Happy Birthday Dad! These gluten free cupcake bites are all the rage right now, very popular. And since you're celebrating a big birthday, I thought I would make up a batch in your honor. With love, here are some delicious, mostly healthy, gluten free cupcake bites for you!
Dad, I warn you, these are not easy to make, so don't try this at home! Maybe Mom can make some for you to tide you over until I get there for the celebration.
And by the way, these cute little gluten free cupcake bites are not my own invention. The idea for them comes from Bakerella's book, Cake Pops. You may want to check it out, it's a gorgeous, fun and original cookbook. Speaking of which, if you haven't already, check out my recent recipe for gluten free Chocolate Raspberry Cake Pops.
My husband and children thoroughly enjoyed these decadent little gluten free treats. Though my husband said that instead of calling them gluten free Cupcakes Bites I could call them “Cake in a Cup.” He could not believe that the “wrapper” of the cupcake was made of chocolate and edible, telling me he thought it was a paper wrapper until he bit into it.
This may be the most complicated recipe I have posted here. Ever. As you can see, there are quite a lot of instructions above. Don't be scared though, if you can organize all of your equipment before you get started on making the actual cupcake bites, this project will not be quite so daunting.
