Year after year I have worked hard on making sure my daughter’s birthday cake matches the theme of her party and over the years I have had some amazing cakes but all of that was before she was diagnosed with Celiac. And I just have to say, that I worked for many years with Paula the owner of Icing on the Cake in Newton, MA. She is amazing and does amazing work. I feel so terrible that we can no longer get her cakes but they are not gluten free.
So my search started and one of my co-workers told me about Gerardo’s in Westborough, MA. They offer some gluten free treats. I went at lunch one day to take a look and get some samples and they were delicious. A few weeks before my daughter’s birthday party I called and ordered her cake (they don’t actually need this much time but my daughter’s birthday is New Years Eve so I like to plan a bit ahead of time). I ordered a chocolate cake with Italian cream frosting and chocolate mousse filling. I wanted a princess theme, I had to supply the decorations and told them I wanted pink and purple.
Here is what they designed:
It was absolutely beautiful and one of the best tasting cakes I have had. And the best part (at least to my husband) was it only cost $75.00. I usually order these very elaborate and bigger cakes and they can cost up to $200. I thought this was great. Juliana had a beautiful and delicious cake and it was safe for her to eat. Everyone else enjoyed it too. In our house everyone is gluten free for Juliana.
