These Valentines’s Champagne Cupcakes with Strawberry Frosting are delicious and perfect for Valentine’s day.
Valentine’s Day is a good excuse for chocolates, champagne, and all sorts of fancy treats. That’s not always the best thing if you’re still trying to eat healthily after Christmas!
These Champagne Cupcakes with Strawberry Frosting are nice and light though, and they can be made from any sparkling wine you like. It’s a great excuse to have a bottle of champagne (or prosecco) with your Valentine’s meal, then serve these as a delicious dessert.
When you’re baking with gluten free flour, you must remember to add xantham gum. It works to replace the elasticity that gluten provides to the flour and allow mixes to expand and rise – that’s why so many gluten free breads and cakes end up like biscuits. It’s a good idea to mix the xantham gum and flour first while dry, to make sure it’s well distributed through the mix.
