South Tampa keeps getting sweeter. A little over 6 years ago, Stacy’s Gluten Free Goodies launched at 14379 North Dale Mabry Highway. Stacy Riffel’s cheery bakery was inspired by her son, Zachary. At the age of 3, after Zachary had been dealing with developmental delays, a doctor suggested Stacy get him tested for food allergies.
It turns out he’s sensitive to gluten, wheat, eggs and dairy. Following a change in diet, Zachary blossomed into an outgoing and happy child. Recognizing the monumental effect this had on her son, Stacy felt compelled to help other families that had a need for allergen-free baked goods.
Stacy’s helps families savor the little things
In 2011, Tampa was officially introduced to the gluten-free bakery concept; and, in 2017, the bakery announced they would be expanding in South Tampa. Located at 5130 South Dale Mabry Highway, this new location is set to open before the end of June.
Stacy’s offers muffins, cupcakes, cookies, pizza crusts and more. While you can pop into the shop and pick up something sweet on the go, they also craft custom cakes for birthdays, anniversaries and weddings.
If you’re unable to make it to the shop, then you can have a custom order shipped to you ($25 minimum). All items freeze well for up to two months.
S’mores cupcakes and allergen-free apple pies
Premium preorder favorites include the S’mores cupcake and the Peach Bellini — white cupcakes infused with peach schnapps and champagne, topped with a peach champagne frosting and peaches.
The bakery manages to infuse the summery city of Tampa with the irresistible perfume of fall courtesy of their allergen-free apple pies. For custom orders, or to learn more about shipping options, call 813.477.4247.
