Gluten-Free Celebration Birthday Cake

“Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday Kinnikinnick, happy birthday to you!”

Happy birthday to one of our oldest advertising partners. Kinnikinnick has been advertising in Gluten Free & More Magazine and on our website with delicious gluten-free recipes and giveaways for years, and I’m excited to announce it’s their 30th birthday! They’ve been providing gluten-free and allergen-free products for baking and cooking since 1991.

In celebration, I’ve made a delicious Gluten-Free Celebration Birthday Cake made with their gluten-free white cake mix and a handful of easy-to-find ingredients. If you’re having your own birthday celebration sometime soon and want to re-create this for yourself, just double check that your frosting and sprinkles are gluten-free. If you don’t have a piping bag and want to make clean decorations using the frosting, just snip a corner off a plastic bag and that’s all you need! Star tips and other accessories that come with piping bag sets are great, but you can make do without.

Check out my many other gluten-free recipes using Kinnikinnick products.
