Danestress Posted November 30, 2011 Share Posted November 30, 2011 My twins have birthdays this week. 14yo. I can't believe my babies are going to be 14! They actually were born on either side of midnight, so we typically have two birthday dinners. One is GF The other eats flour, but I would love to have a GF dessert for him too, since it does seem sad for the other child. So I need two GF desserts that seem somewhat birthday oriented. Neither is totally attached to the idea of cake, though that would be nice. I am NOT going to attach the learning curve that is associated with learning to bake GF. I am sure I can attack it someday, but everything I have tried (GF bread, pizza crust, bisquits) has been frankly terrible. So I don't want to make a terrible cake with rice flour that was never meant to be made with rice flour, you know? My ideas so far - ice cream cake made entirely of ice cream with no actual cake. Pavlova Flourless chocolate cake (though my Mom did one of those at TG) Other ideas, please? Edited to add that while I say "GF" I am not at all sure he needs to be totally free of all gluten. We have determined through trial and error that he is sensitive to wheat flour, so he doesn't eat it. I think he does end up eating some glutens here and there, though. He is strict about the flour but not about other hidden sources. So, for example, we don't really check to make sure his ketchup is GF.
