    Glad the cake was a hit!
    I am not going to lie, I love the funfetti boxed cake so much! My mom always makes it for my birthday. I love love cakes with banana filling. Holy yum!!

      Thanks for sharing your favorite cake! I’m not sure I’ve ever had a cake with banana filling, but it sure sounds delicious!

    Looks great! Must have been delicious if there is no evidence of the before eating.

    Oh yeah, my favorite cake is chocolate with vanilla butter cream, but chocolate on chocolate comes in a very close second. I also like mine with berries on top. Happy Birthday to the little guy!

      Oh, yes chocolate with butter cream is tasty too, and another favorite of mine is a Texas Sheet cake. Thanks for the bday wishes for Big Tex!

    Yum, this looks so delicious and gluten-free makes it even more perfect!

      Hi Maria. Thanks for stopping by! My kids don’t need to be on a gluten free diet but since I am, and I want to enjoy cake with them on their birthdays, that’s what they get. Plus, GF tastes just as good as regular don’t you think? :-)

    Happy Birthday to your son (cute even seeing 1/2 his face)! And I must say I love the BEI appbreviation too. Your PEI (post eating it) photo looks surprisingly pretty. I’m not a baker (and we have great gluten free bakeries in NYC) but I love Mud pie, Ice cream cake and carrot cake if life had no rules.

    Have you considered joining the gluten free ratio rally? [if you are already a part of it & I missed it on your site, please forgive.] My friend Gretchen of kumquat-blog is doing it… it just got started… you might enjoy? Visit Gretchen’s site if you’re interested. She’s also an RD living gluten-free.

    Strawberries and cream combine beautifully with cake. I made a (gluten) version a few years ago. Yours sounds really fantastic!

    Regan-Yes, I have been to visit your friend’s blog. I love it! I just found out about the gluten free ratio rally last week, and would love to participate. I just need to buy a kitchen scale first :-)
    Xiaolu-Thanks for your comment :-) You can never go wrong with strawberries and cream IMO!

    Me: So, what was your favorite thing about the birthday celebration? Non-stop video games?

    Son: NO!!! The cake! The cake! The cake! It was so yummy! Can you make me one for my birthday?

      Thanks Maria! My best friend was at the party, and even though she’s not gluten free she loved it and want one for her b-day :-)
