Time for a confession: I’ve never gone out of my way to make a gluten-free dessert before. I mean, I’ve made them, but it’s always been purely coincidental.
Right up until this past July, that is. For Gerda’s bridal shower last month, I volunteered to make half of the cupcakes. Someone else was working on the vanilla ones for the dress-shaped cake, so I figured I’d make chocolate. I was a little more hesitant when they asked I make them gluten-free, but I decided to give it a shot. I could make a test batch ahead of time and, if they didn’t work out, I’d switch to a boxed kind–one that was less likely to go wrong.
I’m happy to say that my attempt to make home-made gluten-free cupcakes went quite well, all thanks to Flippin’ Delicious’s Best Gluten Free Chocolate Cake.
