Celiac.com 11/06/2017 - Gluten-free Starbucks patrons in South Florida just got a nice piece of news. Starbucks is now offering a new, gluten-free cupcake to select South Florida locations. Oh, and the cupcake also happens to be vegan.

To deliver their newest gluten-free offering, Starbucks has partnered with Miami-based bakery, Bunnie Cakes, who will provide their locally made, gluten-free, and vegan passionfruit cupcakes to select Starbucks stores in the area.

Bunnie Cakes has been a labor of love since owner, Mariana Cortez, first began making gluten-free and treats for two of her children, who have celiac disease.

The small, nearly bite-sized cupcakes have been called 'cute,' but they have gained a popular following among gluten-free eaters, and are regarded by many as "one of the best cupcakes in Miami," Starbucks wrote in a press release.

Bunnie Cakes' products have also attracted a bit of national attention, such as being named as a winner on Food Network's Cupcake Wars.

If you live in South Florida, or if you find yourself visiting, and happen find yourself enjoying Bunnie Cakes gluten-free cupcakes, either at Starbucks, or at the bakery itself, we encourage you to share your experience in our comments section.

Before making the minimal effort to offer gluten-free food options, Starbucks needs to remove gluten from their coffee products, specifically contained in the cocoa used.

I would not buy anything from Starbucks! Their values are NOT my values and I have decided to take a stand in my old age.

Congratulations to Mariana! Wonderful to see Starbucks trying again - their last experiment with providing GF options was short lived and incomplete. Perhaps this time it will last.

It would be good if the manufacturers of gluten-free products could find a substitute for yeast and egg as these are gluten cross-reactors. Those responsible for the creation of "modern wheat" through hybridization created a "monster" of allergic and immunological food reactions/responses. Society must move away from wheat, barley and rye consumption as these grains destroy good health.
