So, my mum, my brother, and myself are all gluten intolerant (I’m the most recent addition to this new way of eating, but it’s made such a huge difference). My roommate (and possibly moh) is also gluten intolerant, but is, additionally, unable to have dairy, soy, corn, peanuts, egg yolks and citrus (and she has to go low on sugar, but she can still eat small amounts of that, and small amounts of corn)… yikes! It isn’t nearly as bad as it sounds, though.
Doing food and a cake will be very fun… >.>; I know I can easily manage a gluten free cake, but I wanted red velvet… which I don’t know if I can manage to accomodate all her allergies. She has a cake mix that is delicious, and I might just take that and make her a personal cake with the mix, and spruce it up a bit… But I know she used to love red velvet, and I want her to be able to enjoy something special.
This is a big reason as to why I’m hesitant to do catering instead of making food myself. I wanted to put it on the invites something along the lines of “please rsvp and include any dietary restrictions. If I don’t have any vegetarians or vegans there, I’m not going to worry about that, and it’s an easy thing to take care of. I just don’t want anyone unable to eat at my wedding!
Should I focus my efforts on home cooking for the wedding? I’m going to have buffet style, and there’s culinary in my family… and I don’t need fancy food, just tasty. The only thing I’m hesitant on is the cake. I know what I want, and I don’t know if I can manage it myself, but wedding cake is already REALLY pricey, and I want to make sure at least I can eat it, if not everyone!
The biggest concerns are gluten, dairy, and soy… And only the gluten applies to me, so I can do a seperate cake if necessary. Or cupcakes. Still haven’t decided. Just know that I want red velvet. Or blue velvet, technically! With buttercream icing. Now I’m hungry!
