When A Gluten Free Cake Goes...well...glutened

Recommended Posts

So....my pal got married and she was sooo pleased to present me with my own little gluten free cake in it's own little box. Loving and trusting her like I do (or maybe is was more my love of cake....) i gobbled the little cake right down....not five seconds later i was all but curled up in the fetal position under the table and am now (two days later) just coming out of it....as if the cramping pains in my intestines isn't enough, my poisoning had to be accompanied by insatiable itching on my right leg and left ear if i could have torn my leg off and used it to pound the itching out of my ear i swear to god i would have done it!! How will i ever trust you again little chocolate cake?????

May I just say that royally sucks!!!!! So sorry! I hope you havent been ruined for cake forever! It's one of life's little joys I am hoping to have again some day (gluten-free of course) when I am a little more healed. I hope you feel better soon!


Gluten free is not so bad! If you are new, hang it there, it gets easier!

Oh gosh I am so sorry this happened to you. I wonder if the baker had great intentions but no knowledge of CC issues. I hope you are feeling better really soon.

I suppose it will be awhile before you'll try chocolate cake again... it is the favorite treat in our family since going gluten-free.

We use Bob's Red Mill Chocolate Cake Mix and add a cup of choc chips to the batter.

Frosting is 2 cups choc chips, 1 can sweetened condensed milk and 2 teaspoons vanilla (melt together in saucepan) - it's very smooth - fudge/candy like

This is sinful and no one can tell it is gluten-free.

Hope you are able to enjoy soon!

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

"LTES" a Gem :)
