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!

Today is Career Day at school ... Our son chose to be a Gluten Free Baker!!! He brought the hot mitt with him, ready to make delicious goodies that are safe for everyone 😁
Best part of our day! My son grabbed a donut and ran back to class. Favorite part for us is not worrying about the ingredients because we know they are safe!
My husband got this from The Difference Baker. It's delicious and gluten free
