Hi there,

I am wondering if Virgin Ice fondant is gluten free? I am making a cake for a co-worker and his wife has a gluten sensitivity, and I've never done a gluten-free cake before. I usually use Virgin Ice when I do fondant cakes, but I am honestly wondering if it would be better to use buttercream for this?

Does anyone have any suggestions? Any advice would be helpful, as I've said I have never done a gluten-free cake. icon_biggrin.gif

Your best bet would be to contact the manufacturer and ask. When we make gluten-free cakes we use Satin Ice fondant, which is gluten-free.

When making the cake you need to be very careful about cross-contamination. Wait 24 hours if airborne flour has been in the kitchen, use only non-porous containers, equipment and surfaces, and make sure not to store ingredients containing gluten above any gluten-free ingredients or products.

So long as it contains neither wheat, nor spelt, nor rye, nor triticale, or barley, nor kamut, nor certain other closely related grains (the jury is still out on oats), it's gluten-free.

Neither corn nor rice contain gluten. Neither does sugar.
