Aren't some hot water bottles filled with wheat?

I just can't not eat the cake. I want to have what everyone else is having :angry:

It's too late by now anyway. Usually my reactions are over within 12 hours. I don't think it would be more than 24-48 hours and we'll be flying over to Spain for the honeymoon 2 days later. Maybe I'll try and strengthen my immune system and be well rested before the day so I withstand the *attack* better. :huh:

None that I am aware of. Hot water bottles are rubber, you fill them with water. I think there might be reusable heat packs that have grain. But, they make the fillings out of other materials as well, I had one with cherry pits. You can make one and fill it with rice and dried lavender, but you'd need to be able to sew.

I live in the south and down here we usually have 2 cakes at a wedding - the traditional white wedding cake and a groom's cake that is usually chocolate. Since you've already ordered the wedding cake with gluten, do you think you could get a gluten free groom's cake and use that to eat? That way you could still have your pretty wedding cake and wouldn't have to worry about getting sick. Your piece would be sliced first, so you wouldn't have to worry about cross contamination. And you could put the cakes on two separate tables to help with the CC issue too.

Good luck! Hope you have a great wedding and honeymoon.

I'm unsure from what you've written as to whether you have eaten gluten within the past few weeks and had little reaction or whether you've been 100% gluten free since diagnoses and are judging your gluten reaction on what you felt before going gluten free. If so I'm going to have to add to the posts urging you not to eat the cake. The first time I was glutened (100% by accident) I was in the bathroom within an hour. Plus when the urge hit I had literally less than 2 minutes to get to the bathroom!!! Thank God I was so close! Then I got a terrible rash, bloating, fatigue, joint aches, and continued diarrhea for the next couple of weeks. I can assure you that that reaction was nothing like what I felt before going gluten free.

Thank you for all your replies. We got something sorted today. The whole cake will be gluten-free and will have the same design. We were referred to a retired cake decorator and baker who'd had experience in gluten-free and she said she'd be willing to do it just this once. :)

The cost will be about double that of the original, but that's ok. Great someone cares enough to do it. I'll let you know how it is.

*sighs of relief* ;)

Thanks everyone for being so supportive. The day came and it was absolutely great. I feel so guilty now for contemplating eating a normal cake.

The gluten free wedding cake was so good. We didn't even tell anyone else I'm celiac, only the venue staff knew and everything served was gluten free. :)

Had it not been for this forum I don't think we would have been convinced to make alternative plans, so once again THANK YOU!

We're on our honeymoon at the moment, and the gluten-free food offerings have been really good, too! :D

That's AWESOME! If I'd known then what I know now, I would have gone gluten free BEFORE my wedding instead of waiting until afterwards. My wedding was Sept 10 and my last day of consuming gluten was Sept 13. While my wedding day was all that I wanted it to be, I definately did not enjoy is like I could have had I felt the way I do now. Instead I had two of the WORST mouth sores I've ever had in my life, my hemrroids were HORRIBLY painful, my body ached, etc...

The honeymoon was a success! Not once was I ill. Didn't have internet for the time I was away, so just saw the replies now. Thanks so much for your support (and not just leaving it for me to do 'whatever').

I keep wondering 'what if'. I need to stop and be sensible. :unsure:

But everyone has been so accommodating and supportive. Now, hopefully I may live well on this diet.

You do need to stop and be sensible. You're not gluten intolerant where you eat wheat according to your symptoms. You're celiac and every time you eat wheat, your immune system will start attacking your body. You may not feel much but the damage adds up (as I'm sure you well know). I have thyroid autoimmunity from not being diagnosed and eating wheat for too long. There are other folks on the board with arthritis or nasty neurological damage.

Get your kitchen set up, learn to cook, and enjoy all the great gluten-free foods that we CAN eat. B)

Welcome back! Glad you had a great wedding and honeymoon. You CAN live well on this diet, and healthy is the best way for you to start your new life together! Gluten free cooking can be an interesting adventure; I made wonderful chocolate chip muffins for my family for breakfast today and my gluten-eaters LOVED them.

    • Thanks for the feedback everyone. I've been gluten free for just over a year and have been pretty good about staying away from processed foods and bread substitutes. I was just really jonesing for my grandma's banana pudding. Zanthan gum, soy and corn don't bother. So Googling the other two things I ate around the same time I only came up with one tiny web hit pointing to the fig of all things but I'm doubtful. It was an article about foods high in FODMAPs (whatever those are) which included figs and prunes. It suggests they trigger gastrointestinal symptoms. Well yeah! But I eat prunes all the time so I feel like I'm just reaching. Adding this to my food log but I may take a chance and try another piece of cookie one more time in another day or so and cross my fingers before ruling them out completely. I don't believe any company is perfectly infallible even if they do have a great reputation. I'm still super sensitive and have been occasionally triggered by other products that others seem to have no problem with. 
    • if you have celiac and you eat gluten, you will feel terrible and do damage to your body.  there isn't any 'morning after' (for lack of a better term) tried and true remedy.  if i am accidently glutened (and i am insanely careful, so this does not happen often anymore) i find that drinking plenty of water and long, hot showers make me feel better, but it doesn't leave until day 14.  14 days.  ain't nobody got time for that.  no matter what i try, it's naps and snacks for 14 days.  then the fog lifts and my guts stop protesting.  you will get better at avoiding gluten and cc by practicing being gluten free.  i would eat whole foods (avoid processed while your guts are healing) and skip eating out for awhile until you get better at knowing how to determine which restaurants are safe and which ones don't give a crap if they give you the craps <see what i did there lolz) go to the coping page and read the newbie thread.  there is much useful info there - more things to avoid than just bread - and ways to navigate this lifestyle.  welcome to your new normal.  pack a lunch, because if ya got celiac, every day's a picnic.  literally. 
    •   My mistake... HUGE Oops... She hasn't been diagnosed with anything as of yet. I couldn't remember the name so I googled and DH came up. Well that was wrong.... it is Keratosis pilaris she has. i just really don't want her to get to 20 years old and finally become allergic to lactose like her father, and continue to gain so much weight that she needs knee replacements, and diabetes,  and depression, and bipolar, and brain fog and dementia beginning at 48 and dead at 50 like my MIL, or like my mother having allergies to soy, egg, now corn and milk too, also a diabetic.... because of all these allergies she's allergic to a lot of antibiotics and much OTC medicine as well Thank you for your advice thus far
