After my first Gluten Free Birthday Cake my friend Debbie mentioned that it had been years since she had a beautiful birthday cake to call her own. So I decided to take that as a hint and make her one. Her birthday is not until December but she lives in DC so I made one over thanksgiving that she could freeze until her actual birthday. But apparently she couldn’t wait to eat it so she had an early birthday treat 🙂
The cake was a vanilla gluten free cake brushed with rum with pina collada buttercream. I used a slight variation on my normal buttercream just to see. It had a very nice texture and was much easier to make but I thought it was a bit too sweet.
Since it was made to freeze, I decided not to cover it in fondant but instead do an ombre buttercream on the outside. I topped it off with some flowers and a banner with her name on it. I used my brand new Cricut Cake Mini to make the letters.
Sorry about the pictures but we didn’t have our whole setup in DC to take the pictures.Tags: birthday, buttercream, gluten free, ombre, pina collada
