Happy 4th of July!

101_5600 I hope those of you who celebrate the 4th of July had a great one!  I know in my neighborhood it was extremely loud!  A lot of happy celebrating going on! 🙂  I made a gluten, dairy and nightshade free spice cake with a soy cream cheese frosting and fresh festive berries.  I used my sunshine cookie cutter to make what I thought would look similar to fireworks on the cake.

101_5605 I liked how it turned out for the most part, but next time I will add acacia fiber.  Acacia fiber helps gluten free baked goods hold the moisture, so they are less dry and crumbly.  Everyone liked it, but I am super picky about my continued learning of cake baking and decorating.

101_5607 I forgot to mention that I always use a sugar blend of stevia and sugar.  There is always more stevia than real sugar.  I am not the biggest fan of a desert that has only the sweet taste of stevia, so I found that if I use a blend my pallet can accept it much better. 🙂

101_5606 Please share any cake pictures you have tried for the first time. 🙂
