Zedz foods make the most incredible fruitcake gluten free, dairy free and egg free but delicious in it's own right beats most cakes I've tasted.



Re: Wedding Cake HELP: from Josiejo on 2007-06-18

I am allergic to dairy, wheat, chocolate, potato (so no potato flour to replace the wheat) and can't stand dried fruit. I am getting married next year and for once in my life, everybody else is going to have to eat what I am eating rather than me have to have something which has half the ingredients missing! Planning the rest of the menu is fine, but I am really struggling with finding a cake. We are getting married in Scotland, on a tight budget, but as I live in London I can't make the cake myself as I won't be able to transport it...

Any ideas???

What a shame your wedding isn't in London. I run a small business from Primrose Hill making numerous cakes including 3 Wheat Free Cakes, I even got a Great Taste Award for my Wheat Free Chocolate Cake! I would love to have been able to help you. Shame. Hope you find someone.

If you ever need a cake for a dinner party or tea party, please contact me. natalie -at- sweetthings.biz

Caster sugar is fine grained white sugar - small grain size so it will go through a sifter.
Known as superfine sugar in the US

I'm getting married next fall, and I live in Montreal. I was thinking of having an "opera" cake which is a gluten-free, very dense cake. However, I love baking and i am quite skilled at it. I was thinking of making my own gf-cake, are there any tips anyone can give me on making a GF-wedding cake.
