Wedding Cake Questions

Recommended Posts

Hi, all!

I'm in the process of planning a gluten-free wedding reception (mine) for December. My mom wanted me to ask if there is any problem with tripling (or whatever math would have to be done) a cake recipe, such as Annalise Roberts's Coconut Layer Cake, which I have the recipe for and have read here that it's been used with great success. To me, common sense would seem to say that multiplying out the recipe wouldn't change anything, but we want to be sure.

Secondly, I've also read in previous threads that Carol Fenster has a wedding cake recipe, but I can't search inside the book on Amazon, so I don't know if it's in Special Diet Solutions or Gluten Free Celebrations. Also, I'm a little concerned by the rest of the title of Special Diet... because I only want to cut out gluten, not eggs, etc. Can anyone help me with this? Thanks so much!

I doubled and tripled Annalise Roberts's carrot cake for my wedding cake last Sept. I had a two 9" rounds, a 12" round, and a 14" round. I believe the 14" round took 3 batches of batter. I froze them all and frosted them when they were pretty cold.

Here's a photo!

Annalise created her white (butter) cake recipe for me. I was searching for a wedding cake type consistency and she worked and worked and worked and came up with that recipe for me!! She is such a sweetie. It is on page 37 of her cookbook.

It is AWESOME!!! I highly recommend it. My family (not gluten-free) begs for it at birthdays and special occasions.
