    Amy, this cake is gorgeous! I don’t know why, but I never think to fill the inner layer of cakes with fruit…especially in the summer! Thank you for the inspiration!

    My passion: anything with needle and thread. I took some time off from work this week, and have already been cross stitching and sewing to my heart’s content – something that I haven’t been able to do too much of lately b/c of work demands. Someday, I’ll have my own cross stitch or fabric store…until then, I’ll just keep working on my etsy shop :-)

    @Jacki, You go!!! Follow your dreams. My baby sis is starting an Etsy shop soon and I am so excited for her. She is so creative and I know will be hugely successful. I’m familiar with your passion and know you will too.

    Hugs,
    Amy

    What a beautiful and fun cake!!! I’ve been exercising more which has become something I really enjoy. I look forward to doing it everyday, and I hope I can keep this feeling up!

    @Lauren T, Congrats on your new exercise routine! I love my daily (or almost daily..) walk – it clears my head and keeps my body healthy.

    This is so beautiful. I adore raspberries, especially when combined with CHOCOLATE! xo

    @Maggie, Me too. At the cookout (where I served the cake) someone asked me what was in the cake – I went off on a long list of ingredients, including what allergens were present and absent. Finally, she stopped me and asked what was in the middle. I had to laugh at myself because I’m so used to serving people with food needs. She had none – she just wanted to know how I filled the cake. :)

    Raspberries and chocolate are a match made in heaven. Because I am not a huge lover of sweet things I like to put sharp fruit or something like chillies or Sichuan pepper with chocolate for a bit of edge, but I’m sure that because of your approach even the cake on its own would be just right for me. Lovely.

    Today is my 60th birthday, and I’m depressed because I have no gluten-free cake to enjoy. It’s hard enough being gluten-free, but to be gluten-free & diabetic is really rough! Looking at this lovely picture of your cake made me feel a lot better. I plan to make it as soon as I can, and celebrate my birthday all over again!

    @Mildrea, First, happy birthday! I understand the frustration you feel from not having cake. I’ve been there time and time again. Have you been gluten-free long? I ask because it does get easier with time.
    Hugs,
    Amy

    @Amy, Thanks for the birthday wish! I’ve been gluten-free since December of 2010. I’m trying to get to a vegan state so I can get off of some of these medicines I’m taking (and the insulin). Not quite there yet, but making a lot of changes!

    How beautiful and delicious looking Amy! I need to get you to make my birthday cake!!! :) I often end up making my own, lol. I need to find teff flour.

    Amy Reply:

    @Heathy, I think we all end up making our own. I even opt not to have one. I never care to make my own cake. Maybe we could make each others’ cakes.

    @Amy, I would love that!!! Too bad you don’t live closer. I would seriously order my birthday cake from you! :)

    Amy,

    This looks delicious! I’ve made raspberry filling for cakes before but never thought to hollow a cake and put fresh raspberries. What a great idea!!! I think I may borrow your idea for the next birthday coming up in our family. How lovely!

    @Devin, You just rim the bottom layer with frosting and fill it in with raspberries. Have fun!

    I’m always so impressed with people who have pastry chef talents. I can’t even ice a cake without it looking like a seven year old did it!

    @Alisa, You could. It just takes the right technique.

    Amy, that cake turned out awesome! I love how you did it and the stars are such a fun idea! I love when we can make safe desserts for us and yet no one else knows…even better when the crowd raves about it and you get to tell them after the fact that it was gluten free! :D It is the small things in life that tickle me. LOL

    @Kim (Cook It Allergy Free), I think that the gluten-free/allergy friendly food has come so far that for the most part there’s not a noticeable difference. Maybe if you’ve just started baking but once you get the hang of it, it’s just as good as anything baked with wheat.

    Hi Amy!

    Oh-my-GOSH! My naturopath just told me I had to go completely wheat/dairy & sugar-free…I panicked for about a moment before I went to the health food store for a billion supplements, and I’m on a mission now to eat deliciously healthy. Finding your blog has made my world seem so much easier. Thank-you!!!!

    Useful info, also, if I may add.. Give yourself a margin for error when you are
    investing in the stock market. You should always have a cushion to fall back on,
    just in case some of your investments go south. Putting all of your eggs
    in a single basket is not a good idea, since you can
    lose everything in a downturn.

    Hi,

    Looks awesome! How do i get the recipe?

    [Reply]

    Amy Reply:

    @Christina, The cake recipe came from my cookbook; the frosting recipe is a variation from The Spunky Coconut’s cookbook. You can buy either book via the links at the top of the post.This post shows you how to assemble the cake.

    And, it is an awesome cake!!
