Anybody got any ideas for lightening up bread recipes? It's a basic stable of most of our diets and there ha to be a way of cooking lighter - I mean Weight Watchers cuts the calories almost in half, an it' can't all be the smoke an mirrors solution of baking the loaf smaller and cutting the slice thinner can it?


The only good thing about falling off the wagon is that it doesn't go anywhere until you're ready to climb back up into the driver's seat again.

My daughter makes a simple, tasty fondant by heating marshmallows in the microwave and adding enough powered sugar to make it workable. You get really messy hands when you're working tis to the right consistency, but it tastes fabulous (never been a fan of fondant - don't like the taste) and is really easy to work with.

Hope your cupcakes turned out well.

Sounds like a good plan to get back into it before you try making the cupcake. I have never made fondant.

Good Luck!

I'm probably getting ahead of myself, since I haven't baked a cake from scratch in over forty years. But I've been almost obsessed the last few days with coming up with an Irish Coffee cupcake. Coffee-flavored cake with Irish whiskey in the batter and a simple whipped cream frosting (since Irish coffee is always topped with whipped cream). Garnish -- my kitchen is totally unequipped to deal with anything like fondant, but I keep thinking of a fondant Irish triskell (a three-pointed design with a spiral inside). Hmmm...how could I do the triskell without fondant?

Maybe I should try baking some chocolate or vanilla from scratch to get back into practice first?
