Hi there,

I am looking for a wheat free chocolate cake recipe that's dense enough to be covered with royal icing. I have a few cake recipes but I haven't tried them yet. It's not for myself but for a friend's wedding and I don't want to try them all just to find out whether they are ok for decorating and then have to eat them myself icon_sad.gif Has anyone got an APPROVED recipe that I could use? So I don't have to take the risk? Most wheat free chocolate cake recipes are too moist to be used for a stacked wedding cake. Any idea? Already did a search but couldn't find anything (unless I did it wrong icon_smile.gif )

Thanks,

J

Does it have to be from scratch? In not, I've successfully used the Betty Crocker gluten free cake mix. I don't know if they make it in chocolate, but you could add bakers chocolate (or cocoa) to the yellow mix.

Oh I forgot to mention I am not in the USA - I am in Britain and most brands I can't get over here. Unless you know a good UK brand I will probably have to make it from scratch.

Well, I can't help then. Sorry. But I am hoping to experiment with GF scratch recipes soon, so let me know how yours turns out.

Good luck icon_smile.gif

This recipe for chocolate truffle cake stacks well and takes a very heavy frosting easily http://www.wheat-free.org/wheat-gluten-free-chocolate-truffle-cake.html
