My cake making skills were put to the test once again, this time a gluten free fruit cake for a friends anniversary party. Was a little worried as hadn't really worked with gluten free before much but it went down well in the end.

That's really beautiful! My compliments!
Gorgeous! I've been asked to make the wedding cake for a cousin this August and I'm already nervous.
That's a very clever cake Jenny , very effective

Looks great, would you share the gluten free cake recipe for us? Did you make the icing from scratch? some bought icings have glucose from wheat in them
Sorry White Rabbit, never saw your request. I couldn't find a gluten free fruit cake recipe so just used my normal recipe and substituted with gluten free flour and extra liquid. It worked o.k but if doing again I would also substitute some of the flour with ground almonds I think.
As for the icing I didn't realise that! But no ill effects suffered by the recipient so must hve been o.k.
