Sometimes you've just gotta eat a cupcake. Am I right? That was me this morning. Must-eat-cupcake-now :-) And what better way than a grain-free, protein and fiber packed cupcake? So I made my friend Elana's vanilla cupcakes from her new cookbook. If you haven't heard, Elana's new cookbook, Gluten-Free Cupcakes, 50 Irresistible Recipes Made With Almond and Coconut Flour is available to pre-order now at a big discount. For only a little while longer it costs only $9.00. So get 'um while they're hot folks. This book is awesome. I can't wait to make another recipe!
I topped Elana's vanilla cupcakes with a variation of this frosting, minus the orange peel, and with a little English Toffee liquid stevia. Elana also has excellent frostings in her new book. In the introduction she advises India Tree natural food coloring, and that's exactly how I colored this frosting. I even topped it with India Tree sprinkles. Zoe and Ashley were so excited :-)
