Choosing the Right Recipe
Not all dessert recipes are suitable for gluten-free adaptations. Choose recipes that rely less on the structure provided by gluten, such as puddings, custards, or flourless cakes.

Making Substitutions
When substituting gluten-free flour for regular flour, use a blend of different flours to mimic the texture and taste of gluten. Don't forget to add a binder like xanthan gum or guar gum to provide elasticity.
