I'm gluten and lactose intolerant.

My birthday is coming up. I'm inviting a couple of friends over (3 or 4) for a slumber party (I'm 14). I wanna do a birthday cake but I'm not sure what to do. My mom wants to make a normal cake and buy me a gluten free cupcake.

I dont wanna do that. Does anyone have a good gluten free/milk free cake recipe? That's good?

Should I make It from scratch or use Betty Crocker mix? I don't wanna have to go out and buy guar gum and xanthum gum and stuff. So is a cake mix my best bet?

Should I make a cupcake for everyone? Or should I just make cake?

Our family gluten-free and gluten eaters all ask for the one of these birthday cakes.

Bob's Red Mill Chocolate Cake - it calls for milk, but we have used rice milk depending on who's going to eat it. I also add 1 cup of chocolate chips to the mix to make it extra chocolaty. -- This one works great as double layer cake or cupcakes - I generally make a fudgy frosting, but my kids also like when I add a touch of peppermint extract to white frosting.

Paula Dean's Strawberry Cake - this one we use Betty Crocker's gluten-free Yellow cake mix as a substitute for reg cake mix. I have made the cream cheese frosting it calls for, but have also just added pureed strawberries to other frostings - again depending on whose allergies/intolerances I'm working around. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/simply-delicious-strawberry-cake-recipe/index.html

Have a wonderful birthday :)

Gluten Free Pantry also makes good cake mixes. I really like the chocolate. If you want to have a good homemade pizza that all will like their French Bread Mix makes a really good crust. It is a sticky dough so it has to be spread but even the gluten eaters I have given it to like it.

Ok thanks :) ya I'm gonna try Betty Crocker.

And I was thinking Mexican food for dinner. Corn tortillas and flour tortillas if people want.

Oh do you think I should make cake or cupcakes? It would be cool if people could decorate their own cupcakes right?

When I want cake I use the Betty Crocker gluten-free chocolate mix and add 1 can of Sprite Zero to it, nothing else! Mix and bake. Times are the same as the box for the most part, and I use the Betty Crocker frosting, rainbow chip was the latest obsession haha sooooooo yummy...

Glutino has a chocolate cake which is just heavenly, and can be easily adjusted to be made dairy-free.

Sage, I am 34 and I will tell you that there is no such thing as too old for cupcakes! The idea of cupcakes and decorating your own is great. Heck, then you could even have more than one kind of frosting too for whatever makes people happiest.

Never too old for cupcakes! I'm 30 and prefer them over cake! Lol just made some a few months ago with "tie dyed" frosting, so fun!

Cherrybrook Kitchen makes a pretty good cake mix that can be made easily dairy-free. They also make a frosting mix (don't buy the pre-made stuff, just the mix) that can be made dairy free (all products are inherently dairy free, but you add the milk you want - rice milk, almond milk, etc. ). The frosting requires butter/margarine, which you could make dairy -free.

I have one cake recipe. It goes for every birthday.

Chocolate cake

1 C. Hershey's Cocoa

1 and 1/2 C. Sugar

2 C. Coconut Flour

1 C. Butter

1/2 C. Coconut oil

1 and 1/2 tsp baking soda

9 eggs

1 and 1/2 C. milk or milk substitute like almond milk or hemp milk.

1 tsp. vanilla

Dash salt.

I just dump it all together and beat the heck out of it.

(They say to alternate wet and dry ingredients and to beat after each egg but I never do.)

Bake 350 for 45 min to an hour. til tooth pick comes out clean.

They say eggs should be room temp but I don't bother.

