After doing some experiments with organic APF, potato starch, corn starch, and white rice flour, finally i did it.
Covered with whipcream, the cake was moist, no after state at all. However, I will use less syrup compare to the amount from TCB because the cake was a little bit soggy a few days later.
My next experiment will be baking some gluten-free cakes that I can carve to make 3D cakes.

Bean!  You are a gluten-free marvel.  That is just beautiful.  Truly lovely. 

And I’ll tell you what, that cake looks like it’s pretty 3D in real life to me.  I’d love a 3D piece of it on the en dof a 3D fork right now, I can tell you!!  (Just kidding, I know what you mean….)

Thanks Anne. You and others on this forum help me a lot when I make cakes with Rose’s books. I love all her cakes.

Hi Julie, I used white rice flour with corn starch. I tried potato starch at first time, but the cake was not risen nicely. Maybe, my potato starch was old.
Also, thank you for your tip about using agar with heavy cream. I used that to make whip cream for frosting.
I followed the instruction on pay 502 of TCB to syrup the cake,  but next time I will use less syrup.

Hi Bean!

Your cake looks fabulous!  I just wanted to ask you if you have any suggestions on gluten-free baking books, or online sources?  I have a kid’s party coming up and, although I’ve done gluten free before, I’d love some more resources!
