6th Birthday - "cake" Ideas

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

She wants a big giant cookie for her cake that she had last year before going gluten free. I'm wondering if you can recommend the best cookie mix, brownie mix and/or cake mix for cupcakes so I can decide what to bake for her birthday. I don't think I can bake the big cookie in my oven and have it come out OK.

I say mix instead of from scratch because I'm pressed for time and not the best at baking.

Thanks!

You can stack the cut brownies in a pile and place those tall, extra thin candles in the top.

We like the Namaste choc. cake mix for cupcakes. Some gluten-free baked goods work better in a couple of smaller pans rather than one big one. If you make the Namaste mix in a large rectangle, you may need to add more baking time than the package says to get it done in the middle. The Namaste is softer than other mixes. Pamela's is good too- just a little denser, if I remember right.

Thanks you guys! I knew you'd have some great ideas! I love the creative solutions of putting the brownies or cookies in stacks or put together with icing, etc. I got to the health food store today and bought 2 brands based on your recommendations. We will see how it goes next weekend!

I was at Whole foods today & saw the cutest cupcakes!!!.... The best one was two cupcakes put together then with green icing they made a dragon. The icing started with a tail, curved around & completely covered the cupcakes then continued down to form the head of the dragon. White icing or candy was used for the eyes. It was super awesome. They also had single cupcakes that were gorgeous, one was decorated with a rose on the top covering the whole cupcake. The rose was piped on icing. I cannot remember all the other decorations, I was so fascinated with the dragon!!!

I've seen the same concept but caterpillar instead and using more cupcakes.

Pamela's baking mix has the chocolate chip cookie recipe on the bag. Gluten eaters ask me to bake cookies for them, and they sold out at the bake sale. People (gluten eaters) even asked me for the recipe.

I like to make a double batch with walnuts, semi- sweet and sweet chocolate chips. (get half of the chip as chunks if possible). I don't flatten the cookies like the directions say.

Cherrybrook Kitchen cookie, cup cake mixes are the best we make cupcakes every year instead of Birthday cake. My sister makes a gluten-free ice cream cake which is fantastic I can get the recipe
