Baby Shower Cupcakes

Posted by kel @ sweet treats at 11:19 AM
Today is Kharli's long awaited baby shower! She's having a girl, so there simply had to be a lot of pink involved. I also needed to provide her with some gluten and dairy-free chocolate cupcakes, which obviously needed to be just as delicious as regular cupcakes.

I differentiated between gluten/dairy-free and regular by icing the gluten/dairy-free ones with white icing and coloured sugar.

The regular cupcakes were iced with pink buttercream and various decorations, including sprinkles, cachous and buttercream booties.

I just found your blog on the foodie blogroll, it's great! I had to add it to my sidebar. I love the baby booties, I had never thought of piping them out before. Thanks for the great ideas.

Hi hon - can you share your gluten free / dairy free recipe?

Thanks Mandy! They are so easy to make but look great.

Ange, here's the recipe for the gluten/dairy free chocolate cupcakes:

125g Nuttelex
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
3 tbl cocoa
2 cups gluten free SR flour (minus 3 tbls)
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract

Cream Nuttelex, vanilla & sugar until fluffy. Add eggs 1 at a time. Sift flour & cocoa, add half flour mixture & milk, stir & add other half.

Spoon into cases & bake @ 180c (160 fan forced) for 15ish minutes.

Use gluten free icing sugar (I used CSR) with Nuttelex to make the icing :)
