mother's day lunch, I get to bring desert

The in-laws are having a mother's day "brunch" with a potluck style lunch (grilled chicken) menu. I was assigned desert. No problem, but I'm just stumped on what to make. I made a lemon cake for this crowd last time.

The catch is, it has to be gluten free/celiac friendly and nut free. And easy on the dairy for the lactose intolerant branch of the family. Serving 18-20 adults and 2-3 kids. I would prefer to just make one thing cause otherwise everyone wants a little bit of both.

The restrictions aren't the problem, just my creativity and inspiration are just not there!
