    Inspired by Happiness Gluten-Free Dreamin' of Chocolate Black & White Chocolate Layer Cake

    Just when I thought that nothing in the gluten-free realm of products could surprise me anymore, I was lucky enough to get in the mail a frozen Inspired by Happiness Gluten-Free Dreamin’ of Chocolate Black & White Chocolate Layer Cake, which led to one of the most wonderful gluten-free experiences that I've had in a long time!

    Cakerie Gluten-Free Black & White Chocolate Layer CakeFrom the moment I laid eyes on this cake I was impressed. So much so that I decided to serve it for dessert at a friend's dinner party—even though I had never before tasted it. In the gluten-free world this can be a risky proposition—especially when most of the guests attending were not on a gluten-free diet.

    When dessert was finally served my friend was surprised to see a piece in front of me, because he assumed that it wasn't gluten-free (again, it just looked too good!). After he found out that it was gluten-free he seemed let down...but after one bite it was clear that this cake was beyond good—it was simply astonishing!

    As you can tell by the picture, this is a very rich chocolate cake. There are generous amounts of white and dark chocolate throughout, and the cake is incredibly moist and held together perfectly. It also wasn't too sweet tasting, which made the white and dark chocolate flavors really stand out.

    After this experience it is clear to me that Inspired by Happiness cakes are perfect for any special occasion, including dinner parties, birthdays and weddings.

    Ingredients:
    2 ½ cups gluten-free flour mix
    ½ cup butter melted
    ¾ cup milk

    1/3 cup sugar
    1 tbsp cinnamon
    Mixture #2
    ½ cup sugar
    ¾ cup butter (6 tablespoons)
    Directions:
    Mix mixture #1 in bowl or baggie; set aside.
    Melt butter in mixture #2 and stir in sugar. Bring to a boil and boil two to three minutes and set aside.
    Mix biscuit mix with melted butter until blended; stir in milk, mix until blended. Turn out on floured surface (waxed paper works well) and kneed a few times. Roll out (or press out with hands) about 3/8" thick and cut into 1 ½" squares. Does not have to be exact as this only makes making the monkey balls easier. Roll into balls about 1" round. Roll in mixture #1 and place in greased loaf pan.
    Pour remaining sugar over monkey cake in loaf pan; pour mixture #2 over all and bake at 350F for 30 minutes. Turn out on plate immediately upon removing from the oven. Let cool at bit and enjoy.
    Loaf pan measurers 4 ½” x 8 ½” top measure and 3 ½” x 7 ½” bottom measure.

    Celiac.com 01/15/2010 - King Cakes are used to select Mardi Gras Kings and Queens as well as to celebrate the season in households and at parties across the country. King Cakes have many looks, the most classic being a crown shaped pastry dotted with the sugared colors of Carnival: purple, gold and green.  Some have fillings, others do not, though they all house a hidden trinket like a plastic (formerly porcelain) baby.
    The trinket hidden inside each cake adds to its popularity, although the uninitiated often fail to recognize that finding the trinket inside your piece of cake may come not only with privileges (good fortune and/or becoming the King or Queen of the ball) but just as often with responsibilities (bringing the next cake!). 
    Make sure the next person to bring a King Cake to your party brings this one so everyone can enjoy it!

    Gluten-Free King Cake Recipe

    ¼ cup warm water (110 F)
    1 Tbs. granulated cane sugar
    2 ¼ tsp. (1 packet) highlyactive, fast rise yeast

