In addition to my work as a musician, I also have a "day job" working in an office. At my office, we have one other person who is gluten free.
She recently had a birthday, and I brought in this Gluten Free-Dairy Free Chocolate Raspberry Cake! I had a lot of help from my friend Jen, another Ohio girl who bakes a lot and lives Gluten Free and Dairy Free. It is a chocolate/chocolate cake, and it has a raspberry filling.
It can be done! Anything we had before the dietary change of becoming gluten free (and dairy free, and soy free, etc. etc.)--anything we had before, can be made again, in a safe way.
