I (and several people in my family) are allergic to gluten and dairy. I haven't been able to find a local baker (Waco, TX) who will make a gf/df cake. There was one lady I found on a local Facebook wedding board who made a (sad) attempt and it looked like she didn't even try. The cupcakes were like soggy, flavorless rocks and the frosting was gritty and lumpy.
The closest bakery I've found that does this type of baking is on the north side of Dallas (Unrefined Bakery). They have excellent reviews, but it starts at $5.50 per serving and I'm worried about having to transport a cake that far.
My fiance things that between the 2 of us we can bake and decorate the cake. I'm just not sure if we'll have time. I'm sure we could. My mom used to make wedding cakes and she knows how to assemble (although my decorating skills are decent, hers are pretty rusty). I'm attaching some pictures of cakes I've done in the past few years. I have over a year to practice, so I'm not really sure what to do yet. What do you think?