    3 Tbs. granulated cane sugar
    ¼ cup warm milk (dairy ornon-dairy)
    2 large eggs
    3 cups Jules Gluten FreeAll Purpose Flour
    ½ tsp. ground nutmeg
    2 tsp. gluten-free baking powder
    ½ tsp. salt (¼ tsp. saltif using non-dairy alternative)
    2 Tbs. milk (dairy or non-dairy) forbrushing on pastry before baking
    Filling Ingredients:
    4 Tbs. butter or non-dairy alternative(e.g. Earth Balance® Buttery Sticks)
    ¾ cup packed light brown sugar
    1 ½ tsp. ground cinnamon
    ¼ cup Jules Gluten FreeAll Purpose Flour
    1 apple, peeled and chopped
    2/3 cup chopped pecans (optional)
    Gluten-Free Icing Ingredients:
    1 cup confectioner's sugar
    1-2 Tbs. milk (dairy or non-dairy)
    ¼ tsp. almond extract (optional)
    Colored sugar (purple, gold and green)
    Directions:
    Prepare the filling by melting the 4tablespoons butter and setting aside. In a separate bowl, toss thechopped apples with the Jules Gluten Free All PurposeFlour. Whisk together the brown sugar and cinnamon; stir the flouredapples in with the sugar-cinnamon mixture.
    In a small bowl, combine the warmwater, 1 tablespoon sugar and yeast; stir and set aside to proof.  Ifthe mixture is not bubbly and doubled in volume after 5-10 minutes,toss out and start again with fresh yeast.
    In a large mixing bowl, blend theremaining 3 tablespoons sugar and butter until lighter and fluffy. Add the milk and eggs and beat until well-integrated. Add 2 cups ofJules Gluten Free All Purpose Flour, salt, baking powderand nutmeg and mix well. Stir in the proofed yeast-sugar-watermixture, then add the remaining 1 cup Jules Gluten FreeAll Purpose Flour.  Beat another 1-2 minutes, until the dough isclumping together and is not too sticky.
    Prepare a large baking sheet by liningwith parchment paper. Turn the dough out onto a pastry mat or aclean counter dusted lightly with Jules Gluten Free AllPurpose Flour. Roll the dough out to an elongated rectangle 24-30inches long by 9-10 inches wide. Brush on the melted butter for thetopping, coating the entire rectangle. Sprinkle the topping mixtureon top of the melted butter, spreading to the ends of the rectangle,but leaving 1/2-1 inch without topping on each of the long sides ofthe rectangle.
    Using a pastry blade or a spatula,gently peel up one of the long sides of the rectangle and beginrolling it as you would a jelly roll. Once the entire pastry isrolled upon itself until no pastry remains unrolled, a 24-30 inchlong roll will remain.
    Gently pull the two ends of the roll togetherto form a circle or oval.  Dabbing the ends of the pastry with water,join the ends together to close the circle. Gently transfer the ringto the parchment-lined baking sheet, or transfer the ring on thesilicone baking mat to the baking sheet. Brush the milk on top ofthe exposed pastry, then using a large sharp knife, make a cut in thetop of the pastry every 2 inches to expose one layer of the roll.

    Spray a sheet of wax paper with cooking oil, then cover the cake andlet rise in a warm spot for 20-30 minutes like a warming drawer or anoven heated to 200 F then turned off.
    Preheat oven to 350 F (static) or 325 F(convection).
    Remove the wax paper from the cake andbake for 20-25 minutes. Remove to a wire rack to cool. Whilecooling, mix icing ingredients and drizzle over the cake. Sprinklecolored sugar on top of wet icing, alternating colors between eachcut in the top of the cake. Once cooled, insert a pecan or small plasticbaby into the underside of the cake to hide it. Serve when fullycooled.

    Hi Wade, I use plain water to rinse foods.  I suppose it might be better to use a little Dawn dish soap or some such on fruit like apples that is waxed.  But I don't usually do that. It's a good idea to rinse foods off anyway to reduce germs.  You never know what kid has wiped his nose on an apple in the produce section!   Plus like Ennis said there is the wonderful in store bread bakery trend these days where they can have flour wafting through the air.  My local Kroger seems to have a pretty good ventilation system set up so most of the heat from baking is exhausted and probably most of the flour with it.  But you never know for sure.  People working on making bread may have flour on their uniform sleeves and spread it around.  Also the flour section is often messy with leaking flour bags spilling gluten around.  So the stuff can be present in different areas in a grocery store.  And get spread unintentionally.  The person stocking flour may be stocking candy the next hour. I don't think buying organic is a bad thing.  But I don't think it helps as far as avoiding gluten. The issue is cross-contamination of gluten on/in supposedly gluten free foods.  And that cross-contamination can happen to both organic and non-organic foods. It seemed to me that I was very sensitive to gluten exposure when I first went gluten-free.  Even slight amounts would make me sick.  You may find the same to be true for you.  I think that is because our immune systems are in high gear at first.  So even smelling bread baking or going through the bread isle can bother some people.  After a while on the gluten-free diet the immune system may calm down and not be so quick to react to minor exposures.  That can take some time to happen though, maybe years,
