It's a Birthday Party with Cupcakes

My son got invited to a birthday part on Monday. "Oh no", I thought. Here we go! I haven't even gotten a chance to get into this diet and I already have to deal with glutenous cakes. So I called the mom and explained the situation and told her I would send a cupcake to the party with him.

I have not made a cupcake that my kids have liked that is gluten free. I like them but my palate is more tolerant of textures and flavors than theirs are. They love Bob's Red Mill GF Brownies so when I saw that they made a chocolate cake mix I was excited. Then I found sprinkles that were gluten free as well. Yippee!!

Here's what I used:

For the frosting I was stuck. I didn't want to buy the store stuff with the hydrogenated oils and high fructose corn syrup. So a friend of mine told me how she makes it. I used a stick of butter, powdered sugar and raw milk. I made some frosting chocolate with organic cocoa powder. This is the result:

The best part. MY KIDS LOVED THEM!! They commented "At least we know that we can have cake now". Whew! Another crisis solved.

To your health!

Hubby made me GF carrot cake for my birthday. I think we need to add pineapple to make it more moist, but it was very good.
