Our Story

In January of 2017, our son Alexander was about to turn 3 years old. We wanted to make him a birthday cake that would taste like chocolate heaven but would not put him into a sugar coma. That is how Gentle Treats Bakery started, with its goal to create sugar-free and gluten-free desserts that would taste like the "real thing", but without the negative consequences to the body. This is one way we take care of our family and friends, by encouraging healthy eating habits. We really appreciate you giving us a chance to make your healthy journey sweeter!  


Kirsten O.: " Delicious. I could eat a vat of the frosting! My favorites are the chocolate, but I'm honestly a fan of ALL the kinds I've tried. They aren't too dense, not too sweet, and don't taste like fake sweetener either! Highly recommend. Even for people like me who don't need gluten or sugar free."

Yana C.: " Absolutely delicious cupcakes with absolutely no "I'm so fat" regrets. My husband is GF and I'm extremely picky about my food, so it was nearly impossible to find something that we both like. Until we tried Gentle Treats! The cupcakes are very flavorful, very very moist (which is hard to achieve with GF pastries), the icing is delish! My personal favorite - cream cheese icing: not overwhelmingly sweet, not annoyingly fake tasting like that cheap icing you buy at the store, just perfect! And it's always great to support a local business. If you haven't tried these cupcakes yet - you are missing out!"

Paul O.: " As a chocolate lover that doesn’t need the sugar, this is a great option for me. Thankful for alternative - great stuff!"

Sarah M.: " My husband and I LOVE all the Gentle Treats’ products! Our favorites are the lemon cake and the brownies! For anyone looking for a healthy, but delicious alternative to dessert, then Gentle Treats is your answer."

Kim T.: " The Lemon bundtcake is delicious! I liked the consistency of it and it doesn't taste sugar free. The owner was so kind and met me close to the interstate as I was driving in from out of town. Highly recommend!"
