Gluten is a natural protein that helps give baked goods their elasticity, shape, and chewy texture. But for folks with celiac disease or just generally sensitive immune systems, gluten can act like an angry boxer on your tummy.

To avoid inadvertently ordering a side of painful abdominal inflammation and nausea with your breakfast, Wolferman’s Bakery has baked up an array of certified gluten-free cakes that are every bit as yummy as those with gluten.

The 135-year-old bakery has built a reputation of being committed to the health concerns of its gluten-sensitive customers while maintaining the tradition of its baked goods’ treasured great taste.

“We wanted to provide our customers with gluten-free alternatives that taste just as amazing as our products that contain wheat, and being certified by a third-party organization as gluten-free gives our customers added confidence,” says Blair North, production director at Wolferman’s.

Here are some gluten-free cakes that are perfect gifts for even the most tender of tum-tums.
