Starbucks To Offer Gluten Free Cake

How happy was I to find out that Starbucks has been listening to customer ideas submitted via MyStarbucksIdea.com and will be offering gluten free cakes starting May 5th? 

I go to Starbucks because it's convenient and every time I stand in line I wistfully gaze at the pastry case wishing I could get one of the calorie laden treats. According to Forbes, "The pastry, called Valencia Orange Cake, will be made with seven ingredients which are all 100 percent gluten-free, the company said. The cake will be sold in individually wrapped packages for $2.25 each and will be available beginning May 5."

I'm not a huge fan of orange flavored pastries, but I'm not going to look a gift horse in the mouth.  Here's hoping that they decide to expand their line of gf treats very soon!
