Ms Evans said: ‘My dad was diagnosed with celiac disease about 10 years ago and was so upset trying products from supermarkets which then weren’t a massive range. The range they had had no moisture and was dry.

“Over the past 10 years I have developed a good range of good quality desserts and cakes that are as close to the real taste as possible to give more options to people with celiac disease.

“It is important to me that celiacs can get good products that taste good and have a choice.

“Cream puffs that I haven’t seen in any supermarket in my area, and that’s the type of product I can supply.”

Mrs. Evans has expressed her love for baking and has acquired qualifications in the kitchen.

“All of my products, gluten-free or not, are all handmade. I’ve used quality ingredients and the recipes I use are all my own which I’ve worked hard to develop for years,” she said.

Dessert Queen is sourcing on a pickup-and-delivery basis – pre-orders and daily produce are also available.
