Gluten-Free Baking, Gone Bad

Oh dear. This bad. Very bad.

I just got these out of the oven... they are burnt on the outside, collapsed and raw in the middle. The worst part? The cookie dough was yummy. But its absolutely disgusting baked.

I have six days to perfect some sort of gluten-free cake for Griffin's birthday party.

I am most certainly screwed. SCREWED.

Plan B:
Just in case the cake doesn't work out, here is my idea for plan B. I cannot take full credit as I read this idea in Donna Korn's book, Wheat Free-Worry free.

Get the store bought cake. Get something great, with robbots and trucks. Put in the candles sing Happy Birthday, blow out the candles, you know the whole thing. Cut up the cake and pass it out to everyone except the birthday boy. He gets something special.

For my Lily that special thing was fruit all dressed up in a parfait glass, with ribbon, on a plate with a dolie and Happy Birthday confetti. She loves fruit so that worked for us. But, maybe you give him a glutten-free cupcake or something. Maybe it doesn't taste all that great, but you can quickly divert his attention to presents and not worry about what the other people think of your gluten-free baking skills.

I am sure that you will have a fantastic gluten-free cake, but just in case.
