Dear reader,

Every one of my cookbook recipe testers who made the red velvet cake recipe fell in love with this decadent chocolate frosting. You can use it in the same cake recipe or any of your favorites. Check out some of the below cake recipes and decide which one you'd enjoy most!

Happy and healthy gluten-free cooking!



This rich chocolate frosting is another recipe from my upcoming cookbook, Carla's Best 125 Gluten-Free Recipes. There are two ingredients that make this frosting richer than traditional buttercream frosting recipes. Taste-testers loved it!

Double-Frosted Gluten Free Red Velvet Cake

This gluten free red velvet cake recipe is moist and luscious. Red Velvet is known for its richness. While not everyone has the time to make a three-layer, double-frosted cake, when you wish to impress guests, this is the cake to make. When time is short, make a single frosted cake and/or make a naked cake (no frosting on the sides). The cake, as well as frosting recipes, were raved about by my cookbook recipe testers. If you usually use ready-made frosting, you may never again.

Note: Also find this gluten-free recipe in my upcoming cookbook Carla's Best 125 Gluten-Free Recipes (2016).

I already have a Gluten Free Yellow Cake Recipe on this site, but it calls for my Self-Rising Gluten Free Cake Flour Blend. Since creating that recipe over two years ago, I find that my Gluten Free All Purpose Flour Blend Recipe works much better in gluten free cake recipes, provided you add a bit more oil or butter compared to gluten cakes. This yellow cake recipe is much richer than a normal yellow cake. It contains tons of butter, is moist, but is not heavy like pound cakes. Use it as a substitute for any gluten free yellow cake. Feel free to decrease the butter to make a more traditional yellow cake. Meanwhile, all of your gluten-eating friends will even enjoy this cake.

This is my version of Hershey's "Perfectly Chocolate" Chocolate Cake. This gluten free chocolate cake recipe, however, is moister. I knew it would be a very moist cake just by reading the recipe. That's the way my husband and I like our chocolate cake, rich and very moist! I told him that I was going to call this my chocolate mud cake, however, mud cakes are traditionally very gooey. If you like your cake with more of a crumb texture, just cut back on the oil in the recipe below. Enjoy! - and I wish you were here to help us eat this huge cake!
