Let them eat cake

A Gorgeous Cake by The Cake Girls

I stayed awake until almost 11pm last night watching this show on WE called Amazing Wedding Cakes. I pretty much enjoy watching any show about food, but I ADORE watching a show about cake decorating. The show focused on three different cake shops in three different cities. I was most impressed with The Cake Girls in Chicago. (It may help that I LOVE Chicago!) In this episode they were making a ring box cake for an engagement party. (I searched for a picture, but couldn't find one.) It was amazing.

I think I might look into taking a class at our local Community College. I love cake decorating SO MUCH and I really want to learn more. I fell asleep last night dreaming about opening my very own Gluten Free Bake Shop....

I watch all the cake shows on tv. I love the challenges when they all have to make cakes about certain themes! My sister took some cake classes at her community college and loved them! I think you should go for it!

I love the Ace of Cakes! I love any show where they're competing and decorating. Especially the Disney themed cakes...impressive!

I almost watched that, but I changed it last minute because I'm trying to stay away from that stuff, because I'm making my own cake (which will be cupcakes) and will get depressed I cant afford for someone to make me a beautiful, ridic cake.

But I've got that same dream....someday I'll have a gf bakery...

hi! so sorry i didn't reply to your comment until now.. somehow it ended up in my spam folder ew!

i have a lot of friends with celiacs and they swear by polenta.. just make sure you make it yourself because some of the tubes have gluten!

polenta can be used to make croutons, sandwiches, as an addition to soup, etc etc etc... i posted all of the contest's entries this morning if you want some simple recipes to start you out!!!
