Polenta is basically cornmeal and therefore suitable for gluten-free baking and cooking. Try to get rather finely ground polenta, as it can be very grainy otherwise (and that can ruin the texture of your muffins). You can find the recipe and more photos here.

I need some advice from any professionals around here.

I am throwing my parents a surprise 25th anniversary party and I wanted to do a replica of their wedding cake. I've talked to one bakery over at Holiday Market and they said it's about $5 a serving. I've also sent information to another baker that a friend has used but am still waiting to hear back from her. The original bakery closed this past winter all of the sudden.

But my aunt thinks I should do the cake to save some money since I am an only child and paying for everything myself. IF I was to do this cake how much mix would I need and buttercream? I was thinking to do the bottom layer as one cake carved and then another tier on that and then the one with the pillars for my parents to save. So maybe a 12, 8 & 6?

Or is anyone here a baker in the Metro Detroit area that could possibly do the cake?

thank you for any help you can give.
As it turns out, mint and chocolate is a wonderful flavour combination! You can find the recipe here.

Mike lovvvvvves chocolate, but I could take it or leave it. Lately, without even realizing it, I've all but ditched chocolate from my repertoire. Instead, I've been making lemon like it's goin' out of style. Mike hates lemon.

Basically I've been kind of mean.

So for Valentine's Day, I made him ALLLLLLL THE CHOCOLATE in one dessert. And even I have to admit, this thing is amazing. I just polished off my third slice, oh man. It's super easy, too -- particularly if you split it up over a couple of days. And definitely make it in advance and let it chill overnight before eating it. It significantly enhances the flavor. Enjoy!

(P.S. Coffee lovers, please come read my coffee conundrum on the full post, linked below, and give me advice. I'm a newb.)

Looking at the ingredients list, you might think this is quite a complicated cake. Let me assure you that it isn't. Each layer is very easy to make, only the chocolate layer needs to be baked (20 minutes only!). And yet it is absolutely delicious. What can I say, chocolate and coconut might be one of my favourite combinations. Because of the ground almonds, this cake is very moist. Just a warning: the coconut makes it quite rich, so don't over-indulge (I usually fail at this point...). You can find the recipe here.
