Looking for celebration gluten free cakes? Check out Marnie Searchwell
With a birthday coming up, the month of July is all about cake eating. Like I need an excuse. This week we met the lovely Marnie Searchwell who swung by Gluten Free Towers from her kitchen in Kennington, London to drop off some samples of her award winning cakes. And they were an absolute treat.
Marnie makes gluten free cakes; gluten and dairy free cakes; and gluten, dairy and egg free cakes for all kinds of occasions: from weddings to kids’ birthdays. So no matter what your allergy, there’s no reason to miss out.
What’s more, Marnie only uses the finest ingredients, and organic wherever possible like Fairtrade organic chocolate, Appleton Jamaica Rum and organic unrefined cane sugar. The ground pimento berries (allspice) she uses in her fruitcakes come from a tree in her father’s garden in Jamaica.
And let’s just mention that gluten free luxury Jamaican fruitcake shall we? Unbelievable. Juicy fruit, moist and with a kick. This would make a lovely wedding cake.
Marnie bakes everything herself to order, in her own kitchen. And with a gluten intolerant husband she’s worked hard to create delicious cakes everyone can enjoy. Marnie has worked out a special blend of gluten-free flours that ensures her cakes have a fine texture and are light and delicate in the mouth. Five of her cakes won Great Taste Awards. It’s not difficult to see why.
