It is my Birthday so I decided to make some gluten free, dairy free, and egg free cupcakes for my family. I am allergic to all 3 of those important baking foods. Luckily for me I found Cherrybrook Kitchen Gluten Free Dreams Cake Mix. If you need to bake for someone with food allergies I highly recommend this brand. The mixes are peanut, dairy, egg, and gluten free. My Husband who was raised by a top notch baker gave them a big thumbs up. I have made their brownies as well. You can find the mixes at Whole Foods or Vitamin Cottage.
I purchased the Rockabilly toppers cupcake kit at www.layercakeshop.com A wonderful online baking shop specializing in vintage inspired cake supplies. The kit came with 24 assorted cupcake toppers, 24 baking cups (polka dot, red, and animal print), sprinkles, and icing twist flowers packaged in a cute vintage looking bag. This is an inexpensive and fun gift for a baker in your life. I also purchased the Electric Pink soft gel paste food coloring. I LOVE the coloring. It is thick and easy to use and creates a beautiful rich color. I also bought the Zombie Cupcake Kit and black food coloring for Halloween cupcakes. I didn't purchase their green or red coloring because I had those already, but after using the pink gel color I am definitely going back online and buying those for future baking. What a difference good quality soft gel coloring makes! I can't wait to use the bright green, orange, and black on the Halloween Zombie cupcakes.
The Rockabilly Cupcake Kit is best for making 12 or less cupcakes since it is cutest to load up the cupcakes with multiple toppers. If you plan on making more than 12 cupcakes consider buying the liners and toppers you like in bulk from www.layercakeshop.com instead, it will be cheaper that way. Their prices are good and just by purchasing a bag of vintage inspired toppers you can create an awesome cupcake display for your next party or bake sale.
