First Birthday Blessings!!! Banana cake and chocolate cake tiers, all gluten free!! Brown butter buttercream covered in marshmallow fondant. Everything is handmade, including the crown, which is made out of gumpaste. God really blessed me with this cake! I had so much fun making it, and I love how He had it turn out! I am so humbled that God chose me for this project! And I am thankful for my lovely client too! #bygracecakes #pinterestdesign #Godlovesme #soblessed #saved #firstbirthdaycake #happy #glutenfree #glutenfreecake #bananacake #chocolate
What’s been cookin’? The moistest gluten-free banana cake, filled with custard buttercream.
Each layer uses 1 1/4 cups bananas, pecans and buttermilk. The recipe comes from my Grandma Mickey’s old cookbook, which I converted into a gluten-free recipe. As you can see, I used a gluten-free buttercream, which you can find in my recipes section, to create a filling barrier. My, made from scratch, custard buttercream, using eggs for our own organic, free range chickens, gives a creamy, savory flavor to a very sweet cake.
The white buttercream border was piped using a 1M tip reverse scroll motion. Using an extra stiff buttercream, the roses and leaves show more definition and dry quickly. The custard soaked gluten-free banana cake gives the dessert extra moisture and flavor.
