Gluten Free Wedding Cakes In Kansas City?
0

11 posts in this topic

Hi all,

It's been quite some time since I've posted here, but I'm needing a little bit of help. I'm getting married and therefore need a gluten free wedding cake. The problem is I'm getting married in a city (Kansas City) I have never lived in, so I'm not sure where to start hunting for a gluten free cake. Any suggestions would be very, very much appreciated. Also, it need not be in Kansas City. My fiance has family coming from all over Kansas, and my brother lives on the Missouri side, so we could work something out.

Much thanks!

Heather

Here's a few places to start. These are the main gluten-free bakers in town. I would email them. Even if they don't do wedding cakes they may know who does. I'll look around some more, so check back in a couple of days.

Do you have anyone coming from St Louis, Columbia, or Wichita?

Andrea's Bakery in St. Charles (St. Louis) is a gluten free bakery. There is also a gluten-free bakery in Jefferson City (www.myglutenfreebakery.com). I haven't been to KC recently, so I'm not very familiar with the gluten free options there.

Here's another -

95th Street Hy-Vee

11552 West 95th Street

Overland Park, Kansas

913-894-1983

They use the Betty Crocker mixes. They also make alot of gluten things so I'm not sure this would be my first choice.

I put this question out to a KC group & I'm posting as I hear from them.

Oh my goodness! Thanks so much for all the tips! I'll have to do some sampling when I'm in Kansas City!

I think most everyone will be coming from the Kansas direction rather than Missouri. My sister-in-law works in Wichita and I think some of the guests might have to drive through there.

I have the name of a lady who makes them at home ( I think). Her whole family is gluten-free. Trying to find out how you would talk with her. Stay tuned!

I was going to suggest the place that makes gluten-free pizza crust for Waldo pizza, but I see that it was already in Kareng's list - Olivia's Oven. I have never been there, but I think they are in the metro KC area (Kansas side) and they do have a picture of a wedding cake on their website.

good luck!

Sorry I can't help, as I live in Iowa. But, after seeing your dachshund, I had to say hello! I am owned by Ozzy, a mini long-hair.

Not sure how formal you are going but this is the cake I am making for making for my 35th birthday party next week.

Fun cake!

It can be dressed up or down and it's cute.

    • Research Celiac Ataxia for potential diagnosis. Look at Milk and dairy for potential head and sinus related issues.  I stopped dairy and I can breathe now! Saturated fat may also be a problem, but it's mostly dairy!
    • It is best not to try and do this on your own. Talk to your allergist. Not all will deal with food intolerances but if yours doesn't find one who will.  Mine had me fill out a very detailed diet questionaire and tested for true allergies before he gave me my starting point. I will admit I wasn't real happy with my starting point since none of my usual foods were on it. He said that I was most likely to react to foods I ate the most so most of the 5 I either rarely ate or didn't really like. The prescribed starting point he formulated was designed to make sure I had adaquate nutrition and enough calories.   It took about 2 weeks before a lot of my tummy issues resolved and I was then able to start adding foods in one at a time for a week before moving on to the next.  He said food intolerance reactions can take up to a week to show up so I had to be sure it was a full week between food additions. I did have to call three offices before I found a doctor who could do the formulation of the diet but this guy truely saved my life. Out of all the doctors I had seen, including specialists in big hospitals, he was the one responsible for finally realizing I was celiac. He of course referred me back to my clueless GI doctor who confirmed the diagnosis by almost killing me with a gluten challenge. I should note that some of my intolerance (not gluten of course) did resolve after I had healed. Even dairy which I hadn't been able to have for years! I hope you can get some answers and are able to heal soon.
    • I'm 43 years old. I'm married and have two teen daughters. After all these years it was one of my daughters who tonight said to me: "you probably have Celiac disease" after hearing my wife and I talking about all the pimples I always get on my arms. I never heard of the disease but I have heard about a lot of people having gluten allergies and didn't know they were the same thing. So I started looking it up on the internet. Turns out I have had all the symptoms all my life and no one has ever said anything about it possibly being Celiac disease. When I was a kid my doctor gave me prescriptions to antibacterial soaps to use for the arm pimples. Hibitane I think was one of them. And I've always had swollen looking ankles as long as I can remember. All my life people have noticed it. As a kid and teen I played lot's of sports and have broken my ankles and sprained them so my mom and I brushed it off at that and so did my family doctor when I was young.  But I always thought it was weird that the swelling continued all these years.  I have had a bloated feeling stomach all my life too and chronic diarrhea. My stomach is always hard and swollen feeling. Not ever knowing what that stuff was related too so I have never mentioned the bloat or diarrhea to a doctor. Just kind of embarrassing I guess. As my wife and I were reading about Celiac Disease on the internet together tonight she pointed out to me that that's probably why these symptoms almost all went away when I did a very low carb diet for about a year straight to lose weight a couple years ago. I had solid bowel movements, no bloat, ankle swelling went down but I thought the improvements were from weight loss and just eating healthier . But perhaps in reality it probably had a lot more to do with not eating all the wheat products/gluten products. So tomorrow I will be seeing my doctor to talk to him about it and to ask for the blood tests. I have read that I should continue eating gluten though until my testing is done. So that is crappy but I guess it's better to know for sure. Something else I think I should point out too is that I get headaches quite a bit after having big meals. Now I am thinking that may have something to do with the gluten too. I have read that some people with Celiac also get headaches with the other symptoms. It's great to see there is a forum like this to help people out with these issues. If I test positive for Celiac I will for sure be following this forum closely for advice and diet/nutrition help.

    • Below is copied & pasted from this thread:   My celiac doctor is Dr. Syed Jafri, in Webster, TX (just south of Houston -- basically the Clear Lake City area), saved my LIFE.  I would recommend him to the whole, entire world.  I was desperately ill, and am still struggling, and he's a wonderful, sweet man who listens and is very proactive in helping you solve whatever problems you're having.  I wish all doctors were like him.  I have to fight and struggle with too many doctors to just listen to me and what I live with, day in and day out.  He's not like that.  Good luck to you.     There are recommendations on this thread too:
