Yes there are gluten-free cakes. The best I've tried is The Really Great Food Company Chocolate Cake Mix. This is also dairy free.

But as your b-day is monday, you should probably try to make one from scratch, as you don't have time to make an online order. Do you have gluten-free flour? Rice flour and potato starch is a typical blend for gluten-free cakes. They also tend to use more eggs and cook at a lower temp than gluten cakes. I have ruined cakes by baking them at the recommended 350 degrees. I have found that 325 works much better and I add an extra 10 minutes or so to the baking time. Otherwise they are gummy in the center. Yuck!

Here is a link to the Yellow Cake topic in the baking & recipes forum.


Here is a link to some chocolate cake recipes in the same forum.


Here is a link to some other cakes in the same forum.


I hope these help. And that you not only have a great birthday, but a wonderful lifetime of health being gluten free! :D

God bless,

You can usually find potato starch in the Kosher food section of most supermarkets. But you can also find it at healthfood stores and online. Potato starch is different than potato flour. The starch is what is used most often, so be careful not to get the potato flour. If it says potato starch flour then that means it is potato starch.

God bless,

I actually make a flour mix that includes potato starch flour AND potato flour (and tapioca flour, and brown rice flour and white rice flour...basically everything I can find).

I think that the Gluten-Free Pantry mixes are pretty good -- my favorite is actually the chocolate chip cookie/cake mix, following the directions for the cake.

Here's a flourless recipe that's just incredible:

in heatproof bowl in pan of simmering water, melt 6 oz. semi-sweet chocolate with 3 tablespoons water or coffee and 1 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla.

meanwhile separate 6 eggs and beat the whites into soft peaks.

    • They have all given you good advice. Like Ennis_Tx said this is not medical advice. Just some observations. Ennis_Tx mentioned already a good B-complex. But people who have Perncious Anemia low B-12 have "Pens and Needles' feeling in their extremities. Mine was much more pronounced when sleeping. . . while sleeping my nerve ending would go to sleep. This would wake me from my sleep.  I would shake them awake/loose much like a leg that had fallen asleep while awake.  We have all felt that feeling before except the whole side of body's nerve ending would tingle/fall asleep enough to wake me from my sleep. Once taking a homocysteine tablet (B6,b12 and folic acid) tablet call FABB for the abbreviated ingredients under doctor's supervision this "pens and needles' went away. This also happened in my finger and toe tips while awake as if I had pinched a nerve in my back. These sensations are now in remission. Also if you think it is Rynaud's then try Niacin or Niacinamide.  It is a natural vasodialotor and the 'warm sensation" people take when using Niacin especially in a work out supplement is Niacin they add to enhance athletic performance for body builders.. . . because this opens capillaries approx. 10 % more allowing more air into the muscles thus improving their work out. This flushing goes away after a couple days of using Niacin.  The Niacinamide form does not flush the way the Niacin form does but provides the same benefit. Both Niacinamide and Magnesium each lower blood pressure approx. 10% each this way.  But if BP is a real problem for you  take the Homocysteine tablet mentioned above or just Folic Acid by itself. My BP is now normal after taking Folic Acid because it controls' how/what triggers constriction in our blood vessels thus effectively controlling BP. These are some times that I have used to improve my circulation. *** again this is not medical advice just things that have helped me with similar issues.  I hope this is helpful. 2 Tim 2:7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
    • Thank you for your advices, Kareng and Ennis_TX. Hope you guys are still doing well with celiac. I will ask my doctor about the preparation for the Celiac screening and lymph node checking. By the way, do these test cost much? To Ennis_TX: Did you do any test or check for your lymph nodes, when you noticed them swelling. And did you have many of them? did you member their size? Were they hurt you. Sorry for asking to much. My doctor just told me do ultra sound. I dont know should I ask her to do another tests to make sure the reason of swelling lymph nodes
    • IF your still getting cramps look into supplementing with Magnesium, either Natural Vitality Calm or Doctors best in the glycinate powder. Depending on other symptoms and the way your body works depends on which form is best. Calm is best if you have hard stools, do not go daily with a BM you start it off small 1/4tsp and work it up to the full dose over a week or two. If you get loose stools cut back as you dose this to tolerance. Doctors best is easier on the stomach and will not cause D or loose stools like Calm but can cause you to really relax too much and cause very vivid dreams (this is a good sign that it is working) You will notice the cramps lessen with both of these. The cramps in combination with the numbness is a sign of magnesium deficiency which is caused by your damaged intestines normally and can be made worse by PPIs and a few other issues.
    • There is a test called Biocard available in Canada.  It is a home test kit.  Should be cheaper than $125.  Biocard is NOT a genetic test though.  Genetic tests are of limited usefulness.
