Good to put these two together, the Martha Stewart book has some amazing decorative ideas that compliments this book nicely; something irresistable about monkey face muffins.

I wonder if Whole foods carries it? Cooking times are off, poor descriptions, I’m really upset. I really loathe coconut and the recipes in here are full of coconut oil, flour, milk, etc. I can tolerate a bit of coconut milk in Thai dishes, but otherwise avoid it like the plague.

It was January 2nd, almost 6 months after we opened, and it was dead.

However, I did click around the BabycakesNYC website and came across an email address they created specifically for cookbook questions. Not a plus for me. McKenna won’t shut up about what she considers healthy. So let me back up.

Quit Your Job! A Q&A with Erin McKenna of BabyCakes

So I’m looking forward to experimenting from scratch using rice flour and xanthan gum! When I tell people what I do, their eyes light up and they say one of two things: So the founding of BabyCakes is actually fairly well-chronicled.

I want people to feel like they are coming into a party when they get to the bakery. I happened to see that there were recipes for gluten-free cupcakes in a cooking magazine and grabbed it.


Similarly, coconut oil isn’t the health baddie it used to be thought to be, but it’s not the new olive oil either, and the tone Sure, coconut oil is expensive, but so is the heart attack you’ll get from eating regular baked goods – not an exact quote, but close is a bit smug. The ingredients are pricey, but as we’re not cmkenna, I’m okay replacing the coconut oil with butter or corn oil.

There are a ton of patterns. Jul 30, Sadie rated it really liked it. How very sensible of you. Feb 06, Punk rated it it was ok. To ask other readers questions about BabyCakesplease sign up. Several of the recipes I tried did not produce the described result and most of the muffins and quick breads taste the same. Thanks for bzbycakes us about the problem.

I checked out this book again recently and was able to master just about every delectable mckennx in there. Every mceknna year, people restrict for three weeks.

I got a prompt response about subbing out the Spelt flour along with suggestions for other kinds of oils I can use inst The photography in this book is really nice.

I cannot imagine any deviation or alteration to your exacting recipes. Most recipes have storage advice and a color photo. While I have a block about spending so much time and frustration on making something that offers no nutrition, I know my fiance enjoys it, so I try. It was certainly a long and involved process, but then I suppose making dairy-free icing mckfnna be!

That the ingredients they use in nckenna bakery cannot be bought by the average home cook. All of my friends were impressed with the effort and appreciated my foray into the world of gluten free baking.

I love that this book is geared toward vegans, those with allergies, and everyone.

Were there other things that you did to try to grow the customer base? I’m pretty sure I had this book on order from Amazon before it was even publishe If someone asked me what my top five gluten-free recipe books were, this one would be on the list.

The cupcakes were very good I happened to see that there were recipes for gluten-free cupcakes in a cooking magazine and grabbed it. It happens every time, without fail. The photography in this book is really nice.

Vegan is always a bit scary for me, but the author was able to diffuse a lot of my fears. The recipes look wonderful, but the vanilla one isn’t there, so I figured I HAD to get hold of the book UK edition – nothing more frustrating than reading recipes made mkenna ingredients you can’t get. The treats in this book look and sound great.

Which means I’ll never be able to replicate the cookie sandwiches I gladly mcoenna for in the bakery. I should have known that Gwyneth would never make cupcakes, even vegan gluten-free ones, because there’s no way any home cook could make these dry tasteless cakes palatable, no matter how much frosting you put on.
