Grain-free, Dairy-Free option 🌈
It’s party time! We’ve made every excuse in the book to keep making these magical cupcakes; New Year’s Eve, Anniversary, Birthday Party, Finished Cleaning The House Party– you get the idea–or you will you after you take your first bite!
But full disclosure here–these are not meant for every day. They are rich indeed. But rich treats such as these and say donuts or cheesecake are wonderful in moderation!
And what a treat these are to make! Grab your little helpers and get baking! They’ll love dipping the funfetti cupcakes into the magic shell + decorating them with pastels. Your kitchen will pretty much look like a unicorn paradise. 😉
But the best thing about these cupcakes is the taste–they are moist, springy with delicious vanilla funfetti flavor, perfect for any special occasion.
We have some tips for you today:
-This recipe is also wonderful without the magic shell, if you prefer to make a more traditional funfetti cake or cupcakes.
-For the dairy-free version, use almond milk and Earth Balance Spread in place of milk and butter. Also, instead of white chocolate chips, use dairy-free Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips. In this case, I recommend coloring your frosting pink. It will look beautiful under the dark chocolate shell!!
-Here is the vegan version of our grain-free funfetti cupcakes.
-Here are gluten-free dye-free “Jimmies” for the cupcakes and these gluten-free “Pastels” for the topping. You can use any variety of “jimmies” for the cupcakes just make sure you don’t use round sprinkles, as the colors will bleed and look muddy.
-If you cannot tolerate the cornstarch in the sprinkles, I would recommend making your own grain-free “jimmies”. A quick google search will lead you to some great recipes.💕
-You can find natural food coloring here.
