My youngest daughter got engaged over the holidays and is planning her wedding. The woman making her cakes is going to make one gluten free for me but is concerned about the fondant. Is it safe for me??

Thanks in advance for any help.

is she making her own? I'm pretty sure the Wilton fondant is gluten-free, but you can call to find out for sure. They're always really helpful with me.

It is totally beautiful, but TOALLY gross to eat. When I make mine, I focus on a really tasty filling, 2 thick layers of buttercream on the outside and let that set up before putting on the fondant. That way there's still a fabulous cake under the icky fondant :P

I used to decorate cakes for a living. Yes Fondant is gluten free. It also is a "learned" thing to eat. I think it's too sweet and can't stand the taste. It also hardens within the hour. I'm a butter cream person myself, but you have to make sure that there is nothing added to the butter cream flavor wise that is a grain based flavoring.

Make sure your friend really understands gluten free. If she is baking the cake in an oven that is convection (has a fan) and normally uses it for "normal" gluten laden cooking....she's going to spread gluten all over your cake. If it is a conventional oven (no fan) there is usually no worry.

Congrats for your family!!

For safety sake, be sure to check with the manufacturer first before consuming fondant. I did alot of research for a friend who has a bakery regarding fondant. I did discover that the 2 following manufacturers are safe (the 3rd would not comment):

Bakels Fondant

We can confirm that the Modified Food Starch in Pettinice RTR Icing is derived from maize/corn so as such there are no gluten/gliadin problems.

Kind regards

There is no gluten in the fondant and none in the plant! Wilton Industries - Consumer Care Center, 800-794-5866

Satin Ice

Refused to confirm if their product was gluten free or not.

Honestly, fondant is beautiful but not very tasty. I would opt for a basic whipped or butter cream frosting instead.

Congrats to you and your fam! :)

Slightly OT, but I wonder if their sprinkles are made in the same plant? I think I might have to contact them and find out.

Updated information from Wilton

Wilton pastel fondant is little bit risky :(

Thank you for contacting Wilton Brands! In regards to your question, for the Pastel fondant stock number 710-447, there is no gluten in the product but there was gluten in the plant where it was processed. This just means that our lines are cleaned for cross contamination and we let customers know this due to air born allergies. Also, unfortunately we do not have a specific list of gluten free products, but if would like, you may send me a lit of stock numbers to the products you would like to check and I can look through our system for you. I hope this helps and I apologize for any inconvenience. We appreciate your business!

Have a wonderful day!

Sincerely,

Jenn

Can ANYONE suggest a bakery closer to Central PA that has gluten free wedding cakes. A few advertise that they do but when I call they say "oh I've never made one before, what do you mean cross contamination"...and there are some a bit further away but the delivery charge is $400!! I'm about to get some betty crocker yellow cake mix and funfetti icing and call it a day.

this is the ONLY frustrating thing that i've encountered. it's my first and only (it better be!!) wedding and I can't even find a dang cake.

    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there. 
    • Called my GI doctor today to make sure he is going to look at my small intestine and do biopsy for Celiac for my EGD and he is. Thanks for the tip everyone about have to start eating gluten again. The office told me to break my gluten free diet and start eating gluten everyday until my EGD. Here's to being miserable again for a few weeks 🍻🍞😩
    • I can completely relate! The horrible mental effects that I have been living with for years is the absolute worst side effect of eating gluten, HANDS DOWN. Worse than the endless tummy aches, worse than the constant diarrhea, worse than the week long migraines, worse than the daily fatigue and body pain.... I honestly though there was something seriously wrong with me and hated my life because of how I felt mentally. I always felt like I was drowning, not in control of my thoughts, trapped in some unexplained misery. My head was always so cloudy, and I was mad because I always felt so slow and stupid. I would feel so lethargic and sad and empty while at the same time be raging inside, wanting to rip out of my own skin. I was mean, terrible, would snap at the people closest to me for no good reason and just felt like I hated everyone and everything. Think of how crappy you feel when you have a terrible cold and flu - I felt that crappy, but mentally. Some days were really bad, some were mild. I always thought it was because I was getting a migraine, or because I had a migraine, or because I had just overcome a migraine, because I didn't sleep well, because....always a random reason to justify why we have all these weird unrelated symptoms before we get diagnosed. I'm happy to say that I have been gluten-free for about 2 months now and though I am not symptom free, the first thing that improved was my mood. I no longer feel foggy and miserable. For the first time in years, my head is clear, I can actually think, and I feel positive and like I am in control of what's going on in my head. I don't hate the world. I don't spend every day bawled up on the corner of the couch depressed and angry. The release of these horrible symptoms is enough to never make me want to cheat, no matter what I have to miss out on. So insane how a little minuscule amount of a stupid protein can wreck such havoc. 
    • I wanted to collect some of the info on NCGI in one place so that visitors who test negative but may still have an issue with gluten can be directed there.
