Chelsea's Wedding Cake

Chelsea’s Wedding Cake

Chelsea Clinton had a gluten-free wedding cake.  That was one of the few pieces of information reported about her top-secret ceremony last month.  Until I heard about the cake, I had absolutely no hard feelings about not being invited to her wedding. 

It seems Chelsea follows a vegan diet, which is a choice.  I, however, have celiac disease and have not been able to eat anything containing gluten for ten years.  That is not a choice. 

But if they served a gluten-free cake to 450 guests as part of the (reportedly) $2 million wedding, my guess is that it was pretty darn good, and I wish I could have been there.

I have it from a friend of a friend who has a friend that was a friend of the groom who attended the wedding that gluten-free bread was also served.

Chelsea’s gown was by famed designer Vera Wang.  Prospective brides are rushing to order knock-offs.  Maybe gluten-free weddings will be the next big thing.

I can hope

I'm with you. My husband is gluten free and I am dairy free, so we would have loved all the food. Let's encourage all brides (and everyone else) to start a trend.

My family has recently been forced into the gluten-free lifestyle too. I'm actually glad it is being talked about more than ever in the past.

A good friend from high school was diagnosed celiac over 20 years ago, and I remember feeling terribly sorry for her because eating choices were so limited.

The only thing I miss is beer and hamburger buns. We can bake everything else and it is all yummy!
