We’ve all grown more than one sweet tooth during quarantine––so we’re here to help you with that sugar craving. San Diego dessert shops are offering desserts for delivery or curbside pick-up, so you can treat yourself and your family to all sorts of delights. From DIY ice cream sandwich kits to fresh-baked donuts to decadent cake and exquisite cupcakes, read on for how to get the goods delivered to your front door or your car door.

The Gluten Free Baking Co.

Founded by San Diegan Roanna Canete, the newly opening Gluten Free Baking Co. offers gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan dessert boxes for pickup or curbside delivery at three spots in San Diego. Grab a dessert box filled with cream puffs, donuts, lemon bars, lava cakes, cupcakes, churros and other goodies. Even more, add-in fresh baked breads and if you’re short on non-latex gloves, toilet paper, and paper towels, (like most of us) you can add those items to your order too. Also, be on the look-out for Special Saturday Drive-thru treats posted on the website.

Mark your calendars because:

The week of Apr. 27th is Celebrate Cake Week. The shop will be filled with a variety of cakes and cupcakes in every imaginable flavor and decoration.  Whether it's your quarantine birthday, anniversary, or you just love cake, this week is for YOU!

The week of  May 4th is Celebrate Mom Week. The shop will be filled with fun treats for you to enjoy with your mom. Order a Mother’s Day Brunch Box for pickup on Saturday so you can make her breakfast on Mother’s Day.
