Gluten-Free Success!

So I tried this delicious secret recipe I conjured up...and I think I found my perfect gluten free cupcake hit! I even surprised myself with how these turned out.

Let me introduce you to...

Mr. Gluten-free Carrot Cupcake!

He's tasty, sweet, and healthy. Topped with a ricotta icing and a dash of cinnamon, he is the perfect treat for any occasion.

The perfect texture, moist and delicate.

Ice-Cream Cupcakes

It's cupcakes! It's ice-cream! It'' cupcakes!
Haha. Okay, I'll stop with the cheesy jokes.
But really, ice-cream cupcakes are a mini version of an ice-cream cake. I make chocolate cupcakes with a dark chocolate ice-cream filling topped with vanilla buttercream frosting.

Filling them with the chocolate ice-cream, a fun activity. 
The finished product, topped with a symbolic chocolate chip.

Tiramisu Cupcakes

Tiramisu is an amazing dessert. Especially when it's made the Italian way- the right way.

So, the special Easter dessert this year was a creative combination of the delicious tiramisu cream and classic chocolate cupcakes.
I removed the center of all my fresh chocolate cupcakes, drizzled them with strong coffee and filled them with tiramisu cream and topped with cocoa powder. They were absolutely amazing!

Gluten-Free Challenge

Last week I decided to find the perfect gluten-free cupcake recipe.
I know a few people that have a hard time eating delicious foods that contain gluten and I think it would be awesome to help them.

So I'm on the hunt.

I tried a recipe last week and I'm going to be honest with you, it was semi-gross. The vanilla cupcakes were too gooey and the chocolate ones weren't chocolately enough.
I'm not giving up.

I'm challenging myself to find the perfect gluten-free recipe and master it. And share it with the world.
I'll let you know when that happens. :)

In the meantime, here is a picture of a fiber-rich, gluten-free mixed berry cobbler. It got eaten in less than 2 days, and mostly by me. It was amazing.

White Chocolate Love Cupcakes

I love these cupcakes! These are a couple different cupcakes both having the same white chocolate base in the frosting. These are so perfect for bridal showers, Valentine's day, anniversaries, or just because.
White Berry.

White Berry- White berry cake with white chocolate frosting and berry frosting, decorated with white chocolate chunk and raspberry.
White Chocolate Mocha- Chocolate cake topped with a white chocolate icing, decorated with  chocolate espresso candy, chocolate chunk and chocolate powder. This one's intense.
