As of the moment, no. We are looking into how we can adjust some of our recipes to make them gluten-free.
8. We get the "cakes" part of your name, but what about the "crafts"?
So happy you asked. Before we joined up to become DC Designs, my partner and I were doing our own things. One of us did the baking and jewelry, while the other did fine art and graphics. Together we have combined our talents and motivate one-another to push beyond our comfort zones in hopes of bring more unique products.
9. What other custom things do you do?
We do custom jewelry, hats, arts and crafts. Basically, if it's type of product we stock, more than likely we can do a custom version for. Much of the limitation apply to the artwork pieces such as custom bookmarks and buttons.
