Looking for a fun, patriotic dessert but need it to be gluten-free? This delicious Gluten Free Flag Cake is so simple to make!
I recently discovered the key to successfully making a Gluten Free Flag Cake your guests will never know is gluten-free. It’s all in the “extras” you add to a gluten-free cake mix.
It’s pretty simple really. You add 1/2 box pudding mix and 1 egg to a yellow gluten-free cake mix. These two easy additions transform a cake mix into something delicious! I originally made this Gluten-Free Flag Cake for a Memorial Day cookout. But it would be perfect as a July 4th celebration, or any time you need a festive dessert.
Frequently Asked Questions about Gluten-Free Flag Cake
Can I use whipped cream in place of the Cool Whip?
I don’t recommend it. Cool Whip has stabilizers that keep the frosting firm enough for topping the cake. Whipped topping tends to wilt fairly quickly.
Can I use vegan cream cheese and vegan butter in place of regular cream cheese and butter?
I haven’t tested it, but I suspect structurally it would work. I’m not sure how it would taste. I’ve never tried vegan cream cheese.
Is pudding mix gluten-free?
Typically, yes. Most companies use cornstarch as the thickener in their instant pudding. For people living with Celiac Disease, though, it’s important to read the label to verify.
