The Cake Actually Fell!

At nine Wednesday night I finally begin making cupcakes so Max could bring one to school tomorrow (another student is bringing cupcakes for his birthday). I realized an hour before that I was out of gluten free cake mix, but I found a recipe in a GF cookbook and thought I'd be okay. I should add that this was a cookbook I never use, full of starchy recipes, and the one bread recipe I tried from there was not impressive. So, why did I think I could make a decent cupcake from this book? Good question. I have no idea...
and this was the result. Yah. I have been baking for many, many years, gluten free baking for a year now, and I've never had a cake fall. Until now. So at 10:00 at night, I'm at Safeway hoping they have a gluten free Betty Crocker mix. Thank you, Betty.


  1. oops! Guess there is a first time for everything, huh?

  2. well I guess you know what to do with that cookbook huh? Use it as background paper
