    Photo Momma's Note:

    I got this recipe from and wanted to share these wonderful little gems with everyone here! Because they really are a great cupcake, gluten free or not. My GF friend loves them (and so does my picky NON GF husband.) :-) (Note: I was able to find the Betty Crocker GF cake mix at Kroger).

      These cupcakes should be kept in the refrigerator if they aren’t eaten within 12-24 hours due to the cream cheese frosting!

      These cupcakes are Amazing! I didn't make them red, so we just called them velvet cupcakes, and they are like velvet! So moist & delicious. Going to make them again for the second weekend in a row.

      You are a lifesaver! I love this recipe and glutenfreehub is gone. THANK YOU.<br/>Betty Crocker has (or had) both whipped and regular cream cheese frosting that is gluten-free (says so on the can), in case you want to skip making your own.

      Best cup cakes ever! I only used 1 c. Powdered sugar in the frosting, and it was fabulous. If your thinking about making these, do it!
