So you may have noticed that, a little while ago, we were making rather a lot of noise about our very own Gluten Free Magic Bake Off. It was an eight week competition which sought out the creme de la creme of free from baking. The final Showstopper Challenge of the contest required our bakers to create a three-tiered celebration cake with our Gluten & Dairy Free Vanilla Sponge Mix.
Hannah, one of the finalists, who runs the fantastic blog TheGFRedhead, produced one of the best gluten free cake recipes. She has very kindly agreed to share her show-stopping recipe with us!
“To celebrate all things Bake Off, I decided to take part in this year’s Gluten Free Cake Recipes Magic Bake Off with Delicious Alchemy to practice my gluten free baking skills. Having been diagnosed in April, gluten free baking was still new to me, so the GFMBO was the perfect opportunity for me get my apron on and see what I could come up with in the kitchen!
Whether you are newly diagnosed or not, I would definitely recommend home cooking as a way of overcoming the sometimes daunting task of dealing with coeliac disease – it allows you to experiment and develop your own free-from recipes of your favourite things whilst learning about which foods are safe.
Baking is a great way of treating yourself to some lovely gluten free treats, knowing that they’re home made, free from cross contamination, and cheaper and better portion sized than the shop bought equivalents, so why not give it a try! Have fun, test out some recipes, and enjoy your creations!”
Preparation Time: 1 hour
Cooking Time: 1 hour 35 minutes
Assembly and Decoration: 1 hour
I made some homemade ribbon bows and attached them to some wires to push into the layers between the fruit and icing, but you can also buy these ready made from most cake shops, or simply decide on your own final touches!!
We think Hannah’s Showstopper is absolutely stunning!
The flavours complement one another so well, and the decoration is simple, yet oh-so-effective! Make sure to check out her blog, and let us know if you have a go at creating this gluten free masterpiece on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
