How Can I Get a Gluten Free Wedding Cake?

Are you planning a gluten free reception in the near future?   Finding some gluten free meals to offer is difficult but not impossible; however, what about a gluten free wedding cake?  This is the one thing on the menu that every guest will likely eat, so you’ll want to make sure you get a good gluten free cake that all of your guests will enjoy.  

In order to locate to a gluten free wedding cake designer in your area, I recommend you check out a post by Nancy Lapid over at explaining where to find gluten free wedding cakes.   There are links and contact information to designers in every state, and it appears that the post is regularly updated.  

Thanks for making this great resource Nancy!

Update:  Please verify with your cake designer that dedicated supplies are used to ensure no cross-contamination problems.   One of our readers has reported contacting a cake designer on this list who said they simply clean the equipment prior to creating the cake, leaving potential cross-contamination concerns.

  1. Word of caution here – I would advise you to speak with the wedding cake baker to verify they use separate equipment and/or kitchens to make their GF wedding cakes. If they do not then most wouldnt consider the cake truly GF.

    @ Zach – Great tip!

    That is actually something that could technically apply to just about every post we do here (check with merchant, waitress, etc.).

  3. Kyle – just wanted to say thanks for what you do here! Keep up the good work.

    The reason why I posted what I did earlier was that I called the one listed for Raleigh (Coordinated Cakes) and spoke with the baker. She indicated that the only thing she did was switch out the regular flour for a store bought GF mix. She also indicated that she used all the same equipment as regular wedding cakes but that she ran them though her dishwasher and would cook GF cakes first that day before any other non-GF cakes. Not 100% safe if you ask me. it is best to stay away from bakers that are not 100% GF in my opinion.

    @ Zach – Eeep, yeah I guess that would be bad. Thanks for the heads up on this.

    I will probably forward this information on to Nancy at so she can make mention of it on the list. I’ll also update this post here shortly.

    I happened to “stop by” and see these posts. Kyle and readers, please do forward this sort of information to me, so I can adjust the list appropriately.
