Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free Pizza Crust Mix

Yes, I’m still in the process of clearing out my pantry and using up the gluten-free flours/mixes I bought on sale, including a bag of Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free Pizza Crust Mix.

Pizza is one of the foods I miss most since going gluten-free, and while places like Mellow Mushroom offer really good gluten-free pizza options, they cost a small fortune. So it’s not something I can afford to have every weekend. Or even once a month. Continue reading »

Gluten-Free Cinnamon Rolls

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. Continue reading »

Simply Organic Gluten Free Carrot Cake Mix

When I saw that Kroger had Simply Organic Gluten Free Carrot Cake Mix on closeout a few weeks ago, I snatched up a box for next to nothing. Now I wish I’d bought two, because I’d really like to try the bonus recipe on the side of the box, and I can’t find a store that still has any in stock. Continue reading »

Gluten Free All Purpose Flour

Gluten-free baking mixes and flours are expensive. When I see some on sale I tend to buy a box (or three) thinking that I might as well snap the stuff up at a decent price because, you know, I’ll end up using it all eventually. Continue reading »

Valentine Heart Cake

My most recent project was a heart cake. This is what happens when I have boxes of cake mix in my pantry that are close to their sell-by date, there’s a heart themed cake decorating contest going on, and I need some fresh fodder for my YouTube videos. Continue reading »

Rolled Fondant Snowflakes Cake

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.

iPad AirIt’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. Continue reading »

Wedding Cake with Gum Paste Roses

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. Continue reading »

Summer 2013 Issue Edible Artists Network MagazineBefore 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.
