Gluten-Free Almond Flour Wedding Cake Instructions

Are you or someone you know planning a wedding and looking for a gluten-free cake option? Look no further! In this article, we will provide you with instructions on how to make a delicious and beautiful gluten-free almond flour wedding cake.


  • 3 cups almond flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk (dairy or non-dairy alternative)


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and line three 8-inch round cake pans with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. You can use an electric mixer for this step.
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time, to the butter-sugar mixture, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. Gradually add the almond flour mixture to the wet ingredients, alternating with the milk. Begin and end with the almond flour mixture.
  6. Divide the batter evenly between the prepared cake pans.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for about 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean.
  8. Remove the cakes from the oven and let them cool in the pans for 10 minutes. Then transfer the cakes to a wire rack to cool completely.
  9. Once cooled, you can proceed to frost and decorate the wedding cake as desired. You can use a gluten-free frosting of your choice and various decorations such as fresh flowers, fruit, or edible pearls.
  10. Assemble the cake by placing one layer on a serving plate or cake stand. Spread a layer of frosting evenly on top. Repeat with the remaining layers, spreading frosting between each layer.
  11. Lastly, cover the entire cake with a thin layer of frosting known as a crumb coat. This will help seal in any loose crumbs. Refrigerate the cake for about 30 minutes to allow the crumb coat to set.
  12. After the crumb coat has set, apply a final layer of frosting to the cake, using a spatula or icing smoother to create a smooth finish.

Congratulations! You have successfully prepared a delicious gluten-free almond flour wedding cake. Your guests will be amazed by the taste and texture of this exquisite treat.

Remember to inform your guests about the gluten-free nature of the cake, and they will appreciate your thoughtfulness. Enjoy your special day and the joy it brings!
