West El Paso bakery offers treats for those with food allergies, sensitivities

Community

When it comes to sweet treats, many people with food allergies or sensitivities may pass on cakes, cookies, and other confections.

That’s why West El Paso’s Orange Peel Pastries, Cakes, & More is making sure nobody has to skip dessert.

“A lot more people nowadays have allergies, have food problems, and dietary restrictions,” pastry chef Julie Aduato told KTSM. “I wanted to provide something for that group of people.”

The bakery first began offering gluten-free desserts, and later added vegan and sugar-free options.

“I started out slowly because it was all experimental…it was all trial and error,” Aduato said.

Orange Peel Pastries, Cakes, & More is located at 4700 N. Mesa inside the Mesa Norte shopping center.
