Summary

Red velvet cake is a favorite holiday dessert in the American South, where bakers hand down recipes from one generation to the next. Showcasing a vibrant crimson hue and rich chocolate flavor, our gluten-free version is lovingly hand made at a small family-owned boutique bakery in Florida. The dessert consists of four fabulous layers of dense, moist chocolate-buttermilk cake prepared using using the best natural ingredients, including Chef Thomas Keller’s signature gluten-free Cup4Cup flour. For the finishing touch, it's filled and frosted with fluffy vanilla cream cheese frosting.

Use & Care

Receiving instructions

  • The cake is shipped frozen with dry ice, which may have evaporated during shipment. This is normal. Please take care not to touch any remaining dry ice with bare hands. Upon receipt, remove the cake from the bakery box and store in the freezer for up to 3 months, or defrost in the refrigerator overnight and keep for up to 7 days.

Serving Instructions

  • The cake is best enjoyed at room temperature. Remove the plastic from the cake while it is still frozen. Defrost in the refrigerator overnight. Once thawed, remove from box and allow the cake to come to room temperature, approximately 4 hours before serving. To serve, run a large knife under hot water and dry with a towel before every slice. Store leftover cake in an airtight container, where it will keep up to 3 days refrigerated.
Ingredients
  • Cake: Cup4Cup Gluten-Free flour, butter, sugar, cocoa powder, fresh eggs, trans fat free vegetable shortening, natural vanilla, red food coloring, baking soda, salt, whole buttermilk, white vinegar.

  • Rated 5 out of 5 by from As a Celiac, this is the cake I choose each B-Day! I adore red velvet cake, but when I was diagnosed with Celiac in 2012, I pretty much figured my red velvet days were over. We discovered that Williams-Sonoma offered the gluten-free red velvet cake a few years ago. It's amazing! It's moist unlike many gluten-free items and the icing is delicious as well on a traditional tasting red velvet. I didn't tell my family that it was gluten-free and they loved it even after I revealed it was gluten-free. We order this cake over and over. If you're gluten-free then Williams-Sonoma offers the perfect gluten-free choices. I'm thrilled and WS brought my childhood favorite back to me post-Celiac.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from delicious! I ordered this cake some time ago and we just took it out of the freezer and defrosted it to enjoy it. It is very delicious, better than the Gluten-Free Yellow Cake, and the cream cheese frosting is wonderful. I just came back to order it again and I see it is no longer available. :( I hope this cake becomes available again--it was really good. The kind of cake you can serve to everyone, not just those who eat gluten-free.

Yummy icing. My guests couldn't get enough of it. Didn't care it was gluten free. Would definitely buy again,

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth it This did not meet my expectations at all. For the cost of this cake I thought this would be the best GF cake I've ever tasted. My curiosity is satisfied, but I know now not to order again. I'll buy the GF cupcake mix which is delicious and make my own!
