If I'm gonna have a #creampuff then I ought to make an #eclair at some point, right? #Raspberry #CremePatissiere fills these light, #fluffy #pateachoux treats with a rich #vanilla glaze. I oughta know how to do my basics, but no one said they had to be totally traditional.

If you're local and want one of these, made today, I'm giving them away at tonight's pub quiz.  @commonspacela  starting at 7pm.

Taking notes from those last ones coated in a #smoked #chocolate glaze, I made a couple changes to the technique to adjust as one needs to in the world of #glutenfreebaking and out come these little beauties.

#glutenfreecreampuffs filled with a #Maple - #Cinnamon  #cremepatisierre 
Sorry...I ate most of them already.

Someone said to me #glutenfree #puffpastry was impossible. I think it was an old boss. Well...you know that scene in Monty Python & the Holy Grail where the Frenchman taunts Arthur and his knights so terribly. That's kinda how I feel.

Does it brown perfectly? Not really.

Does it taste flaky and crispy? Hell yes....like a light, flaky #shortbread. And if that's as close as I can get in this #glutenfreelife then it's what I'll take and celebrate.

Feeling #classical today. I never went to #culinaryschool and haven't taken a single #pastryclass in my life. I haven't learned from ANYONE in a classroom setting how to cook, bake, or candy-make. Being the case, I never had the occasion to make the things I should know how to make under the basic classic compositions. So today was dedicated to working out and testing some #glutenfree standard pastries. 
First, here...I've never made #pateachoux before. My piping portions need some work, but otherwise I present to you Gluten Free #CreamPuffs filled with a #cinnamon and #maple #pastrycreme, then coated with a lightly #smokedchocolate and a dash of #seasalt.

Second...well that's another post to be had....these are pretty awesome and if you want one then come on out to my #GeeksWhoDrink #PubQuiz tonight at @theblinddonkeylbc at 8pm. Extra bonus desserts for those who are smart and possess rapidly clean penmanship.

#practicemakesperfect right? If that's true then I'm getting closer and closer with each batch. Last night is the best results so far and I still have until #september to get it right.
For the first time ever, I'm entering a #bakeoff in the #lacountyfair with a couple of my creations. You've seen the #pbandj cupcake so no surprise there, but here is something I've actually been working out in my head for 2 years...The Churriclair!
#glutenfree baked #churros with #anchochiles in the #cinnamon coating, then filled with a #horchata #cremepatisierre 
They look and taste every bit as good as that sounds.

Arguments in the last remaining Madigan Household of Orange County tend to go something like this: "Oh I love these #cookies! But I don't think they're #glutenfree so..." "What kind?" "They're called #laceys." "Well that looks more like the manufacturer's name. It has an #apostrophe in it." "Fine..." "It's a #possessive noun. Who would name a cookie with a posessive?" "I said fine..." Couple hours and some research later, "Babe...they're called #Florentines." "I said FINE." Which is usually my cue to acknowledge I need to make some. So here we go...first time ever trying such a #fragile #Italian delicacy. But if the wife wants to share Florentine toffee cookies, you make her a batch of gluten free Florentines to share.

Heck...my XC is Italian. Maybe she'll want to see these crisp bad boys get their kinks worked out and make an appearance on the cookie basket at Hash. If THAT happens...well...you know...come on down for sweet crunchy awesomeness.

Even if these cookies don't get featured, come down. I'm starting to slowly produce for the public again.

Come on out. I like feeding me, but I love feeding you.

When having a latke party, it sometimes pays to be somewhat traditional. Sure you can go buy or make some rugelach for dessert, but why not these? Hand made pavlova with a mixed berry compote and whipped cream. I'd call them all #homemade but with all items from scratch that would get repetetive. 
Look...If a fifteen year old garbage disposal devours a shared size serving all on his lonesome, I must have baked something right.

It's #PumpkinSpice Season for Everything right? So why should I hide from it given that at least once a year I enjoy a sparse bit of the #ubiquitous #seasonal seasoning? With a little twist on my Pumpkin Quick Bites it's a #Pumpkin & #Sage muffin with a #Brittle "#Streusel" sort of topping. Want to randomly find things I'm still creating?

