Something about fall had me craving chicken and dumplings, so I used this recipe from my favorite gluten free blogger, and her recipe for biscuits as the dumplings. Delicious.
Next, the cake. Silvana has a great vanilla birthday cake recipe in her second book, and I was to bring along the frosting to use in class.
The finished cake. I came home after the kids were asleep, and it was a challenge, but the cake made it till morning so they could see it before we cut it.
The kitchen showed signs of wear despite my clean-as-I-go philosophy, but I'm happy to report that I restored it to normal order by breakfast the next morning. If you know me, you know that's what makes me happy!
