HOW COOL IS THIS?!??

Thank you, Rebecca Greene Author for featuring our amazing pastry chef, Lauren Katz in her new children’s book!!! Lauren specially created a gluten-free and vegan cupcake recipe that will be published in Rebecca’s Book, “The Next Best Cupcake”! 🧁🧁🧁

Happy New Year everyone! Now that it's January, the publishing date for my first children's book, The Next Best Cupcake, is right around the corner!

I'm excited to announce that my new business, Tabby Cat Publishing, LLC is up and running! It has always been my dream to own my own publishing company and when I lost my job due to the pandemic earlier this year, it seemed like the right time to finally make this dream a reality! As a licensed social worker, I wanted to find a way to combine my interests in mental health, wellness, and writing into a new vocation, and that's how the concept for Tabby Cat Publishing came about.

Tabby Cat Publishing LLC is a small, independent publishing company located in the Washington, DC metro area. Our mission is to publish high-quality and beautifully illustrated children's books and guided journals focusing on social-emotional skills and overcoming challenges. Our books help kids learn, grow, and cope with challenges they may face.
I'm super excited about our editorial calendar for this year. Stay tuned for more exciting book announcements coming up!

While we are closed this week, we wanted to shift focus to the reason The Difference Baker came to be. We thought the best way to do this would be to share real life testimonials from some of our most beloved customers. This is why we do what we do!! We hope these stories inspire you, enlighten you, and bring awareness to the daily struggles and stressors a food allergy can create. We appreciate all of our amazing customers who participated in these testimonials! Thank you for your business, your trust and your support!! 💛

01/01/2021

2020 is FINALLY behind us! We are faced looking to a new year. Most carry a lot of the past into the future, but today I encourage you to only carry what serves you well. Here are a few personal things I've decided to carry into 2021:
Excitement, Peace, Growth, Success, Failure, Diligence, Surrendering, Abundant love for God, Myself and Others.

We all have the decision to carry whatever we want, and with that same power we can choose to drop what doesn't bring us joy. I encourage you today to reflect. Reflect on what you labeled "bad" in your life and see the good. Look harder if its not that obvious, I promise it's there.

I believe 2020 was hard because we lost control over most things we "thought" we'd always have control over. And that is scary for everyone. But it's very freeing in the same way. As a new business owner not knowing ANYTHING about the food industry just 18 months ago, we committed to this company. Then a pandemic hit and we had to close our doors just 5 months in, and that was scary. What freed me was how available pivoting actually was because of all the love and support from our local community. Building an e-commerce website in 24 hours wasn't exactly fun. Delivering 60 miles away for free wasn't cheap. Not being able to see all your smiling faces was the absolute worst! But, we made it. We made it because of you.

Today my whole entire team thanks you for allowing us to bless you. Thank you for allowing us into your homes. Thank you for allowing us to bring you peace when you were scared. Thank you for allowing us to see you smile when we were scared. You actually helped us way more than we helped you this past year.

We want to kick off this fresh start by offering 20% off all online orders over $100 through this week while we are closed. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts and Happy New Year from The Difference Baker! 🎉

Our Story

Our story started when our owner, Alyssa, discovered she was gluten-intolerant after years of trying to figure out why she was always so sick. Removing gluten and soy from her diet has been life-changing for Alyssa and her family and she wants others who have similar dietary restrictions to have a fun, safe place to go and enjoy delicious gluten-free treats! The Difference Baker was born out of faith, love and hope for a future for families suffering with gluten intolerance and Alyssa cannot WAIT to bring her creations to Loudoun County!

Taco night with the best tortillas ever! Love the difference baker so much!
Someone loved the cinnamon rolls from The Difference Baker!!! 😀🧑‍🍳 💙🥮
Hello. Contacting you on behalf of Twinpanzee Brewing Co who is having a Holiday Market event on Dec 5th. If you're interested in selling your products, please send an email to [email protected] There is NO fee to vendors. More info available at: https://www.facebook.com/events/355073185766707
I just had my first chocolate croissant. Woah. WOAH. WOOOOAAAAAAH! I will be dreaming of these as I try not to devour the other three that are sitting in my freezer. Your banana bread, pumpkin bread, cinnamon rolls, and chocolate croissants are 4 of the best things to happen to my 2020.
The gluten-free life sure ain’t bad when you have FRESHLY BAKED SOURDOUGH! We had bison burgers with root veggie “fries” and green beans for dinner. But the sourdough was, for sure, the star of the show. Oh, and I can’t forget to mention the crumb cake - OH MY GOODNESS, I’m in heaven! Thank you, Alyssa, and your incredibly gifted team of bakers! ❤️ #differencebakersnumberonefan
Are there any plans for GF apple cider donuts in the fall?
Our baking instructions fell off. Can you provide the baking instructions for cinnamon rolls?
If you have not tried the chocolate filled croissants yet- make sure you put in your order ASAP! These were absolutely divine. I may have teared up while eating it.......😜. Can’t remember the last time I had a croissant- over 10 years at least! Ah-mazing!! And the best part is that it was a 2 pack and so I have another to enjoy another day!
My first cinnamon roll in years and it is delicious! I can’t wait for you all to reopen so I can get fresh donut holes.
Thank you! I hope here in near future to be able to repay by donating back some money to help another family. We might be stuck in quarantine but I know my 5 year old go a nice gift today.
My girl who is dairy free and gluten free thoroughly enjoying her cupcake! 🤪 can’t ever pass up an opportunity to give my girl who has allergies treats!
Oh. My. Goodness. It’s been 10 years since I had a pot pie. My sweet hubby has been stopping by the bakery Saturday mornings and surprising me with treats. Tonight I had this! I almost cried! It was delicious! I’ll get more for sure!
