Gluten-free cupcakes

It’s true.

Gluten-free Dreams Cake/Cupcake Mix

This cake/cupcake mix is from Cherrybrook Kitchen’s “Gluten Free Dreams” line, and we found it at Nugget Market. Besides being gluten-free, it’s “peanut-free, dairy-free, egg-free, and nut-free.” It also contains no brown rice, fruit juice, or soy, which means that I can actually eat it. It’s a miracle mix.

I baked and decorated the cupcakes and took them to a holiday gathering to see what people would think. The consensus was this: “great flavor but dry.” Or according to one particularly vocal person, “It’s not just dry; it’s like it sucks the moisture out of your tongue.”

Two cupcakes for breakfast, please!
