Sharyl Naftal is the owner of the local bakery Peacecake and is known for making larger-than-life gluten-free goodies that are indistinguishable from their wheat-based counterpart. Peacecake’s baked goods always taste like they are fresh out of the oven of a high-end bakery.
They make a line of gluten-free mixes and baked goods (dairy-free options too) that include: chocolate chip cookies, chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, ginger cookies, peanut butter cookies (flourless), double chocolate sandwich cookies (think oreo), brownies, cupcakes, muffins, thumbprint cookies and the list goes on. Peacecake is not a dedicated bakery, but they take great measures to avoid cross contamination. They use separate utensils, measuring cups, and equipment when putting together these special mixes and when baking.
Peacecake participated in the GIG of Atlanta Vendor Fair last year and had the most liked brownie of the day. This brownie is beyond decadent with its layers of rich chocolate, flaky top, and soft, moist texture. One or two bites are all you need..it is really that rich and decadent.
Peacecake also participated in the recent Atlanta Blogger and Bake Sale and her gluten-free ginger cookies were one of the most popular items. The ginger cookies are decorated with a large peace sign made out of icing. The bold ginger flavor is mouthwatering and the cookie has a perfect soft texture.
Their newest creation of flourless peanut butter cookies and double chocolate sandwich cookies are just wonderful. The peanut butter cookies are huge and this Examiner wonders how they came out with such a perfect, velvety texture. The double chocolate cookies remind me of Archway’s Dutch Chocolate cookies and when married with a healthy portion of sandwich creme were better than an oreo.
The last installment of cookies was shared with Jenna Thomas and her daughters. Here is what they had to say:
I have a weakness for chocolate chip cookies, particularly soft baked chocolate chip cookies. These cookies had such wonderful flavor and texture. They had the right balance of chocolate and cookie, and it was high quality chocolate, which makes all the difference. The combination of the softness of the cookie, the texture of the ingredients, and the quality of the ingredients made this seem like a treat purchased from a high-end bakery. Definitely try these delicious cookies as soon as you have the opportunity.
Peacecake’s mixes and baked goods can be found locally around metro-Atlanta in health food stores and they can be bought directly from the company. Peacecake also does dessert catering. These cookies can be purchased as wonderfully wrapped gifts, decorative cookie bouquets and individually wrapped.
