Kelly’s XO – Vegan and Gluten-Free Wedding Cupcakes and Cake Delivery for Your Wedding

Opting For A Vegan And Gluten-Free Bakery Delivery Service And Menu For Your Wedding

When word got out that former first daughter Chelsea Clinton was serving vegan dishes at her wedding reception and had a gluten-free cake made especially for the occasion, people (especially vegans and those with celiac disease) got to talking. Certainly, having a high profile personality like Clinton opting for an unconventional menu for her wedding reception offered a sort of glimmer of hope for many brides-to-be.

Although vegan and gluten-free dishes can be considered more of a rarity, more and more people are starting to consider emulating Chelsea’s example. Do note that she has been a long-practicing vegan with a gluten allergy and that her choice of what to serve in her wedding reception is more likely borne out of personal reasons.

Make no mistake about it; if you are considering opting for a vegan and gluten-free menu for your wedding day, your choices may be limited to a few caterers. While most caterers do offer vegetarian options, the dishes that they concoct may not necessarily be vegan or gluten-free and such requests can pose a challenge for caterers and even your choice of a baker.

Should you opt for a gluten-free menu on your big day? Many who have thought about this ended up being persuaded otherwise by other people involved in the wedding planning. However, if you are a vegan with a case of celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, isn’t it but fair that you thoroughly and genuinely enjoy your wedding day, right down to the food that is being served to you and your guests instead of limiting your food choices?

If you are bent on serving gluten-free dishes on your wedding day, you can either opt for dishes that are naturally gluten-free like veggies. Also, it would be helpful to find a caterer that truly understands the concepts behind a vegan and gluten-free menu and that your request is made out of legitimate medical reasons.

Apart from our gluten-free bakery delivery, we at Kelly’s Bake Shoppe are proud to tell you that we can make a wedding cake for you using the best natural ingredients including gluten-free flours, organic sugars and organic fair trade cocoa — and without all the bad stuff like artificial flavours and colours. You can choose from our list of flavours or you can have your cakes and cupcakes customized. Or better yet, choose our wedding package that includes a 6″ wedding cake and a tower of custom-designed cupcakes.

What an honour to bestow upon us….Thank you to everyone who voted for us. Humbly, we are so very grateful for all of your love and support since day one. Erinn and I were thrilled to have our two main men with us too….Ken and Mike. We need to give a special thank you to them for sticking by us every day with our crazy dream to change the world and the way people eat.

As I said in the acceptance speech at the awards ceremony…”We want to give a extraordinary, special thank you to the animals. Thank you for being so patient with us. Thank you for your steadfast, eternal and unconditional love and devotion to us. Thank you for your patience with us humans while we figure out the right way to live and sustain our bodies and this planet. You all (the animals) were our catalyst in creating Kindfood and Kelly’s Bake Shoppe and our inspiration to make a difference on this planet…..and to know we are all getting healthier because of it is purely a fringe-benefit. Thank you so much.”

 

Love Kelly and Erinn

K and S with Mom

1972 – Kelly, my sister Shannon and our mom, Colleen

 

Kelly Childs_Shannon Childs_Colleen Childs_Kellys Bake Shoppe Gluten Free Bakery_Gluten Free burlington_Vegan and gluten free oakville_Best bakery burlington_Tosca Reno_Eat Clean Diet_Butternut Squash Recipes_

Kelly, Shannon and Mom….40 years later

Where would any of us be without our lovely moms?

For me, my heart sings for my mom, Colleen. She’s been the one to always be there for me. Whether it was singing me to sleep as a child (my favourite: “Christopher Robin”) with her angelic voice, kissing my cut knees from falling off my tricycle or mending a broken heart – she was always there for me and my sister.

Our moms have all made us the women we are today and I’m so grateful for the strength, independence and brilliance she instilled in me (and I in turn, got to do the same for my daughter, Erinn). Everything I learned about giving freely, caring deeply and love, I learned from my mom.

As the years have gone by, I’ve been fortunate to have a daughter of my own and to also be able to work with her every day at our award-winning Gluten-Free & Vegan bakery Kelly’s Bake Shoppe and super-successful restaurant Kindfood. Sometimes, I just don’t realize how crazily unique our relationship is (that we work and hang out together every day) until I’m told and reminded. For me, ‘it is as it is’ and I’m just eternally grateful the heavenly bodies endeared me with this wonderful little girl. I just could never imagine my life any other way.

Kelly with Erinn…. May 1990 (1 month old)

This day is for ALL women. Not just mothers on ‘Mother’s Day”. As women, we inherently are the natural nurturers of this beautiful planet. It’s who we are, and it’s what we have been bred with. We breathe new life, we cultivate families, we heal, we build babies, we sacrifice, we make love not war, we motivate villages to dig themselves out of poverty, we inspire, we’re gentle and yet still strong, we never give up on Mother Earth, we are tenacious as they come and we’ve been unheard long enough.

