My Son's Bday Party Is Tomorrow...
0

16 posts in this topic

My son's bday party is tomorrow. I got the gluten-free cake under control, got gluten-free snacks. I forgot I need to decorate this cake lol

Does anyone have a good and quick icing recipe that is suitable for tinting and piping? Oh, and is food coloring gluten-free?

If you don't have time you could always use Betty Crocker frosting. If it is gluten free it will be on the label. I don't worry about food coloring. Have a great birthday party!!

My boys and their friends thought M&Ms on the plain icing (whaterever color) was the best looking cake they had seen! Cake and candy! Just sprinkle the M&Ms on while the icing is its softest.

I use a takeoff of the Wilton's Buttercream frosting. My recipe is something like this:

1 cup solid vegetable shortening (Crisco)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon butter extract (or sub in an additional teaspoon of vanilla extract)

6 cups confectioners' sugar

pinch of salt

enough milk to get to the consistency you want (can use water if you need to avoid milk)

I measure everything half-a$$ed . . . it's very forgiving . . . oops, added too much liquid? then add more powdered sugar.

In reality, I probably use twice as much extract as what I have listed. If you want the very white icing, then you need to use the clear extracts. If you want intense/deep colors, you should use paste type coloring.

Wilton makes the clear vanilla and clear butter extracts/flavorings. Their paste colors and extracts/flavorings are gluten free and can be purchased at places like Wal-Mart, Micheal's, and JoAnn's. All three locations have "Wilton" sections.

Thanks! I'm really proud of how it looks. I hope it tastes ok. This will be my first ever gluten-free baking. I did almost booboo though. Apparently walmart brand cooking spray has flour in it. Good thing I checked! I had heard cooking sprays are fine, but apparently just Pam original

Wow! Great Job. My now 17 year old son was Buzz's biggest fan for almost 5 years - wore his Buzz costume every day it wasn't in the wash for a good six months after his third Halloween.

Have a wonderful party - your son is very lucky boy.

Nicely done!!!

Don't be offended when they just eat the icing and leave a lot of cake . . . that has nothing to do with gluten/gluten-free cake and everything to do with kids love icing :lol:

That does look great! I agree about the icing too lol, I think this year was the first year that kids were eating the cake and not just the icing, they were all 7 to 10 years of age so a little older than kids in previous years.

Not only did they eat it...I got compliments!! The adults said it was awesome and the kids loved that the cake was purple and green. It was heavy but moist. Almost like a pound cake heavy. I'm assuming that is from using rice flour instead of wheat.

    • I would suggest you test your daughter through a doctor. The Enterolab tests are not recognized as accurate or reliable by the medical profession. See this link from the Chicago Celiac Disease Center: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
    • Sorry.  Something is wonky with either my connection or celiac.com! Your results are not specific...borderline.    That is why your PCP should refer you to a GI for further celiac blood tests and a possible endoscopy.  I recognize the lab report form.  Kaiser?  If so, a PCP can not order a full celiac panel.  Only a GI can do so.  Why bother?  Because if you test like me, the TTG tests are always negative.  Request the EMA and the DGPS test via a GI.   Do not be fooled by a lack of abdominal symptoms.  I was only anemic -- no abdominal issues at all.  Constipation is a symptom.  Your PCP is thinking is just historical Classic celiac disease symptoms.   Please email your doctor for the referral if you think you might have celiac disease and want a solid answer.    
    • Hello, I have frequent canker sores (roughly comes back every couple of months). Some blood test results are as following. Component Your Value Standard Range TISSUE TRANSGLUTAMINASE IgG 0.31 Index <=0.90 Index Tissue transglutaminase IgA 0.96 Index <=0.90 Index My doctor said that result is unspecific, and I unlikely have celiac disease, since I do not have other abdominal symptoms. For reference, I do have frequent constipation, excessive gas, frequent canker sore, etc. Do you think an upper endoscopy is recommended? I am a little hesitate considering the risk of this procedure and the fact that my symptoms are not that bad. I appreciate all suggestions.  
    • Hello, I see you posted this a long while ago, and perhaps--I hope-- it's no longer a matter of concern, but I thought I'd mention that shortly before I was diagnosed for celiac's, I had distinct yellow blotches on the corners of my eyelids toward my nose. Some months after I had stopped eating gluten, the yellow gradually went away, and--as it just reappeared now several years later, I googled the issue again.  I am only speculating here, but I do believe it is related to liver problems, which, in turn, are related to celiac's. I don't think liver function tests cover all aspects of liver health. I say this because when I was pregnant I developed a temporary liver condition called interhepatic colestasis of pregnancy (ICP), but my liver function tests had been fine. (The condition is diagnosed based on bile levels in the blood, not on liver function). I discovered upon some research that (of course!) ICP  can be associated with celiac's disease.  My hunch is this-- that celiac's presents two problems to the liver: 1) the malabsorption of nutrients--esp. Vit. K2-- that are vital liver health; 2) since gluten registers as a toxin to the immune system (I think?), perhaps the liver gets overloaded processing so much toxic material. Or perhaps there's some other reason. At any rate, poor liver health and celiac's do seem to be linked, according to a few articles I've found. Anyway, hope your problems are resolved now.
