We now have our go-to Gluten-Free Birthday Cake recipe!
I have finally created a gluten-free vanilla cake that I love! I love the consistency, the crumb, and the flavor. It can be made into a white cake by using egg whites or a yellow cake by using whole eggs. It is so delicious that it can be eaten plain, but it is magnificent when frosted.
And now I am looking for excuses to make it. Thank goodness we are in the middle of party season!
Yes, that is a bowl lid serving as my cake plate! And with the inverted bowl over the top of the cake, I created a make-do cake carrier.
