I recently made cupcakes with Arabella, my little sister, using a yellow gluten-free cake mix from Betty Crocker. We added a pack of raspberry Jell-O which turned the cake batter a bright pink and made it taste really good. Don’t worry, Arabella was not IN the cupcakes. She just helped me make them.
We used Bella’s BabyCakes cupcake maker and decorated with really fancy frosting. I tried to do a basket weave pattern but I think I need more practice.
My favorite cupcake was one I made with chocolate frosting and a carnation on top.
Warning: Eat these right away. Do not eat them stale because the yumminess significantly decreases.
BabyCakes Vs. EasyBake oven
BabyCakes is really easy to make so easy you just pour whatever batter you want into the cupcake shapes and nine minutes later you have perfect cupcakes that are exactly the right size to have whenever you want.
The EasyBake oven not my first choice. It’s fun, but much much harder for my family to figure out how to make them dairy free and gluten free. (If you’re wondering about it, use about 1/4 cup of your favorite cake mix add milk.) It’s also a pain to clean the inside of the oven if you spill something. BabyCakes just take a damp rag and wipe it out. Conclusion BabyCakes overruns EasyBake about 75% of the time.
About Betty Crocker’s gluten-free cake batters work really well making splendid cakes, but if you like licking spoons it’s not the best choice uncooked it’s a little grainy. An excellent choice. To make it dairy free use whatever alternate milk and butter you have and it still turns out grand.
