    When my husband and I go to San Antonio we stay at Chicken Paradise Bed and Breakfast. We learned about The Little Aussie Bakery from the owners Anne and Joe. Having Celiac can make things difficult at times. Chicken Paradise is the only gluten free B&B in the state of Texas (that I know of.) Our first trip to Little Aussie Bakery and I spied this beauty in the case. The next time we’re in San Antonio and at the bakery, I want a slice. I can tell you The Little Aussie Bakery has amazing pizza. The lemon cookies and the Anzac Bikkies are melt-in-your-mouth. I stock up on the cookies. Little Aussie Bakery also ships most of their items so take a look at their website. Don’t forget, if you’re in San Antonio to stop on by. My husband doesn’t have Celiac and he enjoys the Little Aussie Bakery, too.

  3. […] use whatever you have on hand. These are especially delicious with this chocolate cake as a base. Vanilla is also a classic option. Of course, you could use leftovers from a Little Aussie cake […]

  4. Thanks! They’re pretty delicious, too, if I do say so myself 🙂
