    , this looks amazing! I like to work with chocolate too. I know someone with gluten allergy and if I have to bring something for coffee or snack, I like to bring chocolate. This is a good idea for next time!!!
    Another question I can not really find an answer is: How can I make cake flour?
    Thanks!!

      Hi Wilma,

      You can make a substitute for cake flour by measuring out 1 cup of all-purpose flour, and replacing 2 tablespoons of that flour with 2 tablespoons of cornstarch.

      Cake flour has a lower protein content than all-purpose flour, so it makes for a more tender cake.

      Happy Baking!

    Can the silicone fondant molds be used to make hard candy? Will they easily withstand that heat?

      They are specific molds for making candy and work way better than the plastic one for fondant. The fondant mold don’t do well with extreme heat of any kind…I have found. I hope this helps
