I am so lucky to have attended Jewel’s Cupcake Shop 1st Anniversary Party & Celiac Fundraiser at Citizen Espresso in Phoenix. They were taking donations for food and raffle prizes to benefit the Greater Phoenix Celiac Disease Foundation and the East Valley Celiac Chapter. These are two AMAZING organizations that have made me feel at home in Arizona as a Celiac.
I rocked a Celiac and the Beast t-shirt to the event! I’m a Celiac – loud and proud! It was so awesome to see so many other active Celiacs in the community. So many familiar faces from support groups and the community. You guys are amazing.
I promise, I didn’t mean to sit next to all the cupcakes. Okay, maybe I did. These were Birthday Cake cupcakes, Salted Caramel, Apple Pie and a few other magic ones. I didn’t get to try the brownies, but Non-GFBF did and he loved them.
They did a great job of getting local organizations to giveaway some great prizes. Places like Tryst Cafe and PF Chang’s were there along with KIND bars.
I’m so stoked, I won a small KIND bar basket, and Rhonda’s amazing “So What Can I Eat Now?” book! I’m the raffle queen!
If you leave dairy-free, soy-free, egg-free, and gluten-free – then you have to get this book and follow Rhonda Peters!
My first bite I fell in love with the salted caramel cupcakes!
These rolls were good for sandwiches – they were in poppy seed, dill, and garlic. I only had the dill one.
Don’t you wish every sauce was labeled like this? I just wish I knew how to make an awesome aioli!
These are the homemade Wheat Thins (or as they were called Wheat(less) Thins). They definitely had a different texture, but still held up well to hummus. These are great crackers. I would love if Jewel’s would sell these! YUM!
The cupcakes were finger lickin’ good. So yummy!
AAAAAAND there were vegan cookies too! How fantastic!
Didn’t get a chance to try, but would have liked to! I was so stuffed though!
What a beautiful centerpiece! Flowers and gluten-free cupcakes! If I were to get married, I would love to have this as a centerpiece! Yummy and pretty!
Mmmmmm Red Velvet. Yummy!
So nice to see dairy-free options on top of their gluten-free status!
Dairy-free Red Velvet – how excellent!
Sitting down writing this at 10pm, I am SO regretting that I didn’t try this cupcake. It looks AMAZING.
I totally recommend you checking out Jewel’s Cupcake Shop’s online store (if you don’t live in Arizona). A classic-size is $3 and a Jumbo is $4.50. If you want a mini cupcake like the ones we scarfed down, it’s $1.25. There’s also different pricing for scones, cookies, and everything else you can imagine! They’re great people and I really want to support their business because they’re an awesome part of our community. And they’re tasty too!
Which one would YOU want to try?
