My kiddos saw pink lemonade cupcakes at the store and begged me to make some gluten free.  So I whipped out my magic wand and a very delicious moist cupcake appeared!”

Chef Notes:

*The longer you beat the frosting, the fluffier it gets.

*I like to use turbinado sugar in my baking, it helps to make a more moist cupcake.

*Use all natural food coloring without the bad colors.  You can find ones made out of natural vegetable juices.  Or make your own by cooking down and concentrating juice from a vegetable.  Beets make a great pink food coloring.