If I can experience another kind of rebirth in my 40s, then so can one of the products I'm proud to call one of my unique collection of cupcakes. Version....I think we're on to 3.0 now? Presenting my latest twist on the #RootBeerFloat. Still the same rich #RootBeer infused #chocolate cupcake, now topped with a #VanillaBean #SwissButtercream, and my own in-house Root Beer Glass.

Most of the time, the laborious process is worth the wait. Sometimes you'll have to be patient with us at Bluebeard's while we ake our time to produce the artisanal gluten free treats you're used to. This for instance...it's time for our Fall Sangria Cupcake!

Last post you saw the fruit floating gleefully in our house #Sangria recipe. Now we've taken a portion of that fruit, and turned it into this season's #SangriaJam. The flavors of fall abound with #Blackberries, #Pomegranate, & #GalaApples floating in a rich #Tempranillo. Premiering this Saturday at Meet The Makers!

Sometimes you have to prepare ahead... Next week, at the October #MeetTheMakers, we will be premiering our Fall Sangria cupcake. Right now you see it in its initial form, #pomegranite & #blackberries floating about in a fragrant #tempranillo. We'll be extracting some of the fruit in a few days, and making a compote from it to fill our rich vanilla cupcakes, then topped with a #pinotnoir #buttercream frosting.

Plus the Sangria itself will be on hand at the bar! Yes I said "bar"...grab a drink and check out the art. We'll be out front for your snacks as always.

It's October, the era of #pumpkinspice everything has fully set in. Not to be left out, and cause I like pumpkin in moderation, it's Pumpkin Spiced #Fudge with Roasted #Pepitas. 
If you think the cupcakes and rolls look good, you haven't experienced my artisan fudge. As a baker, I'm relatively new...less than a year in to learning. I just discovered a natural affinity. But I've been making fudge for 20 years. Now that the heat of summer is slowly fading back, it's time to whip up some sugar and chocolate again.

Check the website for a list of our regular flavours. Holidays are coming, and everyone loves a pile of sugar at the office!

Join us tomorrow at @madebymillworks
 From 11 till 3 we'll be tented up at 240 Pine Avenue once again. Cupcakes, cheese crackers, dog treats, you name it! Or I'll make it!

It's Alive!!! Pulsing, breathing, growing in the microwave of all places...our first attempt at simple White Sandwich bread. You tell me...does it look like I'm on the right track? Simple, elegant...and I'm hoping it turns out tasty and fluffy too. I'm sure I'll tell the world when it's done.

For now...do you bake GF yeast breads? How do you proof? Have you strayed from traditional methods? Do you experiemtn with various ways of heating and keeping the world of your rising breads moist? Here's what I've tried and found can work: *Sunlight - believe it or not the best rises I've gotten have been from in the sunlight, sealed under plastic wrap. As Fall sets in to CA, it's being less effective, so perhaps it was just a summer heat wave thing but I did some data gathering during that time and found --- * 94 degrees fahrenheit - on the best days in the sun, that's how hot the dough got. 94d fahrenheit. So...maybe that's all it takes. 94d and moisture. So... *My White Loaf (which was not my nickname for my son at birth) - This loaf is being profed in the microwave with a bowl of water. I boil the water for 3-4m, then put the dough in, reheating after 20-30m. The probe has been showing me a steady 94-95d the whole time. And it's rising.

So...fellow bread-questers...take my data as you will and play with it yourself. Or have you done osm eof your own. I'd love to discuss. Gluten Free baking seems to incorporate more and more straying from the baking norms of wheat flours, and as good as it would be for my bakery, I shouldn't be the only one out there to feed the intolerant masses.

When you ask any #glutenfree dieter what they miss the most, you'll get a variety of answers. However, the core loss remains the same thread throughout every type of bread or cake that someone laments the GF version of...#texture. For so long, the idea of a flaky, layered biscuit or bread in the gluten free arena seemed nigh impossible.

Well I can now assure you...it is merely "nigh". It is not #impossible.

You're not seeing things, here in this photo before you are a few of our latest work-in-progress (but damn look am I close or what?!) Gluten Free Croissants. Yes that's right, Gluten Free #Croissants from the galley of Bluebeard's. Flaky, flavorful, light, fluffy...this batch is maybe a little crispy but I did say work-in-progress.

Expect to see these little half moons of bready bliss in the coming weeks at our pop-ups at @madebymillworks or order a few for your upcoming dinner party! Cousin Alan the weird gluten free one who stares as you pass the Pillsbury? Surprise him with a few of Blue's Moons this year!

