Dig in to over 50 delicious gluten-free cakes from talented bloggers around the gluten-free web! Chocolate, white, angel food, red velvet, cupcakes, and more… with paleo, keto, and vegan options!
Today just happens to be my birthday. In honor of turning 29 for about the 4th time, I decided to celebrate by putting together a list of delicious gluten-free cakes! There’s a little something here for everyone: chocolate (that’d be for me), red velvet, white, angel food, cheesecake, carrot cake, tiramisu, cupcakes… No matter what kind of cake you enjoy, you’ll find it here!
Vanilla Layer Cake by Faithfully Gluten-Free
Before we dig in, I have a little confession to make. I’m not really a cake person. Well, I didn’t use to be one, anyway. One of the side effects of growing up with a real-food mom was that junk food kinda got lost on me. Birthday parties and such – with all their boxed, dry, over frosted cakes – were not my favorite things. I actually preferred my grandma’s homemade fruit cake at our family’s Christmas party!
But going gluten-free changed all that. I can honestly say that I now enjoy cake. In my humble opinion, gluten-free cakes are 100x better than there gluten containing counterparts! (Except for my husband’s groom’s cake at our wedding – that was pretty awesome, thanks to my bff’s mom.)
So it’s with much lip-licking and picking out of my favorites that I present to you this delicious round-up of gluten-free cakes.
PS: If the cake fits in to any specific diet (i.e. paleo, vegan, egg-free, etc.) I’ve labeled it as such. You’re welcome. If *not* labeled as anything, assume that said cake is full of dairy, eggs, and sugar.
