Sometimes when I'm trying out a new recipe, I find it's a challenge to locate a particular piece of baking equipment called for in the directions. This can turn into a scavenger hunt, if you are looking for a small size of a particular pan rather than a large one. To help out, I've compiled a list of online retailers when you are looking for new baking equipment:
1. Sur la Table - A great resource, as they offer shopping in store, online and by catalog. They also offer cooking classes in their stores.
2. Williams-Sonoma - Another great place to shop. They have stores around the country and offer shopping by catalog and online as well.
3. Fantes - Located in Philadelphia, Fantes has a local store and offers cake decorating courses. They have a great online shop that has a great assortment of equipment for bakers as well as some things for cooks.

What's Going On?
I was a very lucky woman and received a copy of the Culinary Institute of America's Baking & Pastry book along with their culinary dvd's from my family for my birthday and our anniversary. After watching all the DVDs, I decided to work my way through the CIA's Baking and Pastry book - of course making it gluten free. There were so many skills that I wanted to develop and work on. I hope you will be interested in sharing my journey with me.
