I’m still working on clearing out old expired stuff from my kitchen, and I finally found a use for my King Arthur Gluten Free Multi-Purpose Flour that had a sell by date of January 2013. I wasn’t all that keen to make the popover recipe on the back of the box, so I ventured to the company website for further inspiration, and I’m glad I did because it has a good selection of recipes. That’s where I found this one for gluten-free cinnamon rolls.
Well, I guess it IS January. Happy New Year everybody!
The weather where I live is bitterly cold at the moment, with record-low temperatures and crazy wind chills. This means I’ve been staying indoors as much as possible because I hate the cold, which gives me an opportunity to update my blog, and since the last post was about my new iPad, I thought I’d share some of the cake decorating videos I’ve made with it–if only to prove that I’m now using it for more than playing games.
It’s one of the new iPad Airs. I actually had the money to buy one in October but was advised to wait until Apple came out with the next generation or whatever, so I did. I got mine on November 1st from the local Apple Store, and I’ve spent the past 5 weeks or so playing My Singing Monsters and Clash of Clans on a big screen. Which is awesome.
Most folks who know me in real life understand that I don’t make cakes for people. There are several reasons for this, and I won’t bore you guys with a lengthy explanation, but basically my kitchen isn’t set up for multiple ongoing projects, and I found it very difficult to make money doing cakes from home.
Before I even begin, let me just say that I’m not a fan of the name Edible Artists Network. To me it sounds like a group of artists you can eat, and since I’m not into cannibalism, I guess I’ll just have to push aside my pedantic tendencies because it’s actually a really cool website for edible art enthusiasts.
Last week I drove up to Lexington, KY for the International Cake Exploration Societé Annual Convention. In my recent bread mix review I promised to post updates from convention because I would have my trusty Chromebook and iPhone. Well, I couldn’t connect to the hotel’s wifi for some reason, and I was so busy (plus tired by the end of each day) that I really didn’t want to spend the time or effort fighting with it.
