Operating under a cottage food license, Luaces makes cakes, doughnuts, turnovers, and more out of her own home. She relies on seasonal ingredients from local farmers to create eye-catching, gluten-free pastries that come in unique flavors—think turmeric-infused golden milk doughnuts and peach tarts with a pecan-hyssop (an herb in the mint family) crust and hyssop meringue.
