A Kosher Bakery that Goes Against the Grain


Shabtai Kosher Gluten-Free Bakery and SweetsShabtai Kosher Gluten-Free Bakery and SweetsWoodmere, NY ~ Shabtai Gourmet is a unique Gluten Free bakery line specializing in, Gluten Free, Lactose Free, Soy Free, Casein Free, and Dairy Free cakes & cookies. In 2002 Cindy Fern Itzkowitz established Cinderella Sweets, and started baking her sweet treats. Cindy has brought a fresh and exciting new approach to gluten free & other allergen free cake production & marketing. “All bakers use and have the same ingredients available, and all have very similar recipes,” Cindy says, “but very few bakers have the creativity, patience, and talent to turn an ordinary pound of ingredients into an exquisitely crafted pound of scrumptious cake. We know what it takes to apply a small bakery’s quality control, in a mass production environment …

Nothing is overlooked at Shabtai Gourmet. Careful selection of premium quality ingredients, quality control production, packaging details, customer service, and on time shipping are all a reflection of Cindy’s’ 20 years of experience in the baking industry.

Consumer response to the Shabtai Gourmet brand for the last 5 years has been so positive, that store managers find that Shabtai products fly off valuable retail shelf space as soon as they are put on display. Letters & E-mails arrive almost daily to Cinderella’s offices from those suffering from food allergens, raving about the quality of the Cakes & Cookies. Shabtai Gourmet offers a wide array of Sugar Free, Gluten Free, Lactose Free, Fat Free, and low carb baked goods.
