Alright, Bryan...why don't you do the #cherrypie for tomorrow. Have fun decorating and send is the samples.

Ok...so I did this. Each one no bigger than 3" across, individual mini cherry pies decorated as you see inspired by my love of the #nightsky 
I call it Under the Cherry Moon...cause Dammit I make the prince of pies... #dadjokesftw #loveyourjob #nevermediocre #eatlocal #bakeglobal #skechydude
I should have taken a photo of the whole array...57 #puffpastry square cups filled with a #lemoncurd and a little drizzle of #creamcheeseicing; 4cm x 4cm each with a dough that kept becoming too sticky and unworkable after 5m in the kitchen air. 6h of my work day, over 2 days, and I still wouldn't trade a single moment of what I do.

#pastrychef #companyman #corporatecheflife #catering #gobuynewshoes #skechydude
#bananas #oats and #nutella come together for today's #breakfast muffin at #skechers with a drizzle of a nutella #buttercream on top. 
Don't you wish you made shoes, and did it where I make pastries?
So I got a new job, and then #2weeks in i got a promotion to #pastrychef . And they already do #glutenfreedessert weekly. This Thursday I had the honor of building the base for this GF #bananasfoster bar.

I wish I should invite you all to try out,. And maybe eventually you can. But for now, I didn't sell out, I bought in.

In #brightestday, in #blackest forest uh...cake.

Had an idea that led in two directions, so we go both. Start with the #traditional, and it's a #blackforestcake on the left. #kirsch soaked cherries and all. Then to the right, smoother use for my #blackvelvet. #Charcoal infused #darkchoclate cupcakes filled with a traditional black forest filling, then a #cherrymousse atop that all inside the little cupcake. Finally some more #kirschwasser infused into the whipped cream frosting and topped with those soaked cherries as well.

Y'all know by now I like to repeat myself...so here we go again. The quickest way to someone's heart is through their stomachs, right? Well I've been welcomed with open hearts and arms at my new job and I've not even been there a week yet. It's my trainer's birthday, and I want to get into their baking prep work as my focus so what better multiple nails to hit on the head than all those in one fell swoop. The birthday boy made his choice and his curious palate requested these lovelies:

#ChicagoStyle #Buttercake modeled after #ChicagoStylePopcorn with my own extra #cheesy twists. And as always, 100% #glutenfree, 100% #fromscratch, 100% #frommykitchen

It takes a very special, VERY short kind of #stormtrooper to be chosen as honor guard to the prize flower of #LordVader. And these ones are even shorter than @hamillhimself 
Plucked from my growing #BlackVelvet #RoseGarden, this cupcake is topped with a bright #Strawberry #Buttercream. A vibrant #crimson riding gently atop the mournful, black-gloved hand...I give you The #Padme.

I know I'm probably being cheesy...but these turned out fantastic. There had to be more to the #pateachoux than the #CreamPuffs and #eclairs and a simple Google search turns up quickly what I want to do... #gourgeres . What #Glutenfree diner would ever turn down a fluffy, light #cheese filled baked roll? Not me!

More practice, more evolution, more retakes... #blackvelvet #glutenfreecupcakes with a #beet infused #SwissMerengue

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.

Today's project from total scratch...and I mean total. Ground up some #buckwheat and #quinoa to make the flour base, then a fairly standard construction for a random #quickbread to make this lovely concoction.

#GlutenFree #Applesauce cake with an #apricot glaze.

For those following me awhile, yeah I'm kinda ramping things up again for a reason...hopefully. I'll let you know in a couple weeks. In the meantime, think good thoughts and hope the producers liked me. I'm going to get back to practicing.

#pâteàchoux #round2 
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.

I have weird tastes.

If you follow this account, that's not a surprise to you. #ChicagoStyle #ButterCake, #garlicchocolate, so forth and so on... So really it should be no surprise that when the wife bought me an ice cream maker I made this; #BrownButter #Thyme #icecream 
I have weird tastes.

#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.
