Delicious Gluten Free

Monica was great at helping me figure out and decide what kind of gluten free cake I wanted! And for having it be a gluten free cake, there wasn’t a price hike (gluten free tax) that many locations add on. We’ve also gotten brownies and cookies from Monica as well, and those were also amazing! Ended up freezing some of the cookies and they’re still delicious after months in the freezer.
