Emily Sopkowe, the co-owner of the Georgetown bakery in St. John's, says she was hesitant to start creating gluten-free treats at her bakery until the discovery that one of her children was unable to eat gluten.

She said the best place to start is looking up gluten-free recipes before trying to make your own.

Sopkowe offered up some tips for anyone who can't have gluten, but still has a sweet tooth.
