Yesterday, after a grueling morning at the doctor’s office getting my fingers pricked, I had hoped to celebrate my freedom by going out to eat at Chipotle and checking out a bakery.Â We went out, but I wasn’t celebrating.Â I just found out I have gestational diabetes.Â I meet with a counselor later today to determine what kinds of things I need to keep myself and my baby healthy.
Ah, but a bakery, you ask?
We headed to Sublime Bakery in Fort Worth to check out their gluten-free products.Â First thing in the morning, after all the equipment is cleaned and sanitized, the owner and chef (Catherine Ruehle) bakes some gluten-free cupcakes and cookies (and that is the only time she bakes gluten-free, to reduce the risk of cross-contact).Â Currently, she offers gf sugar cookies with a lemon glaze, gf vanilla cupcakes, and gf chocolate obsession cupcakes, but she is working on recipes for gf scones, muffins, coffeecakes, and snickerdoodles.Â She even bakes custom cakes for weddings and special events!
That chocolate cupcake you see up there – it has a dark chocolate ganache filling.Â Oh my gosh, it was good.Â I only had a little bit, though (I know you’re watching me now, lol), as I shared all of that with Andy and the boys (and I took the little pieces).Â The cookies were also pretty good.
If you live nearby, or are coming this way, you might want to call in the morning and have them set some aside for you or place an order, because once she’s started baking with the regular flours, she does no more gf baking that day.Â The girl behind the counter told us that some gf people will come in and buy all that they have (and I believe it – those that don’t bake at all can become quite desperate for good gf baked goods).
Check them out next time you are in Fort Worth.

Sublime Bakery has launched an online store with nation-wide shipping, including their most popular gluten-free goodies!
The first time we had issues with Sublime Bakery was when we went to pick up our tasting box. I am allergic to eggs so them having vegan options was a huge plus. The tasting box had 4 cupcakes in it. I wanted to have 2 vegan cupcakes for me and 2 “regular” cupcakes for my fiance. We drove almost 2 hours to get there and when we got there my 2 were done right but my fiances were both the same. When we asked why they were the same the lady said “oops, you only get to try 1 flavor today.” I was pissed and I emailed Catherine and she said that she would take care of it. After looking for other bakeries to do my eggless grooms cake we decided to go back to Sublime because they could do really good looking cakes. All over their website it said the minimum purchase was 200 bucks. When I talked to them they said that the minimum was now 700 bucks! This was April 25th. They said their new pricing went into effect April 15th and even though we had been talking with them over 6 months about it since we didn’t have a contract 10 days ago it would be 700 minimum. Their cakes are good, but they’re not 700 bucks good. The owner is too wrapped up in book deals and tv deals to run a good bakery. Do yourself a favor and stay away.
