Melissa is the owner of Happyditty Gluten Free Bakery in Kingston, ON. I have been buying all my cakes and baked goods from her since moving to Kingston and she is absolutely awesome. She can accommodate all dietary needs, and even can make Vegan items! I have gotten my Reese’s Birthday Cake which was absolutely a peanut butter DREAM and then at least once or twice a month I’m getting the mixed baked good packs she puts together. The bakery is actually located in her home, and she has two separate kitchens one for her Gluten Free baking located on a separate floor from the rest of the house to ensure no cross contamination.
Be sure to contact Melissa for all your GF needs in Kingston- she is really great at taking whatever you have in mind and making it with her own twist. Everything is always fantastic and delicious and I’m always telling everyone I know to order from her.
Going back to about 2015/2016 was when I first discovered Kelly’s Bake Shoppe and officially became a part of “Kelly’s Tribe.”
Kelly Childs and Erin Weatherbee are the co-owners and also super fantastic mother-daughter duo who run the Kelly’s ship! These women are idols to me, and I love their determination and commitment to their customers. I actually reached out to both before hand to introduce myself, I was really hoping to meet them face to face to really thank them for all they are doing.
Located at 13633 Loyalist Parkway in Picton, ON its just a short drive for me from Kingston, and perfectly situation for all those great beach days in the Summer. I bought something of everything there- including a Nanimo Ice cream in which we are savouring and will keep it in the freezer until the day comes that we eat it.
So what is so great about Kelly’s In The County? Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Peanut Free, Vegan, and Egg Free (just to name a few). They use natural colouring (Hello Beets!!) and never put any added junk in their products. I saw a post on instagram of someone who brought their daughter who has never been able to eat from a bakery due to her anaphylactic allergies and all I can think is that this is what it’s all about. These women are literally changing lives of so many people! You are absolutely safe to eat here as it is 100% gluten free! Completely Celiac Safe.
We have to wait until next year for the official opening but I want to thank Kelly and Erin for coming this way and giving us a taste of what is to come. I am very excited and cannot express enough gratitude for them and all they are doing for the Celiac Community.
