I have a bride that cannot eat gluten or corn. the groom’s only cake requirement is that the cake is custard filled. I repeat, allergic to corn, custard filled. umm…right. They want a riff on black forest cake (chocolate and cherry).
So the questions are:
1. does anyone have amazing recipes for gluten free chocolate cake that could be used to make a wedding cake?
2. does anyone have suggestions about making custard without cornstarch. arrowroot (i heard it doesn’t thicken well)? gelatin (would it be a totally different texture than regular custard)?
