Happy weekend! It’s Saturday and time for a new giveaway to celebrate YOU on Celiac Disease Awareness Month here on Celiacandthebeast.com! Today we’re hosting a very special giveaway with a very personal and amazing prize. Today we’re featuring Kyra Bussanich!
If you don’t know, Kyra has been on Cupcake Wars five times. I feel pretty special knowing someone who has been on the Food Network – but more special because she makes the best gluten-free treats ever. Period. Kyra is like a magical fairy sent to earth to make magical gluten-free food for those of us who must eat different. This magical fairy now has a large cafe in beautiful Lake Oswego (just out side of Portland, OR) that you can check out here.
Kyra also wrote a book called Sweet Cravings – one of the best higher-end dessert books out there for gluten-free living. It’s absolutely beautiful and the recipes in it are spectacular. See what I had to say about the book in my previous review here in my 2013 Holiday Gift Guide (and yes, I still recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful gluten-free gift for the holidays or beyond).
But I know why you are all here – the ooey-gooey drool-worthy cinnamon rolls that she makes. Or maybe you’re here for the doughnuts? I know I know, it’s too early to be talking about such things – especially since it’s really expensive to try to hop on a last-minute flight from Phoenix to Portland. Her shop consistently turns out the best-looking gluten-free baked goods around. Don’t believe me? Check out her gallery. Her menu rotates daily so you’ll always get something new and exciting at Kyra’s Bake Shop.

Now that we’ve drooled over her desserts and we’ve all collectively decided to move to Portland, here’s today’s giveaway! We’re offering the winner one SWEET CRAVINGS cookbook and one Skype/Google+ call with Kyra herself! You’ll be able to ask the secrets of how to make award-winning gluten-free food and come to her with all of your baking questions! This is a really cool giveaway and we’re so happy that Kyra is onboard to help someone learn how to bake like a Cupcake Wars champion!
