1  COOKING / Dessert / Re: A few of my cakes on: March 28, 2008 08:16:23 AM
would you mind sharing how you made the chocolate modelling clay? I've used a few different recipes and never been able to get anything that worked just how I wanted it to, or how it claimed it should work even. Your cakes are absolutely beautiful, I'm sure that the recipients were absolutely thrilled!

I checked it out and the book is called "Gluten Free Vegetarian" by Donna Klein. She's an excellent author, I have two of hers (the italian and mediterranean ones) and i love them both. i check this one out from the library though and as i try it, i'll let you know how it is Smiley

also Sheese is a really excellent cheese sub which tastes good even on crackers and it comes in tons of flavors like blue cheese, mozzarella, sharp cheddar, smoked cheddar, gouda etc. it's imported from scotland though and, therefore, SUPER expensive. but worth it if you're looking for a really really good vegan cheese.

i would suggest soups as the person above me did and in order to make sure you get full (as most of us would off of gluten laden carbs) try eating lots of protein in your meals and not having just like.. a salad. i would suggest things like baked tofu or tofu scrambles for breakfast. also, you can make veggie burgers and just sub out the bread crumbs in most recipes for gluten free ones or just use a lot of rice and expect it to kind of crumble and scramble up (which might even be really really good, who knows).

also any recipe which uses tempeh as its protein source would be fine.

my friend is a vegetarian and her dad is a celiac so she always looks for recipes that they can enjoy together and i know she's found some really good cook books at our local library (which is TINY) so i'm sure if you check out a library or do an amazon search or something you could come up with some titles to check out. good luck Grin

just fyi for anyone  wanting to make these, i've made green tea cupcakes before (following a recipe from vegan cupcakes take over the world) and didn't have matcha powder BUT did have some powdered green tea (it was just green tea powder plus maltodextrin or some similar natural sweetener) and so i used it in place of the matcha and had the use almost three times the amount called for. it came out with a VERY light green color but very nice, light flavor.

thanks everyone Cheesy I really enjoy coloring my fondant and i also really enjoy working with it. a lot of people have oppositions to the material but in all hoesty, i don't think it makes much difference flavorwise and its quite fun to work with, IMO.

i love using bright colors in my cakes because they always seem so much more fun. and they're a nice contrast to the gross new england weather we've been having lately.

i've never tried marshmallow fondant and, although I could use vegan mallows they're fairly on the expensive side and i think it is most likely just easier for me to stick to regular fondant. vegan marshmallows are difficult to come by anyhow, but thanks for the suggestion.

9  COOKING / Dessert / more cake project :) on: February 21, 2008 07:38:41 PM
Here are some more pictures of cakes I've made for my senior project (which is described http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=224440.0 )


this was a 2-layer 4" vanilla raspberry cake stacked on a 6" 2-layer chocolate raspberry cake


the cakes were sandwiched with raspberry jelly and frosted with raspberry buttercream and then covered in the green and white fondant


this cake was made based on a design requested by a friend for an event she hosted as part of her senior project.


this was my first time really coving a large cake with fondant and i must say, it was more difficult than anticipated but i really enjoy working with it. I had some issues which I covered up by sticking flowers in, but I think it came out well. The cake was three layers of  9" vanilla on the bottom and three layers of 6" chocolate on top, all frosted in vanilla buttercream and covered with fondant and fake flowers.

all of my cakes are also vegan Smiley
10  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Re: Rice & ? I need some help on: February 19, 2008 05:35:21 PM
I often buy cans of veggie soup and then to make a heartier, fast dinner i'll heat up the soup and stir in some leftover rice (i also use left over barley or w.e other grain i have in the fridge)

also, i second the idea of using coconut milk to cook it. mmmm Cheesy
