I posted a few links to some good GF recipes on this thread http://cakecentral.com/cake-decorating-ftopict-614875-gluten.html . It includes a link to a GF taste test I've done!

The recipezaar.com one erikamj posted says (on recipezaar) that the original recipe came from allrecipes; that's one of the ones I reviewed! There is a ccer who couldn't get that cake to work, but I have baked it several times with no problems. AllRecipes reviewers highly recommend Thai rice flour though--it may have made all the difference in the world. "Sweet rice flour" is a big no-no from what people say.

thanks so much! I found so many recipes online, but I wanted one that people have actually used and can vouch for a non-cardboard like taste icon_smile.gif

I know the feeling. I hate taking risks on recipes; I much prefer to see user comments and suggestions so I know I am not wasting time and ingredients. The allrecipes cake is excellent when paired with caramel (replaces the missing "buttery" taste you don't get in the cake) and ganache or imbc (or both!)

I don't have a scratch recipe but have used the Kinnkinnick brand vanilla and chocolate mixes. Both are very tasty. I do add some vanilla extract to the vanilla one to cover make it smell not so rice like. I also find that mixing them with the wire whisk attachment on my KA works better and 1 mix will yield a 6inch square(two layer). When I used the paddle I had to use two mixes and at $4.99/mix that was very pricey.
