Gluten-Free Red Velvet Cupcakes with Goat Cheese Icing - Recipes

Red Velvet Cupcakes are a huge favorite in our family and with many of our close friends. There is a local cupcake shop in Seattle that used to absolutely melt our hearts with their red velvet cupcakes, and it has been hard to not be able for the kids to enjoy them. We also used to love these homemade cupcakes and Lordy! This cake was to-die-for!

But I do not accept being Gluten, dairy and egg free lying down! I do not accept that it is an end to all things delicious and wonderful and red velvet!!

So for this past Fathers Day I got to work perfecting a gluten free-vegan cupcake that tastes just as good as the original. While the list of ingredients may be missing some of my old friends (flour, butter, eggs and cream cheese) it is so exciting to me that we can create something so delicious out of all these weird new ingredients!

I have spent the last six months at home re-learning the art of baking, something that was a tremendous passion of mine. Something that came so naturally to me that I felt I could do with my eyes closed or half asleep. Something that I really loved and was worried I would not be able to do again. But I am, it just happens to be gluten free and dairy and egg free. But it also happens to not make me feel terrible and sick when I eat it- so that is a win ☺

In truth, this new variety of baking took much longer to learn and understand, and I am still figuring out more and more with every recipe that I try (9 times over- I am not kidding). And when I have successes it makes the hard work worth it. And they are coming more often as I start to really understand the science and effects behind these new ingredients.

Which leads me back to these red velvet cupcakes that I made for you and your family and friends. Cupcakes that you would be proud to bring to any Fourth of July Party or any family gathering and share with the people you love. They are beautiful. They are festive, and above all- they taste great!
