Gluten Free 4th of July Cake

Gluten Free 4th of July Cake

I made this for a 4th of July party.  It was super easy, and yummy.  Although, I'm not 100% satisfied with the cake, so I'm going to play with the recipe a bit.  However, I wanted to post it here anyway, since I'm so proud of it. :)  Yes, the last row is a bit crooked, that is because the kids helped. ;)
Gluten Free 4th of July Yellow Cake

1 cup white rice flour (superfine)
3/4 cup tapioca flour
1/2 cup sorghum flour
1 tsp xanthum gum
1 cup milk
2/3 cup mayonaisse
4 eggs
1 tsp salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/4 cups sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda

Beat sugar with eggs and mayonnaise until frothy.  Add in milk and vanilla and beat well.  Stir in dry ingredients.  Pour into a greased and floured (I use corn flour to flour my pan) 13 x 9 baking pan and bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until done. 


1/2 cup butter
4 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tablepsoons milk (or more).

Cream butter and sugar.  Beat in milk and vanilla until right consistency is reached (adding more milk if needed).

Decorate with blueberries and cut strawberries in the shape of an American Flag.

Edited to add:  DON'T add the cut up fruit until right before serving. Otherwise the strawberries will "bleed" out onto the cake a bit. 

Enjoy your gluten free 4th of July cake!
