A DAY IN THE LIFE OF: A 60th wedding anniversary

Following a gluten, wheat, dairy or egg free diet can be hard, let alone when you have to go to a family party with a big buffet and BBQ! Luckily for me, my mum is as food obsessed as I am so I knew when we planned a 60th wedding anniversary party for my grandparents, there would be plenty for me to get stuck in to.

The setting: my parents have a beautiful back garden which the decorated with bunting, naturally!

The theme: 1950s Hawaiian party – EASY!

Any excuse for pineapples

The food: Gluten free sausages and rolls – the dream!

Peanut butter cookies (don’t tell anyone that I ate one for breakfast though…). You can use this recipe to make these and add half a cup of peanuts if you fancy it.

The cake: My aunt is a master cake baker and made a replica of my grandparent’s wedding cake. Unfortunately was not gluten free but I did steal some icing…
