Well, since I didn't actually do anything to prepare.. or take the time to figure out cakes that could be made that are Gluten-free Casein-free.. seems like no birthday cake today!

Guess, I'm fine with that.. though would it be that big of a deal if I just had fun for the day, spoil and posion myself with a nice yummy store bought cake? Oh gawd, then if that's okay.. why not have some yummy fast food for dinner, hehe.

It's not like I'm feeling any better yet anyway.. so wouldn't loose anything, LOL.

Though maybe I'd get to find out if my body has at least gotten use to being Gluten-free Casein-free? LOL

Never really had a reaction to gluten in the past.

Oh well.. something to consider I guess, despite it being so stupid. Just venting, since it'll be like my first birthday without a cake. *pouts*

Happy Birthday, Gluten-free Casein-free comrade! Don't damage your body on your special day, silly. I don't know if you have a health food store in your area...or, my local Kroger carries this product as well..


Pamela's Products chocolate brownie mix is Gluten-free Casein-free and has recipes on the bag to make a cake, brownies, or cookies. My children had some friends over yesterday and they devoured this cake. The other children who hadn't had a Gluten-free Casein-free treat in their life were raving about it. It's so simple, pour out the mix, add one egg, water, and oil. Mix. Pour in pan. Bake!

Happy Birthday..stay healthy, and have a great day!!

Thanks.. Hmmm.. well, didn't see anything for making cakes at the grocery store I went to, last week. They do have a nice gluten-free section. I dunno, if my body was actually feeling better on the diet, I wouldn't even considering it.. but when my body hasn't been considerate enough to start feeling better after 14 weeks being Gluten-free Casein-free.. why should I be nice to it on my Birthday?

Don't see anything to loose. Body never reacted to gluten anyway, and the casein reaction usually lasted a day. So may be a way to find out if my body has gotten use to not having gluten, and will react now? LOL

I most likely won't posion myself, just would be soooo much nicer if things were feeling better, so I'd see an actual reason not too! Hey, my day to be all woe is me, isn't it? =D

Hi,
Happy Birthday to you! I hope you plan on staying on this planet for awhile, because it is always wonderful to learn that one more person has learned that they are Celiac, and to know that they will join forces with those of us who are working so hard to teach our family and friends what being gluten free is all about. We are like an army, really, chosen to spread the good news that those who have experienced sadness, hopelessness, depression, and despair, can rise above the norm and experience happiness, wellness, and joy.
Okay, my birthday is in three days, and I admit that I am a little over 21 (born October 8, 1944 in Escondido, California) but I look forward to celebrating my special day with exuberance and excitement, and with special family members and friends. A cake? Oh yeah, that used to be a part of the day, probably up to 10 years or so ago. Then I chose life over the pleasures involved in eating, and have learned a whole new way of living. Now I anticipate the joy of getting together with two of my lifelong friends, who have invited me to lunch, the movies, then dinner as well.
Sure, I'm going through a divorce, I've had to take a job after I thought I was retired, my dog chewed up my son's wooden blinds yesterday to the tune of $206, one of my friend's office's was broken into and her laptop stolen, her son has diabetes and health problems that we are praying will resolve themselves, and my sister's mother-in-law and my manager's mother died last week, but nevertheless, I know that God is in control, not me, and that He will lead me and guide me as long as I continue to be willing.
A cake? Only if I want to DIE! My symptoms present themselves as asthma, so I go into severe bronchial spasms, which is, really, very fortunate for me I think, because I am instantly convinced that what I just ate will never pass my lips again, if I can avoid that food.
Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you--I hope you eat chicken instead of cake, I know that will do. Always, Welda

Haha down with the glutenoids!

Anyway...

Alexolua im 15 and i never had a reaction either but if you have gluten you are more likely to experience something if you've been on the diet for a while. If you don't feel a thing then your blood levels can get messed up or your intestine inflamed.

On my last birthday I just went out to dinner with my family and had some ice cream. Don't forget McDonalds is gluten free : )

dont do it!!! i am not feeling THAT better yet, but when i ate gluten at a restaurant i felt really bad for a week. it was felt like food poisoning, and considering how nice the restaurant was i dont think it was food poisoning.

bob's red mill makes a gluten-free flour mix...so maybe make a homemade cake using a gluten-free flour mix. i dont know why it wouldnt work. also, i have made pamala's brownies and my son ate the whole batch :o so they must have been good ;)

good luck to you, and happy birthday!!

I agree, don't do it! BTW, Happy Birthday! :)

I had my first birthday in Aug. since going gluten-free. My daughter so kindly made me the gluten-free brownies, with choclate frosting (read the labels!). MmmMmm! The family has been very considerate, as I don't like to bake anymore!

If you'll read my post titled "Amazing" you'll see my reaction to gluten, after being mostly gluten-free for 4+ months. Not really sick, but not well, either.

Alexolua, do you bake? I was given a recipe for a gluten-free pineapple velvet cake that I make into cupcakes for my kids (but it can be a regular cake too.) They like it far better than their former, gluten-full cake that I used to bake for them. I also make these whenever there are potlucks or other get togethers, no one can tell they aren't "regular" and so they're always all eaten. There's really no reason why you should pass up having cake, if you don't want to. Since eating in a gluten-free manner is more a way of eating than a "diet" (except in the dictionary sense, of course, Lol!) you should make it work for you. Something you might not be aware of though, since you say you're rather asymptomatic. Whenever two of my kids (I've three with celiac disease and me too) eat anything with gluten, their emotions go nuts. That's all the indication we have with one son. Poor guy seems to go on an emotional rollercoaster. My other just becomes extremely depressed (but with other obvious reactions.) Take care! :)

Whole Foods just announced its new gluten free bakery. Details: Whole Foods Market opened Whole Foods Market Gluten-Free Bakehouse in Morrisville, NC, the company's first dedicated gluten-free baking facility. The new 8,000-sq. ft. facility will produce 27 products, including breads, cookies, scones, biscuits, pizza crusts, whole pies and brownies, to meet the needs of the increasing number of customers whose diets require gluten-free foods.

Maybe next year you can enjoy a cake you can trust.

Happy belated birthday.

Here's the cake recipe. It was given to me by another online friend (so the comments are hers.) I haven't tried it in regular cake mode, so I haven't made the glaze yet. Though, it sounds really good!

Pineapple Velvet Cake

2 1/2 c. gluten-free flour mix (1-1/2 c rice flour, 2/3 c potato flour, 1/3 c tapioca flour)
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. xanthan gum
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
4 eggs
1 c. canola oil (I sometimes use a little less and substitute the rest w/ natural applesauce)
1 2/3 c. sugar (you can use a tiny bit less--comes out fine)
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1 c. unsweetened pineapple juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine first five ingredients and set aside.

With an electric mixer, blend eggs, oil, sugar, and lemon juice. Beat well so oil is completely emulsified and the mixture is light and lemony looking.

Turn beater to low, and add flour mixture and pineapple juice, alternating.

Pour batter into greased and floured tins. Bake for 25-30 minutes for cake pans; 15-20 minutes for cupcakes. Watch carefully -- I remove when the edges are just getting lightly browned and a sharp knife comes out *almost* completely clean when inserted. It's easy to overbake this cake.

Pineapple Glaze

3 Tbsp. pineapple juice
1 1/2 c. confectioner's sugar

Whisk powdered sugar into very hot juice. Pour over cooled cake set on wire rack.
