Boulder, Colorado (PRWEB) September 03, 2014
Kids are back in school, puzzling over math problems, reading about the prairie pioneers, and trying to contain themselves as their favorite day of the month draws near – the afternoon when the teacher cuts class short and breaks out the cupcakes to celebrate the month’s birthdays.
Not long ago, birthday celebrations were straightforward. There was cake – one kind. But the rise of so many food allergies and dietary restrictions has complicated birthday parties, especially those celebrated at schools, where the gatherings hold more kids than a typical weekend get-together in the backyard or a park.
But parties for kids – it goes for adults, too – don’t need to be so fraught. Kim & Jake’s (kimandjakes.com; 641 S. Broadway), Boulder, Colorado’s premier gluten-free bakery, specializes in birthday cakes and cupcakes that taste fantastic without containing one especially problematic ingredient – wheat gluten.
“Many people who try our cakes have no idea they are gluten-free,” said Jake Rosenbarger. “They just taste like cake. Really, really good cake.”
Rosenbarger learned he had celiac disease – and thus could not tolerate wheat gluten – after opening Kim & Jake’s as a traditional bakery in 2010. He had to wear a Hazmat mask to bake with gluten, while he perfected gluten-free recipes in his spare time. This year, the bakery jettisoned all of the old gluten recipes, and became 100 percent gluten-free.
Kim & Jake’s treats can be purchased at the Boulder store, at Whole Foods Market stores across the Rocky Mountain region, and through the shop’s online store.
