Growing up, I remember the smell of sweet baked goods wafting through Grandma’s house. She was a master baker, highly skilled in her craft, and she managed to run a cake making business (she also made cobbler and other yummy treats), in addition to simultaneously raising four children. Her forte was making wedding cakes, and my absolute favorite, her super secret frosting recipe, was to die for. All I can say about that is the frosting has a massive amount of powdered sugar in it. We had to be especially careful with the mixer, so as not to coat ourselves and everything else in the kitchen with a fine dust of it.

I have been learning more and more about her after her passing in 2014, like the fact that she was gluten intolerant (like me) and also allergic to tomatoes (like me). Knowing this earlier in my life would have saved me from many tummy aches. Unfortunately for her, gluten intolerance was unheard of sixty years ago, and she persevered through it just like anyone else back in that time. Mom has carried on the tradition by modifying her original recipes to be gluten free. This gluten free version has been included below, so that you can enjoy it with your family! We typically enjoy this over the holidays, for Thanksgiving or Christmas, but you can make it anytime throughout the year.