Presenting version 2.0 of The Anchurro. Otherwise known around here as "What did you do, Ray?" Well...I worked up a spiced pastry cream, changed the shapes to something a little more traditional, and turned a bunch of #glutenfree #churros  into #eclairs ... #Churroclairs?

Which treats do you want to see when we come back to @madebymillworks ?

Flaky. Crunchy. Cheesy. Salty. Layered. Crispy. Oh my.... I may not be the first one to market with a cheez cracker, but I'm the first #glutenfree one with this texture. It'z hard to tell them from the thing we missed so much that I decided I had to make a gluten free version of. Look for bags to start appearing in October as we start our weekly pop-ups at #madebymillworks. Blue's Cheese Bites. NOT Bleu Cheese Bites. Although with bacon infused in there..... Flaky, layered sharp cheddar crispy crackers. Welcome back to your junk food dreams, folks. Come grab a bag and wander around the store.

The things in this photo are made in #LongBeach. But only one of them will be available exclusively at @madebymillworks in Downtown Long Beach. You do not forget the first venue to let you in the door and get your start, and in that spirit, we've made a special cupcake which will only be available at MADE. Mascarpone-Almond Frosting adorns the top of a Dark Chocolate-Espresso cupcake. Infuse a little charcoal and it becomes the Bluebeard's version of a Black & White.

Rich, light, layered, moist, and as always if we never told you, you wouldn't believe they're gluten free. #BetterThanYourMoms

And then you start again.

I'd gotten a few contacts from severely sensitive celiacs, and finding they couldn't have our products we went back to the drawing board. Working out a few flour blends based on our current and upcoming products, everything is now safe for those most sensitive of this #glutenfreelife from the sangria cupcakes to the soft baked pretzels. 
We're building our public appearances bit by bit. Come see us this month at @madebymillworks for the Meet the Makers Craft Fair on the 23rd & 24th. It's my birthday weekend too...come maker me feel happy.

In October we're at the Downtown LA Art Walk on 10/12.

More farmers markets coming soon. Keep your eyes on the website and we'll be out there soon enough!

Baruch Atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech haolam,

Hamotzi lechem min haaretz.

There are things I miss being #glutenfree. Heck there are many things we ALL miss when having to lose the binding glue of breads and pastries. But they can come back a portion of the way, and at least good enough to run out and eat for yourself. Hand-crafted, hand-braided, handily handled...it's Bluebeard's Gluten Free #Challah bread. There's always a Jewish holiday somewhere around the corner, heck just come over for dinner at sundown on a Friday and we'll show you. Challah is a centerpiece of every large meal, and having to give it up was among the harder problems I faced in the #glutenfreelife 
Not any more. Nor for you either. Gluten Free Braided Challah. Made with our new propietary flour blend that is utterly 100% gluten free and safe for sensitive celiacs. Order yourself a loaf for an upcoming #Shabbat, the upcoming #HighHolyDays, or #Chanukkah is just around the corner.

OK...so maybe a 92 degree heat wave is not the most conducive weather to a Mascarpone Frosting. Still...what it lacks in aesthetic perfection, it more than makes up for in flavor. This thing tastes amazing. Specially designed for our friends at @madebymillworks and available exclusively at the store. You will not find this cupcake at one of our Farmers Markets; only when we make our appearances where we got our start, MADE by Millworks. A Mascarpone-Almond frosting adorns the top of a Dark Chocolate Espresso cake, done in our black velvet style.

I may not make cookies(yet), but I'll be damned if a Jewish baker originally from New York isnt going to somehow make a Black & White.

Because everything can be made better if you look at it right, preserving take two on The King. Inspired by the legends of Elvis' diet, it's a bacon inspired cupcake with brown sugar, maple, and hickory smoke. Topped with a smoked peanut butter frosting, and finished with a #baconwrapped plantain slice.
You want to eat this.
I want to let you.

To my palate, best one I've come up with so far. Please, let me put your money where my mouth is.

I may never have been a huge fan of his music, but I absolutely have to respect any man whose diet would be the eventual death of him. In that spirit, and maybe because tomorrow is the anniversary of the release of 'Suspicious Minds', that I present to you the #Elvis inspired, The King.

