Cel-Kids Fall Festival

Cel-Kids gluten free pumpkin pie eating contestEveryone loves a good pie eating contest; they are messy, funny and silly all at the same time. I know I am prone to romanticizing things, but a Fall Festival, a pie eating contest and kids just feels like community to me. And the Cel-Kids community always sponsors great events for kids living with celiac disease and other gluten related intolerances. We just couldn't say no when asked to make 26 gluten free, dairy free pumpkin pies for the Cel-Kids Fall Pumpkin Festival.  

Based on the pictures and feedback we received, the pies were a hit.

"It went really well. The kids were sooooooooooooooooooo happy they could participate in the pie eating contest, but the parents were even more happy to see their kids able to participate. We had tears of joy from the parents. They had a table for traditional pies, and there was another table JUST for the gluten free kids. Thank you!"
