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.......๐Ÿ˜œ. Canโ€™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!
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! ๐Ÿคช canโ€™t ever pass up an opportunity to give my girl who has allergies treats!
Oh. My. Goodness. Itโ€™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! Iโ€™ll get more for sure!
Just stopped in today for some V-Day treats and grabbed some of your Graham Crackers! OH MY GOODNESS they are amazing! While waiting for my pot pie to cook I got hungry and decided to nibble on one! yummy!

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!
