These cupcakes are perfect for wine lovers. They contain a unique Riesling grape seed flour and Riesling oil – both specialty items – and some Riesling wine. What does this mean? That these treats are an adults-only goodie! The batter also has numerous other more-traditional ingredients, so they are, indeed, cupcakes, not just “winecakes.” The frosting is a pear mascarpone that is topped with chopped walnuts before serving. Tasty and different – you can’t beat that combination!

These yummy super duper cupcakes besides being gluten free do not have any dairy or corn in them. Soy-free shortening added to the dry ingredients, makes them perfectly light and fluffy non-allergic cupcakes. You do not even have to use a food processor; simply use the paddle attachment of your cake mixer to cut in the shortening. Adding sprinkles to the topping gives them a look that is really deliciously appealing.

One of the biggest food trends around — and the word “trend” barely applies because wheat gluten sensitivity is very real — are gluten free cupcakes. These treats are made from a gluten free cake mix, coconut extract, coconut milk, butter-flavored vegetable shortening, and eggs. When it comes to frosting them, you have two choices: gluten free whipped frosting with coconut extract mixed in, or frozen whipped topping mixed with finely chopped pineapple.
