good article, though there were some things in there that made me sad, like her mentioning that she can not have a homemade birthday cake? That's just not true!!! Can I get ahold of this girl and tell her about Pamela's deluxe brownie mix that you can make a cake with???

Great article! I had the same reaction you did Nini - no birthday cake - that's so not true. I just had a birthday a few weeks ago and had a wonderful gluten-free cake.

every year since my dx and my daughter's we have had the most MAAAAHHHVELOUS birthday cakes... I've even served cakes and cupcakes at her preschool that got RAVE reviews from everyone... all the kids begged for more and all the adults in the building just HAD to have the most delicious moistest cake they'd ever tried!!!! LOL And I almost always use Pamela's Brownie mix and follow the directions on the bag to make it into a cake. My other fave cake is The Gluten Free Pantry's Old Fashioned Cake and Cookie mix... makes awesome white cakes and sugar cookies.

I can't have sugar so Pamela's cakes aren't for me. My favorite gluten-free sugar free recipe for cake is the Harvest Muffins in "Wheat-Free, Gluten-Free Cookbook for Kids and Busy Adults" by Connie Sarros. It is wonderful. Everytime it's made I have to fight my family and friends to get a piece (I'm the only gluten-free person). :lol:

I had the same response--What? No birthday cake?! Her typical days' meals look a little bleak to me too. Maybe she is picky, though like my kids. Jeeeez, even a pie with a meringue crust or something like that! Great article, though. McD's are trying hard to cover their butts with all this "double-speak", huh? I seriously smell major law suits and I'm not even a lawyer.
