Don’t these look gorgeous?

I know I’ve written about celebration cakes before, but it’s a question that comes up a lot – where to find a gluten free (wheat free, or dairy free) wedding cake, christening cake, birthday cakes …

celebration cakes from Pure

Yes, you can make them yourself (and there’s a fantastic recipe for a vodka and cranberry fruit cake here) but just sometimes you’ve got too much else to think about, and want to get a professional to do it for you.

And we’re not all sugar-craft experts! I’ve done my time making gluten free safari park, dinosaur, pink fairies and seahorse cakes for children’s parties, and I know just how difficult it is. No way am I going to be trying to decorate something with as much significance as a wedding cake!

This is a new venture for Pure (aff). They’re offering a “personal, friendly and professional decoration and design service” – and having spoken to Pure when ordering before, I can confirm that they are indeed very friendly and helpful.

I’d be very interested to hear from anyone who has commissioned a gluten free celebration cake, either from Pure or from someone else – how did it go? What was the cake like? Did you get what you wanted?
