Guest Recipe: Gluten Free Magic Showstopper Celebration Cake by TheGFRedhead

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!

Gluten Free Magic Bake Off – Week Six Roundup

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!

Gluten Free Magic Bake Off – Week Five Roundup

The Bake Off tent was once again shaken by some shocking news this week, as we learnt that Mary Berry, bastion of baking and queen of the soggy bottom, would not be continuing on as a judge in the new Channel 4 edition of GBBO. Paul Hollywood, however, decided to “go with the dough”, accepting a three-year deal with the show.

Needless to say, this led to some rather heated debate here at Delicious Alchemy HQ (#TeamMary forever) but what we can all agree on is how fantastic our GFMBO bakers have been this week – and indeed every week!

It was a real struggle choosing winners, but we managed to narrow it down to these brilliant bakes.

Gluten Free Magic Bake Off – Week Four Roundup

¡Hola, panaderos!*

It was out of the frying pan and into the fryer for the remaining GBBO bakers last week, as they were faced with the never-before-seen challenges of stuffed Yorkshire puddings, lacy pancakes and churros in Batter Week.

Just as impressive were our fabulous batch of GFMBO bakers, with this week yielding the highest level of entries of any in the competition! Meet our latest crop of Weekly Winners:

Gluten Free Magic Bake Off – Week One Roundup

The tent has been erected, there’s a faint whiff of biscuits in the air (and we’re not talking about Paul Hollywood’s fake tan), and at least two people have been spotted weeping into their Genoese.

Oh yes – the Bake Off’s back!

Meanwhile, the first week of our Gluten Free Magic Bake Off is already drawing to a close, and we’ve been blown away by the incredible entries we’ve received so far!
