My sister-in-law is gluten free, and I'm going to be bringing a dessert to her bridal shower. The shower is actually a wine tasting, so it would be great if it could be finger-food/cocktail-party-ish.

I could do nicely decorated cupcakes or cookies, but I would really love to do something kind of fancy (though preferably not too hard). Any suggestions?

Raw cheesecake with a nut and date crust. There is a yummy chocolate one in Great Gluten-Free Vegan Eats, really rich and decadent!

Chocolate dipped fruit would be good too-- maybe just a nice platter, or on skewers?

I like the idea of tarts! Do you think I could make them in muffin cups to create individual servings? (Maybe I'll do a mix of fruit ones and chocolate ones, because the rest of you mentioning chocolate made me really want some...)

I made some very successful mini custard tarts earlier using Isa's press in almond crust, which she says can be made with gf oat flour - http://www.theppk.com/2009/09/press-in-almond-crust/ I made them in silicone cake trays. Not quite as big as a muffin tin but bigger than mini-muffin.

If you have access to chestnut puree mixing that with equal quantities of chocolate and adding in syrup and booze makes a luxurious and very easy pie filling, if you're still looking for ideas...
