It was great to see all the publicity recently surrounding Chelsea Clinton's gluten-free wedding cake. Chelsea has a gluten allergy so decided on a whopping nine tiers, 500 pounds and 4 feet tall wedding cake, created by New York bakery La Tulipe Desserts. Ingredients included 360 organic eggs, 50 pounds of sugar, 45 pounds of gluten-free flour, 30 pounds of butter and bittersweet chocolate, and was decorated with about 1000 sugar flowers!
We may not want a wedding cake with all those calories!! But it's wonderful to see an increased availability of gluten free wedding cakes. Some Coeliac brides have found it difficult to source cake suppliers who can adapt a gluten free recipe to a larger sized cake. They decide to go with a tradition cake rather than create a fuss and get on with other wedding plans. But this is your special day and I know when I got married it was very important that I got to enjoy a slice of my own wedding cake.
Thankfully a number of cake suppliers around Ireland are now providing gluten-free wedding cakes and like Chelsea Clinton you can "Let them eat gluten-free cake" at your wedding too!
