Here were some requirements that I had:
1. Must be gluten free. (Thank you Betty Crocker gluten free cake mix)
2. Must be milk free. (Thank you Earth balance soy butter)
3. Must be delicious. (In my opinion, the chocolate gluten free cake mix not only tastes better, but has a better texture, more comparable to cupcakes made with wheat flour).
4. Must be lovely. I found inspiration on Pinterest:
I love this idea! How lovely! How creative!
So, with ideas swirling in my brain, off to the supermarket I went. The first thing I saw when I walked into Super Target was beautiful, fresh strawberries! The idea formed instantly. Chocolate cupcakes with strawberry flavored icing, garnished with a strawberry.
And this is how they turned out! Lovely, delicious, gluten free, milk free, but definitely not guilt free! They were a huge hit!
