Special Celebration Cakes

I don’t normally do cakes per se as my focus has been on making muffin or cupcake size cakes for the school lunch box or for afternoon teas.  A slice of cake doesn’t seem to stay in one piece in a lunch box whereas a muffin or cupcake seems to take the knocks.

But I have been doing a little bit of gluten free baking for a friend who has a cafe and so I have gone in search of “cake” recipes that present well in a cafe cabinet.  I have actually enjoyed the challenge because I can bake a wider variety of recipes which might not otherwise be eaten at home.

Or these cake  can be your celebration cake for that special occasion such as a birthday or family gathering.

My KJ has requested a Raspberry White Chocolate Cake for his upcoming birthday… I told him that I’ll see what I can do…

1. Flourless Lime and Almond Cake with Caramelised Limes lime almond

2. Orange and Almond Cake

3. Coffee Hazelnut Cake

4. Raspberry and Cacao Nib Tea Cake from The Gluten Free Scallywag

5. Passionfruit Ricotta Flan with Lemon Cream

6. Mandarin and Almond Cake or Gluten Free Mandarin and Almond Cake

  1. Love this collection of cakes! The flourless almond one with caramelized limes might have to happen soon in my cocina 🙂

    1. I am sure you will enjoy the cake. I suggest preparing the limes in advance though as the process of boiling the limes is a little long. But this is the only drawback. I found that if you double the number of limes, you can then puree the second batch and freeze for the next time you make the cake.
