Valentine's day rose and vanilla cupcake recipe

31 January 2017

This recipe took a while to master and I'm not going to lie there were a few kitchen mishaps. This is a low FODMAP recipe that I created, which is so good if you're gluten intolerant or have IBS. The sweetness of the cupcake really compliments the zingy dairy free buttercream icing, especially with the freeze dried raspberries. I love how the raspberries also look like mini rose petals, which just adds a bit of romance. These cupcakes are easy to make and are gluten and dairy free.
