Gerardo's European Bakery
Need a gluten free birthday cake for a kid? Check out the cake Gerardo's European Bakery made for us!
This past weekend we ordered a Gluten Free birthday cake for my 5-year-old from Gerardo's European Bakery, 22 Turnpike Road in Westborough Massachusetts. The cake came out really good:
Note: We had to provide the bakery with the Disney princess. We simply ordered them on Amazon, washed them, and gave it to the bakery a couple of days before we schedule to pick up the cake.
They did a great job decorating the cake, and everyone enjoyed it. We didn't tell everyone that it was a Gluten-Free cake since some of the kid's frown on having to eat Gluten Free. Nobody complained about the cake.
Normally we have a fancy cake from The Icing on the Cake in Newton, but now we have to have a Gluten-Free cake. Maybe someday we'll be able to return to The Icing on the Cake.
In addition to the cake, we also got an assortment of Gluten-Free pastries, just in case that everyone wasn't in the mood for a cake. They had a good selection of Gluten-free pastries in the display case. It was a bit hard to see what was Gluten Free, but the lady behind the counter was able to point out which ones were Gluten Free.
The cake and pastries went very quickly and there was very little leftover. The cookies and brownies were certainly a big hit with the kids!
If your in Boston's MetroWest area and looking for a great place to get a Gluten Free child's birthday cake, we certainly recommend trying Gerardo's European Bakery.
Driving Tip: If your driving on Route 9 westbound (From Boston/Framingham) - don't listen to your GPS! You should take the 135 South exit off of Route 9 and drive under Route 9 and then take the on-ramp to get back on Route 9 eastbound. Gerardo's European Bakery will be the first building you see when you get back on Route 9. (If you follow the way Waze wants you to go, you'll add about 5 minutes of extra driving time just to do a u-turn at the set of lights further down the road!)
