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.

    • Here is a partial list of what I no longer suffer from as a result of not eating wheat. Some like the sleep apnea and gerd and back pain and addiction to alcohol were almost immediate. The foot pain is improved to just numbness sometimes. My long term depression went away when I added vitamin D 10,000 iu a day for a year, but the improvement started almost immediately. Muscle tone and energy improved when I added iodine. one sheet sushi seaweed a day. My Fibromyalgia is controlled with 15 mg oral Prednisone a day. I remember as a kid waking up and having to pick the dried mucuos off the roof of my mouth. That is gone and for the first time in my life I am a nose breather. Drink lots of water to help with the mucous if it is thick. Some mornings mine is like rubber cement. I need to quit smoking now.  You can improve have faith, but healing takes time. Stay the course. A Romaine lettuce salad everyday helped the gut pain. Gerd shortness of breath sleep apnea back pain snoring prostrate hypertrophy contact lens protein buildup night vision improved cataracts reduced head hair growth foot pain sleeping no more than 2 hours at a stretch slow healing no energy. Pretty much bed ridden. 
    • Celiac Disease is damage to the nooks and crannies in our intestines leading to malnutrition, vitamin deficiencies with all the various symptoms that make it so hard to diagnose. Then you add years of the antacids, antibiotics, Tylenol, opioids, alcohol, etc., each with their own particular side effects and damage. Now you've got a toxic environment that kills off the beneficial bacteria increasing malnutrition. Theoretically you can eat anything except gluten. But wheat is so ubiquitous in our diet and economy there are unlimited opportunities for cross contamination. So read the label. Use common sense. If there isn't a label it doesn't have wheat so you can eat. Big Food likes to add wheat to everything because it is addictive and helps them ensure you can't eat just one. Why on earth else would Campbells Tomato Soup have wheat listed as an ingredient? Meantime your body is in distress from malnutrition so you need to be sure to replenish D3, and Iodine for starters and treat and support any other symptoms while you heal. Good nutrition without wheat is the only way to stop progression. And just like chewing paint chips made with lead is bad, so is food with wheat.   well said, doesn't need a label.
    • We use pure cherry juice with our snow cone machine. Makes for a nice dessert after dinner.
    • Hi Kurasz, How's it going?  Any change for the amazingly better?  Or slightly better?  
      If not, hang in there, and keep praying! :)
    • Garden of Life brand Dr. Formulated Organic Fiber. It's certified gluten free. Also free of psyllium husk, dairy and soy. Also found that just simply increasing fiber intake works wonders. Perhaps try skipping a protein for at least one meal and fill up on veggies and fruits.
