Two weekends ago, two mamas-to-be were showered with love, sweet treats | this Zesty Blueberry Gluten Free Naked Cake with Lemon Curd + Maple Whipped Cream |, games, and gifts at their beautiful, cozy Vermont baby shower. This naked stack cake was created with spring in mind, the season of rebirth and new beginnings.


I am not usually one to take shortcuts in any facet of life, yet gluten free sweets have always had a daunting effect on me. I have King Arthur Flour’s all-purpose gluten free flour and have attempted simple sweets, I have yet to master the texture. Or possibly I am adverse to the texture as some are to the texture of coconut. Whatever it may be, this was my first time ever, ever using a box mix - and the verdict? It was perfect! I would like to deem myself a box mix “detective.” There is no sneaking past me pretending it’s homemade when it comes to using a box mix; I can smell its sticky sweetness from a mile away and I can taste the difference blindfolded. This mix however has me fooled! The smell, the taste, the texture - everything about this base | as I call it | is sweet perfection! I look forward to leaving it as is | rather than jazzing it up | and indulging in morning muffins! I am not gluten free; this cake was made for my two dear friends, one of whom is gluten free. My home is a peanut and tree nut free home. This cake is not only gluten free, it is peanut free, tree nut free, and kosher.

My Mother’s Handwritten Recipe for Lemon Curd

Zesty Blueberry Gluten Free Naked Cake with Lemon Curd + Maple Whipped Cream


The day before the shower, spring in South Woodstock retreated and was veiled once more by the depths of winter’s past. Yet on the day of the shower the sun was shining, surrounded by the brilliant blue sky, and tree branches donned the snow like welcoming arms. The air was crisp and fresh. There was a roaring fire within the fireplace of my mother-in-law’s 1860 something colonial; lace cloths, dainty sprigs of spring flowers, candles, and dishes prepared by all the women who gathered to celebrate adorned the tables. The shower was a celebration with new friends and old, mothers and daughters, rebirth and new beginnings.

A list of nut safe brands | local ingredients used:

King Arthur Flour Gluten Free Muffin Mix, Butterworks Farm Nonfat Buttermilk, and Top Acres Farm Maple Syrup.

I use only nut safe ingredients | products in all my recipes. Every time I go to the market, I check the ingredient list and allergy disclaimers posted beneath the ingredient list; even though I checked this information the week before. I check this list prior to each purchase as the company may have had a change in manufacturing facility | plant.

Better safe than sorry when it only takes a moment to glance through both the ingredients and allergy information posted below the list of ingredients. I.e. “allergy information: may contain…; made on shared equipment…; or processed in a facility…”

Soon you will be able to refer to a blog post on How to Navigate Food Allergens for a safe home.
