5 Wafer Paper Flower Video Tutorials   New, out today. How to make a rainbow cake with buttercream.
Apparently, I am not the only one who dislikes the non-cake-related posts. I got private messages thanking me for speaking up. Guess not everyone wants to risk getting wrathful responses to their opinions. So, although no one can dictate what is posted, I have the right to express my opinion. Oh, and no one "owns" a thread, not even the OP.  I read the rules. So, moving on......   This video was mentioned in today's "CakeWrecks." It shows an easy way to make perfectly...
You are welcome, PastryPet. AZCouture, I didn't realize I was dictating anything. It was a request.

I bake exclusively gluten free, and you cannot tell my baked goods from the gluten ones. I don't use commercial mixes as they don't produce the taste I want. But, suggestions: If your mix has xantham gum already in it, don't add any more. Even a little bit too much or too little can ruin your cake. GF cake mixes turn out better than general purpose flour mixes. Try lowering your oven temperature by 25 degrees and bake a little longer. That usually stops the shrinking.
