Cake, Coffee + Tea
Sweet Laurel is a whole foods baking company, meaning, no filler, no weird stuff. Just the best organic,
whole ingredients going into delicious grain-free, dairy-free, and refined sugar-free baked goods.
This is indulgent, healthful food with a body positive perspective. It’s about loving the food you
eat instead of punishing yourself for craving it. All of our treats are paleo, and with keto and
vegan options as well. Most of the items are made with less than five ingredients, and none
of them are the wacky gums and stabilizers you’ll find in most gluten free or dairy free products.
We love few things more than a perfect slice of cake, so we only put the fewest, best ingredients in our baked goods.

baking treats for her family and friends she couldn’t touch, she finally said,
“enough is enough” and started tinkering with the ingredients she could eat.
When she shared her grain-free and refied sugar-free goods with friends,
they were blown away.
Sweet Laurel’s baked goods were tender and moist and full of flavor.
They were the opposite of the pasty, brick-like gluten free and vegan goods that
her friends had been used to eating. Excited by their reactions and encouragement,
Laurel turned her test kitchen into Bakery so that everyone can
enjoy healthful, simple treats.

behind The Kitchy Kitchen, knew she was tasting something special when
Laurel brought over one of her cakes. With her mouth full, she asked if she
could partner with Laurel to form the brand. Claire and Laurel’s
shared love of old fashioned cooking, Los Angeles history, and blush colored
roses has led to a business founded in friendship. They believe that the best
foods are prepared simply, and with the best ingredients. Claire works as Sweet
