One of my best friends is getting married in December! She is allergic to gluten, and her fiance is more a fan of savory than sweet. Do you have any suggestions for a dessert that can be used in the traditional "cutting the cake", fits the season (winter), and is made without wheat gluten?

Catherine, if the couple would really like to try something savory, what about a big, beautiful wheel of cheese — perhaps even three, stacked? It could make a gorgeous display and final piece of the meal, especially if served with fruit. Take a look at the little wheel of cheese Sara Kate served at her daughter's birthday
a couple years ago.
And then there is always cheesecake, too! A great crowd-pleaser, and easily gluten-free.
Readers, other ideas for a gluten-free wedding cake?
