Birthday Cake?
0

14 posts in this topic

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.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/simply-delicious-strawberry-cake-recipe/index.html

Have a wonderful birthday :)

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.

That definitely sounds worth trying :)

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.

This sounds promising, and I have coconut flour, yes!!! Nothing like chocolate cake, guess I know what I'm doing on my day off, haha😃

    • It starts as a piercing itch and the skin turns reddish with a few tiny red bumps. Then tiny watery vesicles appear and itch like crazy. The whole process from start to finish is about 3 weeks and the lesions leave a purplish skin tone and scab. I get them on the back side of both knees near the bend.  Sometimes it's just a few scattered vesicles in the same area. I've had Drs say eczema or herpes. My next step is to find a dermatologist familiar with dh. Thanks for the input.
    • DH can look like that but other things can as well. It would help if you described the way it acts/presents. You can get a dh biopsy. Read threads in this section to find out how the biopsy is done correctly. 
    • my celiac was triggered by pregnancy.  had no clue.  symptoms creeped up (started with indigestion, deemed as 'colitis' or 'ibs') but eventually all the ones you mentioned above all joined the party.  sounds like you are headed in the right direction.  one of the points of diagnosis is the reaction to the gluten-free diet.  keep digging.  half the people on here don't have a firm diagnosis (science really needs to catch up with this disease)  and a false negative blood test is fairly common, for whatever reason - if you've not been eating gluten every day for like 8 weeks, it may not detect antibodies, which is what these tests are measuring.  sorry you're having this dilemma!  hope you find some answers.
    • tom & chee!  good to know   they grill the sandwich on a separate pan?  or do you just order soup and salad.  so cool to find more places to eat out!!
    • Hi everybody,  I have had symptoms of Celiac since mid pregnancy and they have gotten worse over the last 5 months post partum. I have constipation, periods stopped, extreme fatigue,  joint pain, weak muscles, dizzyness, migraines, light sensitivity,  pins and needles in hands and feet, elevated TSH, depreason and anxiety. Was put on thyroid meds but it didn't help any of my symptoms. My doctor told me to try gluten free and reintroduce it. I tried it for 2 weeks and started feeling quite a bit better, then reintroduced it and felt worse than ever! It's definitely a gluten problem. She suggested I get the Celiac panel run so I got tested for Ttg iga, DGP igg and EMA all came back NEGATIVE! by this point I had only reintroduced gluten for a few days. She said my antibodies shouldn't go down by much in this time frame. Should I push for a referral to a GI doctor? I don't know why I feel the need for diagnosis? Probably my mother in law laughing when I said I can't eat gluten anymore and she tried to offer me things like donuts, saying it's just a little.  She just doesn't get it. So now, do I suffer for 6 weeks to get the biopsy or just stop eating gluten and be done with it.  I have also noticed while introducing new foods to my baby that he throws up whenever I give him anything wheat based. I doubt they can diagnose a baby and I refuse to damage his intestines for a diagnosis.  Maybe I should get my daughter tested as well? She is 3 and has been complaining of upset tummy and is frequently constipated. She is growing well though but is also quite thin. She is not a big eater. She may be constipated because she holds it. She is afraid to poop on the potty. Since I have had symptoms for only about 10 months, could there not be much damage yet? Sorry for the long post!
