Someone left the cake out in the rain...

It's (another) rainy day. It's been the summer of rain here. It's getting downright soggy.

I am baking my brudder his birthday cake for his birthday party tonight. It has to be gluten free and dairy free and I'm up to the challenge. He requested banana something so I dug out the old Joy of Cooking and am adapting their yummy banana cake recipe. It's a delicious cake and should be moist enough to convert over to gluten free (gluten free flour mix, guar gum and an adjustment of the flour and leavening amounts). I found dairy free "cream cheese" too, so I can make some "cream cheese" (ish)  icing and put some slices of banana between the 2 layers and doll it all up.
Should be tasty!

Later: it was :)
