Any way... back to the important stuff: the food. Overall, the food was really good. They serve everything cupcakes(savory ones too!) to biscuits, and even bread by the loaf. While, they served only a few flavors of cupcakes tonight, I can tell already that they have a bright(and long) future in the Fresno/Clovis area. Although I HATE when people go on and on about all the things they didn't like, I do want to offer my honest opinion. I will compare them in a "pro/con" form to give a clearer picture.
~ Their dairy-free vanilla and spice cake(with goat cream cheese frosting) are amazing! They are sooo moist and I will definitely be going there just for those two cupcakes.
~ They have the BEST gluten-free pizza I have ever tried. Over the last year I have been experimenting with different recipes, so I wasn't expecting to like it. It was so good that I forgot it was gluten-free(which is a huge compliment!).

Note: There were a few bake goods tonight that were not awful, but needed a little help. Because of this, I decided to have an "in-between section."
~ I liked(not loved) the carrot cake. It was moist, but it didn't have enough "carrot" flavor for me.
~ Like the carrot, the chocolate was moist, but I couldn't tell it was chocolate(I wanted a "deeper" chocolate flavor)
~ The biscuits were good, they just need maybe something on top(maybe garlic salt?)
~ The snickerdoodle had really good flavor, but they were a little crumbly
NOTE: I feel really bad for saying anything negative, because I hate being critical. However, I want people to know that I love their food overall, but I want to give constructive criticism to allow them to improve.
~ The shortbread was very dry(I know shortbread is dry but like a different kind of dry, if that makes sense). It also needed more butter-y/shortbread flavor.
~ I want to first say that I made some french bread and it turned out the same way...crumbly and dry. I was really hoping that they had found the secret. However, that was not the case. I think that gluten-free bread is just really hard to get right.
~ The business is small....more of a take-out place. I am hoping that they will continue to expand, allowing them to get a bigger place.
As a final note, I wanted to say that I enjoyed myself tonight. I got to meet other gluten-free bloggers and enjoy some really good gluten-free food. I am looking forward to trying their lemonade cupcake with strawberry butter cream and their savory cupcakes(my mouth is watering!)
