The above cake was a flourless one recommended by Kristine from Viktor Benes – gluten-free, just like this tower of sweets from Georgetown Cupcake.

    That cake looks really good! I think it’s interesting that it made you less bloated (the gf thing) after a big meal. Maybe I’ll try that!

    Hi Lynn, I’ve been reading your blog for about a year now. My mum is Chinese but I live in London- there’s a familiarity thats so strong when I read your blog and it’s particularly comforting!

    Thanks for this Gluten Free inspiration. I only found out about my allergy to wheat 2 months ago and it’s been pretty rough!
