Are Cake Mate & Betty Crocker Decorating Products Gluten Free?

Gluten Free Cake with Decorations

Once you find some wonderful Gluten Free Recipes, you may wish to decorate some of them. Cakes, cupcakes, donuts, and cookies, look more celebratory and inviting with a little color. It is fairly easy to read a label to determine whether or not a decorating product for cakes and cookies contain gluten. However, if you are super-sensitive to gluten you probably wish to avoid any form of cross contact with glutenous products made in the same manufacturing facility.

Red White & Blue Gluten Free Cupcakes

Gluten Free American Cupcakes

Here is another fun gluten free Memorial Day, 4th of July, or Labor Day dessert recipe. This recipe creates moist, fluffy, and rich cake in red, white and blue. It’s so good, it¬†doesn’t need frosting! However, you can omit the food coloring and make solid,¬†white cupcakes. This is the richest gluten feee cake I have ever made! It’s because of its high fat and sugar ratio. I hope you enjoy this recipe as well as your holiday. Continue reading “Red White & Blue Gluten Free Cupcakes”

Moist gluten free apple muffins anyone would surely enjoy, even your gluten-eating friends and family members. If you already have a batch of Carla’s Gluten Free All-Purpose Flour Blend Recipe already made up, they are fairly simple to make. This particular recipe should turn out well with any gluten-free all-purpose flour blend. However, my flour blend recipe contains superfine rice flours which are very close to gluten all-purpose flour. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

When I make cupcakes I prefer to use natural frosting rather than artificial food coloring, though when I do use coloring, I use Select Tea’s natural food coloring for non-baked/heated food. In the gluten free Halloween cupcakes pictured, decorations were used for color, which can be used year after year. I’ve listed several links to different cupcake and cake recipe, along with frosting choices. Enjoy and be creative!

As many of your know, May is National Celiac Awareness month (and gluten-free awareness)¬†. I was asked to contribute a¬†gluten free cupcake recipe for the Cupcakes for a Cause event sponsored by the¬†ACDA (American Celiac Disease Alliance). The number of cupcakes I needed to represent the number of years that I have been gluten free. Well, that seems simple enough, but because I fell off the wagon, so to speak, it hasn’t been quite 7 years, but that’s what I went with because that’s what I celebrate, the moment I found truth, gluten isn’t good. You’ll see my 7 cupcakes and a number of photos below. You may vote for which gluten free cupcake recipes you like on the Pinterest’s ACDA Cupcakes for a Cause¬†page.¬†Just like it or repin. Either counts as a vote. [Contest is now over.] Continue reading “Gluten Free Dark Chocolate Cupcakes”
