    @SparkleBee11:  absolutely not.  perfectly ok to only have one cake.


    you can’t please everyone and you are serving other desserts as well.

    My sister is gluten free. I’ve had many many gluten free cakes before and think they are all pretty gross (except flourless chocolate cakes!).  She had a small wedding cake (1 tier) that her & her husband cut, and a sheet cake for the other guests.  It actually turned out a lot cheaper anyway!

    Girlfriend is fiiiiiiiine! Especially if you are serving other non-GF at the reception. If I were a guest and you didn’t tell me, I probably wouldn’t even know. Cake is cake!!

    Nope! It’s absolutely okay! I had a vegan wedding cake and other other vegan desserts, and everyone thought they were all delicious.

    @SparkleBee11:  It’s your wedding. You don’t need to have a separate choice, just so that everyone can eat flour. Gluten free can be very good!


    You COULD have treats (home made cookies, brownies, etc) instead of a second cake or something if you really cared wether people got not gluten free deserts.

    Could you make one tier Girlfriend and the rest regular?

    I don’t think you need an extra cake.  I love Girlfriend desserts!!!

    I had a small gluten free cake at my wedding, as well as a big ‘normal’ cake. I only did it that way though, because the ‘normal’ cake was cheaper than the gluten free cake … otherwise I would have just done everything gluten free.

    Also, I agree that Girlfriend cake tastes pretty much the same as ‘normal’ cake. Just don’t tell anybody … I doubt that most of your guests will be able to tell the difference.

    Totally fine! Gluten free isn’t going to hurt anyone, and many Girlfriend cakes don’t taste any/much different! ESPECIALLY since you have other desserts, you’re good! I wouldn’t mind at all.

    Everyone can eat Gluten Free cake.

    You cannot eat cake with Gluten.

    Enough said.

    There’s a lady who made Girlfriend brownies at a bridal show and they were probably the best brownies I’ve had ever (and I’ve eaten a lot of brownies in my lifetime as they’re my favorite dessert so I’d like to think of myself as some kind of brownie expert).

    But just like any other cake, make sure it tastes good!
