KILLER kupcakes... gluten-free!
It was my birthday week...and I get the daily email from Nicole Hunn's gluten-free on a shoestring blog... Easter cupcakes! I have not made cupcakes in awhile, but I have made a lot of cakes and muffins, and holy KATS, what you realize about cupcakes? It is that they are very TIDY. Just their own tiny, neat little package, no fussing, no slicing, one nice serving. OK, sure, they have been very fashionable in some quarters, even TWEE and TRENDY: as the wife and I joke "get yer free-range Brooklyn artisanal cupcakes here!".
I can make artisanal cupcakes too...and as I remark to the wife "now I need to make a tiny little cupcake stand, like my cake stand!" and she is like "to hold just ONE cupcake???" "right" "how CUTE!" and I am like "how tidy!". She wants me to make a bunch of large flower pots. I think cute little cupcake stands made at the same time would be hilarious.
With this recipe I did not bother with the decorations she used in the recipe, and I have to make things dairy-free, so used margerine for butter and soy milk and dairy-free chocloate for the frosting AND, inside? I did not see any reason to not put chocolate chunks into the cupcakes, then I made my mom's recipe chocolate frosting and put MORE chocolate chips on top of THAT... and finally, if a person wanted the vanilla cupcake made chocolate, just add some spoonfuls chocolate powder and a little more milk to the batter, ta da! (the wife told me "you're not gonna post that picture of me with the frosting pan are ya?" but we all know it is better to blog it first and apologize later...)
