Wow holiday guests with creme brulee

I've mentioned before that I feel passionate about keeping my home as gluten free as possible.  However, we all must admit that some gluten-free cakes, cookies, etc. aren't always as palatable as one might hope.  One sure way to wow your guests and keep yourself free from anxiety that glutinous crumbs are contaminating your kitchen is to cook fabulous desserts that are naturally gluten free.  

My friends seem split on weather or not jello is an appropriate dessert, but I intend to get better comments on creme brulee.  A friend of mine just sent be a delightful little book packed full of gluten-free dessert recipes from  It's called Elegantly easy Creme Brulee & Other Custard Desserts by Debbie Puente.  The recipes are inspired from the classic french creme brulee to the inclusion of the mexican cajeta and a variety of fruits including mangos and pineapple.  One amazing recipe shows a creme brulee served in an ice bowl with edible flowers frozen inside of it.
