Be careful of what you use to grease your pans, Pam Original is gluten free, Pam Baking IS NOT. Also watch out for some additives such as Triticate, Spelt, Mir or Farina (AKA Far or Farro) they have hidden gluten in them. I filled mine with a strawberry mousse and crumb coated with ganache, then Wilton fondant. (all gluten free) Good Luck!!!
I agree, many foods have hidden gluten, so make sure it's specified on the packaging that it is gluten and in your case also dairy free.
But then again, ganache contains lactose..
