Easy Nerf Cake

Simple cake covered in vanilla buttercream decorated with fondant.  The nerf bullets are inedible because they are real Nerf bullets.  One of the guests asked me if they are edible.  Target is made by a series of round cookie cutter.  

Fluffy Like Clouds Glutten Free Vanilla Chiffon Cupcakes

Chiffon cakes are my favourite cakes.  They are fluffy, moist and delicious.  Since its fluffy and light I wonder if it will hold its fluffiness if I turn it into a gluten free type cake.  I replaced my regular cake flour with my DIY GLUTEN FREE CAKE FLOUR   To make DIY Gluten Free Cake Flour measure out 2 cups Koda Farms Mochiko sweet rice flour into a small bowl and scoop out 2 tablespoons of sweet rice flour.  Add 2 tablespoons of cornstarch to the rice flour.  Stir with a whisk.   NOTE:  Mochiko sweet rice flour is smoother than the regular white rice flour.  I made a mistake of using white rice flour and the cupcake has a dent and its gritty.  It was gross! Next is the baking powder.  Generally baking powder is already gluten free.  Some baking powder brands uses wheat starch into their product so check the label.  Make sure there are no wheat products in the ingredients.  If you are looking for baking powder that is aluminium free buy organic baking powder.
