I have been on the gluten free diet my entire life and now I am trying to plan my wedding. I am trying to find a gluten free wedding cake, this seems difficult. I live in tampa Florida, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Congrats....I am also planning my wedding. Flying to Florida for it. I am planning on making my own cake and having a friend of mine decorate it. There will be another wedding cake for the other guests. I have been trying different cake mixes to see which one works better. The baker where I live was willing to bake a cake for me with gluten free ingredients. But it was really expensive to do a whole cake, so he suggested a smaller cake for me and a regular cake for the others. But now that we are going to Florida, I'll either have my friend look for a baker willing to use my flour or make it my self.

How exciting! I saw recently in a magazine where a baker made miniature wedding cakes and put them in the center of the table as a decoration. Then they had a very small, but elegant cake for the bridal party.

You could have regular miniature ones for the guest - and yours could be gluten-free on a table all by itself...No one would be the wiser :) And I would think you could find a person who does it out of their home or whatever to make you a small one to your specification (and with less cc - if you're the ONLY project they're working on...).

Good luck and congrats!!

I almost forgot about CC!!!! I asked the baker, he stated since it would be a small cake he would be willing to use new baking sheets for the cake. Now, I'll have to look for a baker in Ft Lauderdale. More than likely I will make my own small cake.

I love the idea of having smaller cakes at the table, that would be perfect!!!!

I would call all the bakers in Tampa and see who is willing to help you out. You will be surprised how many people are willing to help accomadate you.

I guess you could really even do the opposite - put a small cake to decorate your table that's just for you -

and a regular cake for everyone else.

I know of a baker is Baltimore that bakes strictly gluten-free cakes, cookies, muffins, etc. Check out www.glutenfreedesserts.com. I've also heard of people who have a baker make the top tier of a cake gluten-free and the bottom tiers with regular flour. Good luck!

What a great idea - a smaller gluten-free cake. My daughter is getting married in Italy we both are gluten-free. I wonder how we can find out if a baker will do one there....

Congrats to all those with upcoming nuptials! Hope you find a good gluten-free cake option.

Of course, you could always call that guy on the Food Network, "Ace of Cakes". Let's see just how good he is B)

Gluten-Free Pantry makes an excellent Angelfood Cake Mix. It is really amazing. I served it at a family dinner and everybody loved it. So it passes the non-celiac test.

The secret to getting the height of any angelfood cake is to NEVER use a nonstick pan. Sometimes you have to go to a few stores to hunt one down.

I would say that you'd probably need a stand mixer though because you need that kind of power to get the batter whipped properly. It's kind of like making a merengue.

I made my own wedding cake w/ Annalise Robert's carrot cake recipe. Took about 8 recipes total to make a 3-tiered cake. We decorated it w/ fresh flowers and it was beautiful and delicious!

    • If your doctor gave you a tis transglutaminase tTG blood test, and your number was atleast 150 (normal is less than 15), by standards of diagnosing celiac in Europe, and now apparently in the USA (according to my pediatric gastroenterologist) , you are confirmed celiac with no need for an upper endoscopy, but that is the only blood test which can diagnose celiac without need for an upper endoscopy.
    • If you are able to eat dairy,  Against the Grain is hands down the best gluten-free pizza (and I'm from N.Y. coincidentally:-)) http://againstthegraingourmet.com/store-locator Regarding parties, or any social gathering for that matter,  I always eat before hand and get a glass of wine or cider when I'm there. 
    • Hey All, I was wondering if anyone has tried gluten free pizza? I'm specifically talking about the store bought kind. I'm looking for a cheat meal - I've been eating mainly non processed fresh food but I need a little something to stay sane every now and then. I'm from New York so i'd say I have a pretty high standard of pizza lol. Are there any good frozen ones that are worth eating? I don't think i've ever eaten a frozen pizza in my life but I don't particularly have the time right now to make my own.  Also while I'm posting I figure i'll ask. I'm going to this event with my friend at her work. It's like a dinner party. How do I navigate this situation food wise? Should I just eat at home and get drinks there or plan to eat there but take snacks just in case nothing seems safe?  Thanks guys!
    • Hi Dalek, JMG has it right, any food with wheat, rye or barley is a gluten containing food.  In addition, watch out for malt, which is sometimes made from barley.  That includes the malt in beers.
    • Interesting!! I'm going to share that with her dr. I'll have to look into the gluten sensitivity more myself, the main reason we started testing is due to poor growth. As I learned more, I've seen several symptoms that could be explained by celiac. I like feeling informed so I'll know what to talk to the dr about or ask about. I think those are the results we are waiting for still, I couldn't remember the name.
