My name is Dr Vivien D’Arcy and I am the owner of Darcy’s Delicious Treats and I am a cake maker/designer as well as a Gluten-free food specialist.

Our products are certified Gluten-free and we only make foods that are wheat, gluten, dairy and soya free (egg free if requested).  Everything we make is freezable or keeps for 4 days in an airtight container in the fridge.

Darcy's Delicious Treats has a gluten, dairy and wheat free kitchen.  We only make foods that are vegetarian, wheat-free, gluten-free and dairy-free and all the vegan and egg-free foods are made with separate bowls and utlensils from those that use eggs. We do, however, supply online, tearooms and hotels etc with cakes containing eggs and nuts so please let us know if you cannot have eggs or nuts.

Previously I worked as a scientist in London until May 2011 when I was made redundant.  Having peviously found it difficult to buy tasty cakes and desserts when eating out Darcy's Delicious Treats was set up. Our baking business specialises in baking wheat-free, gluten-free and dairy-free cakes, treats and other specilised foods such as pizza bases and breads.

I understand the frustration of not being able to eat really nice cakes or foods that do not contain wheat, gluten or dairy as I have intolerances to all three!!

So it was decided to set up a business in Essex that makes yummy cakes and foods for all us special people (as well as everyone else, my friends tell me they taste better than “normal” cakes!).  If you want to buy tasty cakes and foods that are wheat-free, gluten-free and dairy-free then please browse my website and place an order or you can discuss anything else related to wheat-free, gluten-free and dairy-free baking, i.e. for ordering desserts or cakes for catering businesses, by telephoning me and I will do my very best to help you.

We can also make Vegan cakes for you.  Just let us know and we will be more than happy to bake them for you!

I hold a level 2 Food and Hygiene certificate and have been inspected by the Environmental Health Office from Braintree District Council, where I was awarded the maximum hygiene rating (5*).


We were finalist in the National Cupcake Competition in London on July 2nd 2012.

Recently we have be selected as a finalist in the New Company category at "The Mid Essex Business Awards" held in Boreham Hall, Boreham Essex on 19th October 2012.

If you need anything else please give me a call 07904 278239 to discuss your needs.

Many thanks,

Vivien
