With Christmas looming up fast we decided to whip up some gluten free baking ideas that anyone can make. These are fun projects that are perfect for kids to work on.
Remember that not all confectionery brands are gluten free so be sure to check the labelling to be sure. If in doubt, contact the manufacturer to double check it’s safe for you to eat.
We used this mud cake mix recipe to make the cake, but really it could be any cake you wanted. Don’t let us cramp your style. If you’ve got a cake mix that’s been sitting in the pantry for ages, here’s an excellent use for it.
Once you make the cake, let it cool and then decorate with gluten free pretzels and confectionery. You can make the antlers stick to the cake using icing. Icing is also a good option for decorating Rudolf’s face if you don’t have any allergy free confectionery.
Gingerbread dates back to the 15th century so it’s fair to say this yummy treat has stood the test of time! They used to be baked by monks in the form of angels but over time, the secret of gingerbread’s deliciousness spread. Now its a popular treat in most parts of the world, with the “gingerbread capital” being located in Nuremberg, Germany.
Make a batch of gingerbread with this recipe then use cookie cutters to design your people. Use gluten free icing and confectionery to decorate.
Xmas tree pops
Once again, we used the mud cake recipe for these tempting Christmas sweet treats.
Use gluten free icing and add touch of green colour to decorate them. Then finish with some gf confectionery.
For the tree trunk, use cake pops, solid straws or any other stick that’s food safe and able to hold the weight of the cake.
Happy baking this festive season!
