Thanks, Dave, but it was short lived. I ended up making Mexico Karen's Peach poundcake as a house warming present for my best friend. I finally got to see her new place tonight as I went to tea, and that cake is so easy and delicious!

Then I got home to a message that a friend wants a shower cake for August 23rd! At least it is over a month away and is only a shower cake!

Hadn't planned on baking anything today but it's unusually cool today, so I may make a batch of hamburger buns and some zucchini bread.

The wedding cake was (from bottom) carrot, chocolate, marble and lemon. There 3 dozen sugar sunflowers of varoius sizes and leaves and the layers are literally suspended on plastic plates and pillars at varying angles. Other views are in my profile photo album.

Attachment 7354
The groom's cake was a special touching gift from the bride to her new hubby. His best friend, who he would have chosen as his best man, died a few years ago and the Game of Life was something they played together often.
beautiful cakes!!

What is the reason for this "Gluten Free" craze? I use gluten anytime I am making all wheat or all rye breads. They have insufficient gluten for my type of baking. Are my ears going to fall off or something?
I am about to take my first attempt at knead-free sourdough bread out of the oven. Looks good so far through the pyrex casserole bowl in which I cooked it.

there is nothing wrong with gluten. I use it as well any time I make bread. it just makes a better finished product. but there is a disease
out there called 'celiac disease' in which the body can't process gluten
and certain other proteins and such and it can like, KILL you. it is not,
however, as common as people are making it out to be. it's kind of
become the new thing to blame everything on, sort of like the 'disease
of the month' because it was recently discovered that there is a link
between autism and celiac disease. gluten sensitivity that isn't related
to celiac disease is basically a food allergy.
but no, your ears won't fall off!!

5 lbs Unbleached All-Purpose flour Whole wheat flour
Rye flour
Soy flour
Rolled oats - ground into "flour" consistency
Wheat germ
Powdered milk
Salt
Dry yeast - 8 tsp or 3 packages dry yeast
Pinch sugar - to proof yeast
Water - 105F - 115F

I make a bread of these ingredients (I just throw it together so I don't have a real recipe and the bread looks and tastes different each time) that I use to make regular loaves, cinnamon loaves, pizza and pizza fritta with.

In the case of my DH, and most people who go gluten free, it is definitely not a CRAZE. He suffers from Celiac disease which means his digestive system can not break down gluten in any form and the symptoms include severe cramping, constipation and even vomitting. Hope that clears things up for you.

And MsMofet the MUFFINS are gluten free - the carrots and bananas are naturally that way.

Sorry, but in my house this is no laughing matter.
