I normally don't plug Orlando businesses because I know that I have readers from all over the world, but I have to tell you guys about how amazing her gluten free desserts are just in case you come to visit!
I met her at the Lake Nona's Farmer's Market and I found out she will make ANYTHING ON HER MENU GLUTEN FREE.
Probably a small one.
Her pumpkin cupcakes really do taste like Granny's pumpkin pie with light, fluffy maple syrup frosting. It's perfect-- just enough maple syrup flavor to give it something special. Seriously, it is amazing.
Inside of the chocolate hazelnut cupcakes there is a thick decadent ganache filling topped with an actual raspberry. Yes, a real piece of fruit. Not only is it delicious, but it gives you permission to have two (or three) because it's healthy because it has fruit, right? Of course.!!
You may also want to inquire as to if she sells her frosting by the jar because I think I could just eat it by itself. It's the best frosting I've ever had! It's so light and airy, but yet rich without being overly sweet.
When I asked Leah why she makes everything with a gluten free option she told me, "Most people with a gluten allergy develop it late in life and miss the flavors and textures of a non gluten free cake. Desserts should taste equally as good for everyone, allergy or no allergy". Preach it, sister!
I repeated the test in my English class and guess what?! The class was split pretty much 50/50 on which cupcake was gluten free. The majority agreed that one cupcake was a bit more moist (gluten free) and the other was a bit more cakey (regular), but they couldn't decide which was which. When I asked which cupcake they preferred they were again split or undecided. Most people said they would happily eat either one!
I can honestly say that it is my opinion that Four 0 Seven has the best gluten free cupcakes in Central Florida. If you are local, I highly recommend them to you especially if you have a gluten allergy because you will remember what really, really good cake used to taste like!
Here is a picture of her menu!
I was not paid nor asked to write this review. It is my opinion and I believe it to be correct, but I am not responsible if you get fat from Leah's desserts.
