Get to know who we are …
Love & Cake was created to shower love to others by providing a way to nurture the mind, body, and soul. Our baked goods and dry mixes are full of vitamins and nutrients which feed the mind and the body without causing any harm. The outreach portion of the company helps feed your soul by playing a vital role in allowing us to help others within the local community. God gave us the ability to love others in addition to ourselves and we hope at Love & Cake that we are able to help others achieve this successfully.
We use 100% unrefined sweeteners such as coconut sugar, maple syrup, maple sugar, and evaporated cane juice. All retain their nutrients due to skipping the refining process.
For our keto line, we decided to use Allulose as our main sweetener. This sugar-free alternative resembles fructose without affecting blood sugar. It is diabetic friendly with little to no effect on blood glucose or insulin levels. In small-scale studies, Allulose has shown to help improve insulin resistance. We love the taste and bake-ability of this sweetener and found it to be a perfect fit for our brand.
MEET THE BAKER
Hi! I am Maria, owner and baker of Love & Cake, a naturally sweetened, vegan, and gluten-free bakery based out of Pittsburgh, Pa. When I was diagnosed with PCOS, insulin resistance, infertility, and morbid obesity (400lbs), I realized I needed to make a drastic change. The healing I needed wouldn’t come out of a bottle and it was not going to be easy. Turning to God through prayer, I soon had my answer.
Through clean eating (WFPB), I lost over 150Ibs. I regained my zest for life, my energy, and a thinner waist-line. I beat infertility and learned to manage my symptoms of PCOS and pre-diabetes. I still have a ways to go but my journey thus far has taught me one very valuable thing…what you eat makes a HUGE difference.
So now my passion is to pass on my knowledge and love for healthy baking to others. To show everyone that indulging in amazing desserts and sweet treats can be done without the harm and neglect incurred physically and even mentally. My prayer for all of my customers is to love yourself fully, pray abundantly, and eat guiltlessly and what a better way to start then with one of my handmade cake jars or sweet treats!
