Yes there are gluten-free cakes. The best I've tried is The Really Great Food Company Chocolate Cake Mix. This is also dairy free.

But as your b-day is monday, you should probably try to make one from scratch, as you don't have time to make an online order. Do you have gluten-free flour? Rice flour and potato starch is a typical blend for gluten-free cakes. They also tend to use more eggs and cook at a lower temp than gluten cakes. I have ruined cakes by baking them at the recommended 350 degrees. I have found that 325 works much better and I add an extra 10 minutes or so to the baking time. Otherwise they are gummy in the center. Yuck!

Here is a link to the Yellow Cake topic in the baking & recipes forum.

You can usually find potato starch in the Kosher food section of most supermarkets. But you can also find it at healthfood stores and online. Potato starch is different than potato flour. The starch is what is used most often, so be careful not to get the potato flour. If it says potato starch flour then that means it is potato starch.

God bless,

Mariann :)

I actually make a flour mix that includes potato starch flour AND potato flour (and tapioca flour, and brown rice flour and white rice flour...basically everything I can find).

I think that the Gluten-Free Pantry mixes are pretty good -- my favorite is actually the chocolate chip cookie/cake mix, following the directions for the cake.

Here's a flourless recipe that's just incredible:

in heatproof bowl in pan of simmering water, melt 6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate with 3 tablespoons water or coffee and 1 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla.

meanwhile separate 6 eggs and beat the whites into soft peaks.

    • I figured I would update those who were wondering.  I have gotten the appt. so far moved up to August 30. I am waiting to have gene testing done via swab for all 3 of my kiddos tomorrow. My daughters celiac antibodies came up negative but her IgA is low which the ped said could cause false negative antibodies for celiac so she will need to see a GI dr. also. The pediatrician is going to call the GI to try to get them in sooner. I am keeping them all on a gluten diet until the GI dr. decides what to do. I am on the cancellation list already for my son, however I am not going to be persistent with my phone calls to them until I have the results of the gene test. I really want that result in my hand before going to the GI dr if I can. Maybe if he is positive, along with his bloodwork and my history they can forgo the endoscopy. But he will eat gluten till then.  My husband and I have been very honest and upfront with him as to what is going on and the possibility of the endoscopy and what that entails and although scared in general he seems ok after assuring him that since I have it he has me to help him every step of the way.  Going through his current diet with him I realized that he is truly on such a low gluten diet that I am actually surprised his bloodwork shows antibodies at all!  So I told him to make a list of allllll the gluten he could possibly think of eating and he needs to pound it until the GI visit or endoscopy. Funny thing is everything he keeps thinking of to want to eat...is already gluten free!  The other night we were at a friends and he asked if he could be done with his hotdog. I made him finish just the bread 😂 Thanks for your help and advise and I will keep y'all posted on both kids!  My oldest is a ok as far as all his antibodies. Just actually had a follow up for other immune issues and all his levels are now normal!
    • I like your plan Cara, I may have to include it in my sons.    Poor little guy is still very very sick. I think he is resisting and cheating, despite having the support of two other siblings and a 100% gluten-free home. 
    • Despite it being a nightmare, I did wait for my kids to get biopsies. At one point I had one severely ill child gluten-free and two more waiting having to eat it. It was worth the wait though and I think long term a biopsy may be worthwhile, especially for school. I have already had issues with schools and camps so having a firm diagnosis has been helpful. 
    • Knowing that the reaction to gluten in celiacs is an uncalled for immune system reaction, I was thinking of how a cure would be possible. Maybe a medicine that somehow turns off the immune system. The only thing that i've heard do that... HIV.  obviously that's way worse than celiac. Just some food for thought.
    • Well, you can probably get an apple or something.  You might be able to get someone to boil you some eggs.  But be careful of things like nuts that should be naturally gluten free.  They have almost always been soaked in a flavor solution that usually containes caramel coloring, "soy" (wheat) sauce and other aditives.  If I am really hungry and must eat in a Chinese restaurant, I order plain white rice and steamed vegetables.  But even so, you must monitor it carefully.  The rice sometimes has other substances added to give it a better texture, and very often the vegetables have in fact had "just a little bit" of soy sauce added.  To be fair, celiac disease is hardly ever found in East Asians, so understandably people are not tuned it to it.  Also, culturally, with the exception of fruits, it is generally thought that the flavor of foods needs to be enhanced, so it is had to find anything natural even in the "western" gorceries. Even in the western restaurants, be careful.  Fish and meat and often vegetables are usually pre-marinated. I will not even attempt to address the issue of cross-comtamination, since that is a whole higher order of things. I do know what I am talking about; I have celiac and have worked here for nearly 7 years.
