In case you missed it, I did a guest blog post for Kids with Food Allergies on October 22nd. Follow this link to see the tasty recipe!
I thought I’d post a few behind-the-scenes pictures of that cake, in case anyone is interested in more details.
I didn’t put any ingredient pictures on my guest post, so if you’re wondering what brands I used, here they are:
Here’s one of the bundt cakes fresh from the oven. You can really see the texture well in this photo.
My frosting ingredients. I was trying to make this corn-free too, but I don’t know exactly where corn can hide, so it may still be in the Earth Balance or the Rice Dream.
Teal food coloring. I got this tube at Hobby Lobby. (This does have corn in it.) I try to limit food dyes in most of our food, but when it comes to cakes they’re just too much fun. I’m sure you can get a pretty color that is close to teal using some of the natural food colorings that are starting to become available.
Quick! Get a picture of the cake before adding the frosting, just in case I totally screw it up!
Partway through frosting it. In the back, you can see a spot where I screwed up the frosting and scraped it off before starting again. The final coat of frosting covered what was left of the aborted attempt.

Kal watched me make this all day long–the day I finally did the decorating he was off from preschool. After being gently asked and sternly told to leave the kitchen several times, I couldn’t say “no” to a sweet picture with him in it!
