I'm gluten and lactose intolerant.

My birthday is coming up. I'm inviting a couple of friends over (3 or 4) for a slumber party (I'm 14). I wanna do a birthday cake but I'm not sure what to do. My mom wants to make a normal cake and buy me a gluten free cupcake.

I dont wanna do that. Does anyone have a good gluten free/milk free cake recipe? That's good?

Should I make It from scratch or use Betty Crocker mix? I don't wanna have to go out and buy guar gum and xanthum gum and stuff. So is a cake mix my best bet?

Should I make a cupcake for everyone? Or should I just make cake?

Our family gluten-free and gluten eaters all ask for the one of these birthday cakes.

Bob's Red Mill Chocolate Cake - it calls for milk, but we have used rice milk depending on who's going to eat it. I also add 1 cup of chocolate chips to the mix to make it extra chocolaty. -- This one works great as double layer cake or cupcakes - I generally make a fudgy frosting, but my kids also like when I add a touch of peppermint extract to white frosting.

Paula Dean's Strawberry Cake - this one we use Betty Crocker's gluten-free Yellow cake mix as a substitute for reg cake mix. I have made the cream cheese frosting it calls for, but have also just added pureed strawberries to other frostings - again depending on whose allergies/intolerances I'm working around. http://www.foodnetwo...cipe/index.html

Have a wonderful birthday :)

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

Gluten Free Pantry also makes good cake mixes. I really like the chocolate. If you want to have a good homemade pizza that all will like their French Bread Mix makes a really good crust. It is a sticky dough so it has to be spread but even the gluten eaters I have given it to like it.

Ok thanks :) ya I'm gonna try Betty Crocker.

And I was thinking Mexican food for dinner. Corn tortillas and flour tortillas if people want.

Oh do you think I should make cake or cupcakes? It would be cool if people could decorate their own cupcakes right?

When I want cake I use the Betty Crocker gluten-free chocolate mix and add 1 can of Sprite Zero to it, nothing else! Mix and bake. Times are the same as the box for the most part, and I use the Betty Crocker frosting, rainbow chip was the latest obsession haha sooooooo yummy...

Glutino has a chocolate cake which is just heavenly, and can be easily adjusted to be made dairy-free.

Sage, I am 34 and I will tell you that there is no such thing as too old for cupcakes! The idea of cupcakes and decorating your own is great. Heck, then you could even have more than one kind of frosting too for whatever makes people happiest.

Never too old for cupcakes! I'm 30 and prefer them over cake! Lol just made some a few months ago with "tie dyed" frosting, so fun!

Cherrybrook Kitchen makes a pretty good cake mix that can be made easily dairy-free. They also make a frosting mix (don't buy the pre-made stuff, just the mix) that can be made dairy free (all products are inherently dairy free, but you add the milk you want - rice milk, almond milk, etc. ). The frosting requires butter/margarine, which you could make dairy -free.

I always do the Vanilla Bean cake from the Spunky Coconut (www.spunkycoconut.com) for my son. Always a hit.

I have one cake recipe. It goes for every birthday.

Chocolate cake
1 C. Hershey's Cocoa
1 and 1/2 C. Sugar
2 C. Coconut Flour
1 C. Butter
1/2 C. Coconut oil
1 and 1/2 tsp baking soda
9 eggs
1 and 1/2 C. milk or milk substitute like almond milk or hemp milk.
1 tsp. vanilla
Dash salt.

I just dump it all together and beat the heck out of it.
(They say to alternate wet and dry ingredients and to beat after each egg but I never do.)
Bake 350 for 45 min to an hour. til tooth pick comes out clean.
They say eggs should be room temp but I don't bother.
