    Id love it if you could do a gluten free victoria sponge and chocolate sponge. My boyfriend is coeliac and I love baking but need better recipes. So happy you posted this just a shame he doesn't like red velvet. Xx

    So I made these as Jos Luis style mini-cakes (canadian snack cakes, i used silicone egg rings).

    I had to use Bob's Red Mill gluten free all purpose flour (not the 1 for 1) because Dove wasn't cost effective.

    They have a great texture and flavour. They're a little more crumbly than a regular cake i had to be more gentle. But they came out good.

  4. Sherrie Rutherford says:

    Quick question: How would the time differ if I made these as mini cupcakes? They look amazing, by the way! πŸ™‚

  5. kathryn haynes says:

    I have a quick question i need to cover three 10 inch cakes with buttercream and want to know which one would be best to use and make in bulk plz (swiss buttercream, American buttercream, or basic buttercream).

  12. Sean King says:

    Hi Jemma and Sally I made your red velvet cake the other day but frosted the whole thing in cream cheese frosting it was wanted for the next day so I kept it in the fridge overnight did this cause the cake to be quite dense? As when the sponge layers were cooled they were very light and fluffy. How should I store a frosted cake? To keep it light and moist? Love your recipies thank you

  13. Angela Clothier says:

    What brand vanilla extract is best to buy…. I always seem to buy liquids ones, yours looks really thick. Also it’s used a lot, but very expensive… please help πŸ™πŸΌ

  14. Amanda Long says:

    Where do you get the mixing bowls from?

  15. MAITRY JAIN says:

  16. R B says:

    Made this today and it is absolutely delicious! So fluffy and I love that the cake is sorta salty / tangy as it balances out with the sweetness of the topping really nicely. Thank you for this recipe. Please do more gf options on the channel.

  17. Sally-Anne Samson says:

    Will this recipe work as a cake? Or will it’s texture change?

  18. Differently Blessed says:

    Hi love your alternative recipes more dairy and gluten free ones pretty please.

    Thank you

  22. Megan Smith says:

    Question! I have found some gluten free one to one flour which already contains xanthan gum. Do I need to add more as this recipe states?

  23. AJ Narantur says:

  27. Erika Teles says:

    Can I use gluten free quinoa flour or buckwheat flour instead of self raising gluten free flour???

  28. Small Corner says:

    If the flour blend I find has xantham gum already in it – should I still add the 1/8th teaspoon? Ta x
