These gluten free cupcakes are mixed with fresh blueberries and topped with coconut cream. They’re a healthier, Paleo dessert that is perfect for Summer!
You and I need to have a chat.
Like a “are-we-still-cool-and-can-we-still-be-internet-land-buds-because-this-is-the-second-cupcake-recipe-this-week-and-I-am-breaking-some-sort-of-food-blogger-code” kind of chat.
What can I say other than I’ve got a thang for the small cakes loaded with swirly, fluffy frosting. Not sorry.
Especially because they justsohappen to be the ULTIMATE dessert to bring to baby shower…like today!
Do you know Ashton from Something Swanky? She makes the most RIDICULOUS desserts EVER. I practically have to go to the gym just from PEEPING the screen when I visit her beautiful bloggity blog. But, in the best possible way. The eye-ball ingested calories are always WURTH IT.
Today, a bunch of us are coming together to celebrate that little boy bun in her oven (awkward sentence RIGHT THERE) by throwing her a surprise dessert shower!
Now that you know the reason for cupcakery, we need to have another conversation. The kind that is basically going to change your life because it changed mine ENTIRELY.
I’ve always been one of those people that kind of wishes that the “cake” portion of cupcakes was, like, ¼ of the size and the “frosting” part of the cupcake was, like, 1 billon times the size. This means that I was always that awkward, frowned-upon attendee at parties who ripped the bottom of the cupcake off and, WHOOPS, accidentally dropped it on the floor, which MAGICALLY achieved my perfect cupcake to frosting ratio.
But, I think people got wise and stopped inviting me.
THEN I learned about this awesome life hack where you rip the cupcake bottom off, and then put it ON TOP of the frosting. You know, like a cupcake sandwich.
This allows your tongue to get the optimal ratio of cake and frosting per square inch of bite. It also allows you to go out into the world and be socially accepted.
I bet you didn’t even finish reading this post and you’re out the door to climb on your rooftop, declaring how I just changed your life.
Maybe you should just write a Facebook status about it though. Much safer.
Fresh blueberries that get a little bursty-action in yo’ mouth as your teeth sink through the lighter than AIR coconut whipped cream, and then munch away through the rest of lightly-coconut’d cake <– that right der is what your face likes amIright? I KNOW IT.
I might have stashed these in the refrigerator in PLAIN VIEW (first mistake) which MAY have ended up to me waking up, seeing aforementioned cupcakes and deciding “cupcakes are really just muffins with a frosting hat, and muffins are what elevently billion people on earth eat for breakfast every day, so I’ll just have 1 right now.”
1 may also be code for 6. But, let’s not count the minor details.
Instead, let’s wish for days full of fresh, bright blueberries. And cupcakes.
Made into socially acceptable sandwiches.
Don’t skip that part.
