20 Gluten Free Cakes for Every Occasion

I’ve recently had to eliminate both gluten and dairy from my diet. The good news is that people like me can still find hundreds of recipes to satisfy our tastebuds. When my kids were little, my heart always broke for the kids who couldn’t eat the birthday cake. Now I feel like those kids. So, I made it my mission to find recipes for gluten free cakes you can make for birthdays, date nights, or just because you are feeling like some cake. YUM!!

Gluten free cakes to die for!

Since my husband does not have a gluten sensitivity, I try to find cakes we can both eat that he will love as much as I will.