    • https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/91878-newbie-info-101/ ^Newbie 101 section PS you are diagnosed celiac right? Sorry but a standard question as you should get the diagnosis out of the way before going gluten-free.
      https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/ ^ Have a nice list of food alternatives, including condiments. NOTE we suggest a whole foods only diet starting off to boost healing. Also we suggest dropping anything with oats or dairy for the first few months. Oats some celiacs react to regardless of gluten-free or not, Dairy is broken down by enzymes produced by the tips of your villi, if your celiac these are normally damaged and cause digestion issues or intolerance to dairy.
    • Hi to any & all who read my post, and an advanced thank you to those who reply,        My post may be kind of robust & lengthily, but please read until the end if you are able. To give a sort of "back story" here, I'll explain my situation in a nutshell. In November of 2014 I was diagnosed with a gluten intolerance by my allergist after recurrent, severe mouth ulcers and a bodily rash. I had a blood allergy panel, but NOT a Celiac specific panel, which ruled out other food allergies completely - corn, pea, chickpea, chicken, tomato, egg, milk, etc. My allergist suggested a gluten-free diet, which I adopted & have been adhering to since then. Recently, I've been acutely sick since August of 2016, so we're talking a year plus now. My symptoms began with a burning abdominal sensation, pain after eating, premature and uncomfortable full feeling, bloating, etc. My internist referred me to my current GI doctor where I was diagnosed with GERD (chronic acid reflux) , and prescribed Omeprazole, which I still take daily. My next appointment in February had me still feeling awful & my GI doctor decided to perform an upper endoscopy, which I did in March. He was looking for ulcers, evidence of bleeding or infectious disease, and Celiac. Mind you, I had informed him that I've been eating strictly gluten free for almost three years now. He claimed this really didn't matter? This has left me wondering. Anyway, the results came up empty, but I was found to have evidence of gastritis. Then came the rest of my symptoms - frequent diarrhea, bloody diarrhea, extremely greasy stools, stools that float, mucus in stools, unable to "wait" to use the bathroom (I.e. Urgency), alternations of diarrhea and constipation, weight loss, low grade fever, EXTREME fatigue, poor concentration, memory loss, cognitive decline, and my mouth sores have reared their ugly head once again. After I first went gluten-free, the ulcers probably cleared up for a good year at least, which was heaven on earth for me. Now, they're back with a ruthless vengeance. As we speak, I've barely recovered from one for a day or so, and I'm down with two more. You can't even make this stuff up. After I addressed these new symptoms with my GI, he was concerned I may have had Crohn's Disease or Colitis, so he performed a colonoscopy, which ruled out both conditions through gross observation & biopsy samples. Since colonoscopies can only read so much of your colon & terminal small intestine, I then had a  PillCam to see the rest. The only results he could suggest was that I have a "slow bowel transit," so I was diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. The umbrella term for all intestinal and abdominal suffering with no definitive cause.        Summary of my bible here is that I'm still suffering greatly. The intestinal issues are really giving me poor quality of life, and these pervasive mouth ulcers are more than I can bare anymore with the pain, inability to eat, weight loss, etc. it's all a sick and harrowing cycle that I am caught in the middle of. In saying this, I'm almost curious that I could have Celiac disease that was horribly missed. If I had already been gluten free & a biopsy was taken it would appear as though I'm a healthy individual, no? I was informed you had to be eating a strict gluten FILLED diet prior to ANY testing. ALL of my testing was performed after I already went gluten free, which could have altered results horribly.   I'm almost crazy enough to think that if this is the case, I'm going to eat gluten just so I can be re-tested because I can't go on like this anymore.    Can anyone please clarify and/or suggest something?
    • Interesting the Teflon was the substrate /material the gluten "stuck to" with a higher ppm of cc a synthetic man made versus an organic material iron . Based on her writing further exploration is not likely to get funding but perhaps from this preliminary finding if repeated celiacs in shared households should avoid teflon products.  My husbands bachelor pots and pans were a great set of stainless steel. Our wedding set of dishes mostly have broken.  I purged all pre diagnosis wood , plastic, and and old or very used ceramic and with my son and I both affected the household went completely gluten free.  I wish the budding scientist much success, but hope she followed her own data and ditched all teflon.    
    • Yikes!   Yes!  I will correct.  Thank you. I am so used to being GLUTEN FREE!
    • Maybe you should consider a bone marrow biopsy.   Your hematologist might be on to something.  At least it would rule out several things.  Based on this link, it could be related to SIBO or another AI issue.   http://www.medicinenet.com/neutropenia/article.htm Another possibility is Mast Cell Activation Syndrome or Mastocytosis.  That could explain the WBC, low BP, fatigue, etc.   A bone marrow biopsy is used to diagnose mastocytosis.    https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/blogs/entry/1931-mast-cell-activation-syndrome-madness/ https://tmsforacure.org/overview/
