  1. This is AWESOME! I vote that Aunt Inga is from MN/ND. (If I win can I get on the list to preorder your cookbook?! 🙂

  2. Way too funny – it even made my dog bark! The “recipe” I use for homemade cake flour is from Rose Levy Berenbaum, but it requires a little math and works best with weight versus volume: 85% all-purpose flour and 15% cornstarch (e.g., if you needed 1000g of cake flour you would use 850g AP and 150g cornstarch). Even in delicate white cake it works beautifully.

  3. I always listen to Aunt Inga! lol she is hilarious!! thanks for the tip too……Aunt Inga shared it with me a few months ago and saved me a trip to the store!!
