Gluten-Free Birthday Cake

Julia turned five this month!  She chose a Hello Kitty theme and cake.  At first I wasn't sure how to pull off a gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free cake, but it ended up great.  I used this Bob's Red Mill mix, and this prepared frosting.  For the details, we used a cut up fruit leather.  I baked the cake in two round pans and only cut one into the kitty shape.

The cake was delicious and baked evenly.  The frosting... meh, I could have made my own.  I bought it because I expected it to be fluffy and easy to spread.  It ended up being a bit gooey and runny.  Overall, Julia was happy and everyone decided to have seconds of the cake, so I think it was a hit.

Happy Birthday, sweet girl!