I think of my mom now and the life she (and my dad) created for the benefit of my sister and me. I want to say,”Thank you” to her, for all of her sacrifices and selfless choices she made to make our life the best it could be. Thank you mom!! Our life really was wonderful!!!

For this weekend, be sure to give an extra big smile and hug to ALL the women you meet. They all have a story and they all have made a special contribution to the love in the world.

 

 

 

 

Happy Mother’s Day to my dear, special mom and to ALL the women on this wonderful planet (you KNOW who you are) and a special thank you to my daughter for choosing me to be her mom…. I’m so grateful to the angels that gave her to me. xo

 

 

Love Kelly and Erinn,

(Be sure to come and visit us at Kelly’s Bake Shoppe over the weekend and see all the beautiful Mother’s Day Cupcakes we have)

Some people just LOVE Vanilla. They are addicted to the soft creamy vanilla flavour. We try to get them to try something new but it’s always “No way, I’m hooked on these Vanilla ones”.
We make Vanilla Bean Cupcakes every day – just so everyone is happy. For kids we top them with our delicious Gummi Bears.
All organic, Gluten Free, Egg Free, Dairy-Free, Peanut-Free and Soy-Free.

Red Velvet Gluten-Free Vegan Cupcakes

Red Velvet Cupcake_Mile High Brownie_Gluten Free Ontario Bakery_Kellys Bake Shoppe Gluten Free Burlington_Kelly Childs_Erinn Weatherbie_Gluten Free Canada Bakery_Gluten Free Vegan Bakery

This is Erinn‘s favourite and I must say, mine too. The flavour of this cupcake is unlike you have ever had before. There is one cup of beet juice in every dozen cupcakes. This allows us to not have to use as much sweeteners or raw cane juice or organic sugar. Depending on the occasion, they get decorated differently.

We use Apple Cider Vinegar and special cocoa to really make the colour pop- “RED”.

This Red Velvet Cupcake is the real deal from the old-fashioned days when there was no such thing as artificial red food colouring. I don’t know how other bakeries (to be perfectly honest) put red food colouring in their baked goods knowing that it causes cancer and other chronic diseases. And they have to put in A LOT in their cupcakes to make them red! …..usually up to 3 TBSP per dozen cupcakes. OMG!

At Kelly’s Bake Shoppe and Kindfood, we don’t use artificial colours in our products. Only plant-based or flower-based extracts and colours are in our bakery. If we wouldn’t eat them ourselves, why would we want to harm anyone else and use them in our ingredients for you, our wonderful customers, to eat?

Enjoy!

We won!!! The Toronto Vegan Bake-Off!!!

I still can’t believe it but here I am, Sunday February the 5th, and I’m still reeling in the giddiness that we did this! We ‘dominated’ this Bake- Off event! The decision of what to bake for it (we couldn’t decide so we chose 3) and how to get it to Toronto was the obvious challenge, but seeing how well we did, it was TOTALLY worth it!!!!
Thank you to everyone who supported us and voted for us! Thank you to the TVA staff and volunteers who helped us plate 300 pieces in one hour’s time! Wow! We did it!

Three weeks of planning, implementing ideas and then creating the final products…. Three entries and we ended up with 3 wins!!!

Mile High Brownie

BEST in show! Dulce De Leche Cupcake

The building of Kindfood and the Kelly’s Bake Shoppe has been an exhilarating experience for me and as time goes by, I realize how much I love making people happy by giving them the opportunity to enjoy Gluten Free and Vegan treats that taste simply …..Awesome! I also enjoy showing people how easy it is to make different food choices; like the importance of choosing organic and how all foods should be whole and not processed. These are new ways to eat for most and ones that they will greatly benefit from (I go into it in greater detail in some of my other posts).

None of us should feel deprived in life due to lifestyle decisions (going vegan) nor due to food sensitivities like Celiac Disease, lactose intolerance or other food allergies to egg or soy or peanuts, etc. Nor should we feel deprived because we’ve decided to eat healtheir and pay attention to what goes into our bodies and our kid’s bodies.

It’s been a welcomed challenge for me to be able to help raise the bar in the food industry and contribute to the consciousness and wellness of people. There’s nothing more satisfying to me than making someone smile and “baking people happy”. When you are able to connect to the most intimate level to humans by providing them with delicious, organic, allergy-friendly nourishment, you make them happy from the very depths of their spiirts and it radiates on out.

I’m thrilled and honoured to have won these awards and want you all to know there’s WAY MORE where that came from! Be prepared for the Vegan and Gluten-Free industry to get a little shake up. Heck, you might even see us go toe to toe with those conventional bakers out there using the over-rated white flour, butter and eggs (I actually think that would be a brilliant idea).

Kelly and Kelly’s Bake Shoppe team are coming soon to a town near you (in the meantime, we ship to all parts of the GTA so call us at 905 333-1400 to place your order)

Thank you!!!

Kelly and Erinn