And then it was time for a left turn into Bread Country... After coming up with 22 relatively unique flavors for our #glutenfreecupcake line, plus changing seasonal options, it's time to start rolling out that most difficult of gluten free treasures...the #bread. For the longest time, the majority of available #glutenfreebread options were at best a loofah sponge, with the weight of a good #doorstop. We're working on that...join us on the recipe/journey of 1000 steps towards those things we miss: Grilled Cheese, #PB&J with potato chips, ham & swiss on #sourdoughbread

Step one...soft baked pretzels. No, #glutenfree friends and fans, you did not read that wrong...gluten free #softbakedpretzels not just as good as any you'd find at the mall, but better. Our cupcakes may be #betterthanyourmoms but these are #betterthanyourmall ...cause you can have them(if you're gluten free that is)

Wanna know the best part about Blue's Soft Baked Twists? They freeze, the refridgerate, they microwave and bake up in the toaster oven oh so beautifully! And if they do that, and they're not delicately covered in buttercream frosting then that must mean.....THEY SHIP!!!!!! Wherever you are, no matter how far, we're willing to let you pay the shipping fees for anywhere in the world. Our reach goes as deep as your pocket, and as far as your local postal service will drag a package.

Only $7.50 a bag(half dozen)

If I consider myself a bit of a punk, somewhat rebellious, especially in my choice to become a baker, then is this something like revealing my set list for the show tomorrow night at @madebymillworks

Raspberry Lemonade

Do I really need to write another big long full description?

Evolve or die. Everything must adapt to newer needs, and that includes our classics. With a little upgrade the old lemon cake turns into Raspberry Lemonade. Chiffon Cupcake with a Lemon Curd filling and Raspberry Buttercream. Send the summer months out right this Saturday at the Made by Millworks pop up faire, 2-9pm in downtown Long Beach.

If you're going to make a cupcake for Saturday Night (#SummerSangria), then you might as well think ahead and have one ready for Sunday Morning. Sometimes you want the hair of the dog, and you can always find that with our #Mimosa Cupcakes. But sometimes you just need a quiet morning on the couch, cornered in by your faithful #doggo, with a nice cup of coffee. 
Well now you can have your #coffee and eat your cake too! New from Bluebeard's, and just in time for the Saturday Faire at MADE by Millworks comes our Hazelnut Latte. A fluffy cake with a light infusion of Hazelnut Coffee, topped by a more intense Hazelnut Coffee Buttercream. Wake up, grab cupcake, get keys, pet kids, hug dog, kiss wife, off to work. See? Easy as cake. Coffee cake... #cupcakes #glutenfree #glutenfreelife  #hazelnutcoffee #coffeeshopvibes #latte #lbclocal #longbeach #nevermediocre #uncommondelicacies #localfood #eatlocal #bakeglobal

Another #pubquiz, another special#cupcake giveaway. For the latest to come aboard our good ship the Uncommon Delicacy, I host a pub quiz twice weekly. Last night, Tuesday, and tonight, Wednesdays. At @theharpinn @ 730pm it's 8 rounds of irreverent trivia, free prizes, free beer, and on many nights, free cupcakes from us.

Tonight we allow Costa Mesa a preview of the #Summer #Sangria  in advance of our Maker Faire on the 19th.

Come out for the game, stay for the beer, finish the night going Dennis Rodman comes in again so I can call him Charles Barkley once again. Bonus beers, bonus cupcakes, and even some available for purchase.

They even have dinner. Then I sell or award you dessert.

Ok who can wait 72 hours? What was once a steeping watermelon sangria has been boiled down and converted into a Sangria Jelly now filling these moist vanilla cupcakes. Topped with a Chardonnay Butter Cream to compete the package, just in time for the peak of the heat, it's our Summer Sangria Cakes!

Yes you read that right...Sangria...in a cupcake. Available through the first day of Autumn, only from Bluebeard's Uncommon Delicacies.

Unicorns are a pain in the ass... The frosting may change when the seasons do, but when Autumn arrives will be ready with our Caramel Apple Cupcake. Nana Shirley's homemade applesauce makes another appearance using the fall apple harvest. Generation 1 here topped with an apple infused Autumn unicorn Buttercream. It's like I took fall on the East Coast and put it on a cupcake.

Some things you just don't need props for. Chicago as a city stands on its own, so should its cupcake. Plus I think I like this version better. You guys?
