“When life gives you lemons, make lemon curd”, perhaps I misquoted a tad, however, that is the philosophy behind The Happy Tart. I discovered I was gluten intolerant while attending the Professional Pastry Arts program at L’Academie de Cuisine. Instead of dropping out I was determined to discover a way to make French Pastries and Cakes Gluten Free.

I spent a year researching and baking and tasting and researching again, to come up with gluten free French pastries and Cakes. My staff uses French baking techniques to make the best tasting and most beautiful pastries and cakes. We believe that every Bride and Groom should have a beautiful and delicious wedding cake on their wedding day. One that they and their guests can all enjoy. We meet with each couple at the bakery to design the cake of their dreams. Give us a call today at 571-244-3662 to set up a tasting appointment! Read less

My husband and I absolutely loved working with Happy Tart. From the tasting to the final product, Emma was fantastic to work with the final result was AMAZING! I had an idea of what I wanted for the wedding cake, chatted about it with Emma, and she made it come to life in the most perfect way possible. The cake was absolutely delicious and our guests were wowed with how beautiful it was. I would whole-heartedly recommend Happy Tart to anyone who is interested in a great cake at a great price.

It's gluten-free and absolutely delicious and I mean that. It was flavorful and moist, just how any dessert should be.

I got married on Saturday, 9/3 (Labor Day Weekend) and I had Happy Tart create a cake and all the desserts for my dessert table. It was fabulous. Everyone loved it, even the ones who were skeptical about gluten-free desserts. With my sweet tooth, the cake and desserts were very important to me and Happy Tart didn't let me down.

Emma was very accommodating and creative when it came to my cake and desserts so if I had to do it all again, I would in a second.

We had a small cake made for our wedding a few weeks ago and could not be more pleased with how it turned out. Emma was able to purchase fresh flowers from the farmers market to decorate with, which were just stunning. Most importantly, the cake was delicious and all our guests enjoyed it!

Emma Cech, of The Happy Tart in Falls Church, has created a remarkable French Patisserie that happens to be completely gluten free. Being Celiac, we had used The Happy Tart before, but the wedding cake tasting exceeded our expectations by far. There is a cute tasting room, where Emma paraded small samples of decorated cakes with all of the various flavors that were so great because of her use of real ingredients, like buttercream frosting and melted chocolate. Just tell Emma what your vision is and she will over deliver! She impressed the staff of the Comus Inn, our venue, with the very professional delivery of the cake and they made sure that we heard about it. The cake was gluten free, as is everything in The Happy Tart, and was decorated with remarkably life-like sugar flowers. No one could believe that the cake could be so good and be gluten free, but it was.

My wedding cake was dainty, decadent, and DELICIOUS! It's hard to find tasty gluten-free foods, but my fiance and I knew we hit the jackpot during our tasting with The Happy Tart. The tradition is to freeze slices of your cake and enjoy it all over again on your 1 year anniversary -- we don't know if we can hold out that long :-)

The cake was amazing. 3 people in the wedding party were gluten free, including the bride, but no one at the reception had a clue the cake was gluten free. The sugar hydrangea's on the cake were beautiful and the cake design was just as I had pictured! I couldn't have asked for more!

The Happy Tart created a beautiful, allergen-friendly wedding cake for our reception. No one had the slightest clue that they were eating a gluten free cake, everyone loved it. The cake tasting process was very pleasant, there were plenty of options for all kinds of tastes so plenty of room to be creative. They were very responsive to some changes in schedule, and delivery was smooth. Don't forget to visit them for pastries and their amazing quiche (my favorites) too.

We love The Happy Tart!!! I am gluten free and so a traditional wedding cake wasn't possible for our wedding and we didn't want our guests to have to eat GF, so we ordered our wedding cake through Happy Tart -- our go-to for cupcakes and GF pastries in Alexandria. The tasting was awesome, Emma is super creative and flexible. We loved our cake and can't wait to eat it again!!! Highly recommend.
