A Gluten Free 21st

My 21st birthday has come and gone by in a flash! This was my very first birthday living gluten free, and while it was my 21st, I was perfectly content with a nice day in. Unfortunately, I ended up super sick and spent most of my day in bed, with the days following as well. Luckily, I had baked a cake earlier in the week, just to make sure that the mix was good. 

The cake mix that I used was AMAZING! I chose to use Pillsbury brand funfetti white cake mix, as well as the vanilla funfetti icing (also gluten free!). Being fairly new to gluten free baking, I was nervous that it wouldn't turn out, be too dense, or that I just wouldn't like it. Gluten free baking tends to be a little trickier to me, and I was just concerned it wouldn't be good!

I chose to add some pink and purple food coloring to the cake batter just to add a little extra pizazz. I'm pretty much obsessed with anything pink, so I wanted my cake to have some pink color too! It didn't effect how the cake baked (my father was over concerned about that!) and helped to make it a little bit more special. 

It turned out AMAZING! I would totally recommend this mix to anyone who's needing to bake a cake, it was delicious, moist, and really similar to a normal cake mix in just about every way. I loved the sprinkles in the mix, and the icing (just as always) was super yummy and sweet. This cake was a total treat for my 21st!

I'm really looking forward to learning more gluten free recipes and I'm excited to share them with you all! I'm starting to see (and believe!) that gluten free baking and cooking can be just as yummy as standard baking, if you take the care to make it so. I am so looking forward to perfecting macarons and might be doing a step by step guide once I get there! Yay!

Have an amazing sunday! 

Love, Em
