Tori's Birthday Party

Recommended Posts

YEA!!! We had Tori's 4th birthday party today and I served ALL gluten free snacks and cupcakes and NO ONE noticed!!! It was just so cool because most of these parents I had never met before and they were commenting on how good the cupcakes were. :) No one knew they were "different"! :) I'm so excited! :) Tori had a wonderful birthday.

How exciting that everybody had a great time! That is proof that eating gluten-free doesn't have to be so different and is just as good. Did you tell anybody after they commented on the tasty cupcakes that they were gluten-free?

I used the gluten free yellow cake recipe from allrecipes.com. Its the absolute best cake recipe I've found yet.

Then I used this icing, but I left out the almond extract.

You know, I was going to tell them that everything was gluten free, but I was enjoying myself so much feeling normal for once that I decided to let it slide. There were a few people who knew that they were gluten free, the rest, well, they'll never know. :) It was awesome because they turned out SO well this year! I was really excited. Some kids even wanted seconds. :)

Did you guys do a home party or did you go somewhere as well?

We did her party at her gymnastics academy. It was really cool. They did so many fun activities. Tori loved it! Her little boyfriend came and they spent the ENTIRE time together attached at the hip. He's so cute. I was really glad to finally meet him and his family. The two of them are absolutely inseperable at school apparently. :)

Definitely try the recipe. Its very easy to make and its sooooooooo good. I think its way better than the mixes that are available. They are moist and delicious. Its definitely rewarding when others like your cooking and don't think its strange.

The gymnastics place sounds nice. I know my coworkers children have had parties at the Hershey Gymnastics place and the woman raves about it. It is also a healthy activity too.

Yeah, it was really, really cool! They did so many neat things with the kids. I was pleasantly surprised. Tori just started taking gymnastics there too so she was SO excited to share a class with all her school friends. I couldn't have asked for a better party. :)
