I went to a seminar yesterday with my friend who's birthday it was, so we sneaked these lovely treats in. I didn't want to breach any health and safety rules by lighting any candles but I did take a knife to cut the cakes so I probably broke numerous rules there.
It is great to be able to have a vast choice of cakes for parties and celebrations now, these were from Asda's Free From range and ideal for a small get together or would suit a buffet. There are larger celebration cakes with themes and iced up to the roof, something that would match a showstopper on Bake Off and although there are still not as many as the 'non free from' range the choice is getting better.
At one time it was so difficult to buy a birthday cake from the supermarket which was gluten free or dairy free. I remember having to make them because it was the only way I was going to get cake. I do like baking but don't always have the time so it is convenient to buy one off the shelf. By the time you add up the cost all the ingredients you may as well buy one.
These were nice loaf cakes and can definitely recommend them so well done Asda. I tend to thank anyone who makes cakes as they just make my life complete. I just wish they didn't contain calories. There is also a good selection of cakes online. You can order personalised gluten free cake for someone special and have it delivered, imagine that!! Cake delivered to you door. The Heavenly Cake Company are just one company who supply this service and they can be found at:
So all is not lost you can have you cake and eat it, you can celebrate your birthdays, wedding, christenings and anniversaries all gluten free or dairy free with a big cake or just a small one. Yum Yum.
