Indie Candy, The Funky Muffin Bakery, and Gluten Free Birmingham would love for you to join us for a gluten free cupcake social for the kids.  It is not often that our gluten free kids get to go places and not have to worry about the food that will be there.  I have a celiac child myself and I know those feelings.  Together we want to celebrate these kids and let them know that they are special!  So, we hope that you will come join the fun tomorrow. 

If you plan to come, please RSVP here so we have enough
