Party poppers at the ready! We’re giving you more reasons to celebrate and win some fantastic prizes with our Gluten & Dairy Free Let’s Celebrate Cake Kit. They say good things come in threes, and this time is no exception… (Scroll down for more about our fantastic competition!)
When Gluten Free tastes this good, we can’t keep it all to ourselves!
Our competitions challenge all you kitchen wizards to don your aprons and cook up some gluten free magic.
Here you’ll find the very latest and previous Delicious Alchemy competitions, including our personal favourite – the Delicious Alchemy Gluten Free Magic Bake Off.
The story so far…
Back in October 2016, Delicious Alchemy’s annual Gluten Free Magic Bake Off competition was drawing to a close. The final was closely fought, with some truly showstopping entries to choose between. After a lot of deliberation, we decided upon Carly Talbot’s Autumn Spice Showstopper as 2016’s winning bake!
Carly won a trip to Sheffield, where she had a gluten free afternoon tea at the beautiful Chatsworth House, and a professional photoshoot of the winning cake. She decided to put a springtime twist on her creation this time around – and we hope you’ll agree that the results came out beautifully! Carly runs the blogs Gluten Free B and Windsor B – you can read her account of the day here. Scroll down for the recipe for this masterpiece if you’d like to create your own!
Happy Coeliac Awareness Week! Today marks the beginning of charity Coeliac UK‘s annual week-long event to raise awareness for coeliac disease and the gluten free diet. Here at Delicious Alchemy, we want to kick celebrations off with a bang.

IT’S COMPETITION TIME!
As some of you may remember, around this time last year Delicious Alchemy held its very first annual Ice Off competition. We asked you to send in pictures of your very best iced Christmas cakes – and we were so impressed with what we saw! There were a wide range of entries, and some real beauties in there.
This year, to celebrate the release of our brand new gluten free biscuit mix, the DA Ice Off is all about gingerbread! So get your baking gear on!
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!
Drama. Betrayal. Bakewell tarts.
The last eight weeks in the Great British Bake Off tent have been fraught with behind-the-scenes drama, as everyone’s favourite gently competitive baking extravaganza found itself at the centre of a bidding war. As the news broke that GBBO was moving to a new home with Channel 4 (to audible gasps in the Delicious Alchemy office), followed by the departures of Mel, Sue and our beloved Mary Berry, nothing seemed certain.
Thank goodness, then, for our Gluten Free Magic Bake Off bakers! Week on week you have wowed us with your fantastic free from creations, and we’d like to say a massive THANK YOU to every one who took the time to send in their bakes. You have inspired us so much, and proved yet again that you don’t need gluten to bake up a storm with the best of them.
The votes are in!
You’ve picked your favourites, and we are delighted to announce the finalists of our Gluten Free Magic Bake Off 2016!
How the time flies! Round One of our Gluten Free Magic Bake Off has already come to an end, and we have been staggered by the amount of hugely creative and talented free from bakers there are out there. Thank you so much to everyone who took the time to enter their bakes.
Particularly impressive has been the number of GBBO-inspired entries we have received – and this week was no different! In honour of Botanicals Week, feast your eyes on these particularly green-fingered goodies!
