Birthday Cupcakes!

One of the saddest things about being GF is birthdays. Your own or someone else's. When you're at a birthday party, you can't eat the cake and it always looks so GOOD, doesn't it? And when it's your own birthday, you either have to make do with fruit or a GF baked good, which is never that great anyway. It's enough to make you want to skip your birthday this year!

Lizzie put an end to that on my bday this year. She knows how much I used to love treats like Whoopie Pies and Devil Dogs, so for my big (I'm not saying how big) day this year, she made me cream filled chocolate cupcakes that were out of this world. I'm not kidding! The chocolate cake tasted like cake, not cardboard, and the cream was sublime.

She made the cupcakes using Bob's Red Mill Chocolate Cake Mix and then piped in a clone of the Hostess cupcake cream using a piping bag with a large star tip. (Any large tip would work fine, though.) Here's the cream recipe. Give it a try!

Cupcake Cream Filling

Beat together 1 c. shortening, 1 1/2 c. confectioner's sugar and 2 c. Marshmallow Fluff (or marshmallow cream). Add in 1 1/2 t. vanilla and mix until blended.
