sweets. We had a perfect wedding day, and everyone had something wonderful to say about the cake. We had to stay late just to squirrel away the last few pieces. Absolutely amazing!
