They love to watch the Food Network and Cupcake Wars is a favorite. So they took on this baking challenge with that show in mind, throwing this and that in and of course decorating like a professional.
They made chocolate cupcakes using the Chocolate Almond Torte Cake recipe from Anne Byrn's book The Cake Mix Doctor Bakes Gluten-Free. They just made the cake part of the recipe. They used Tofutti's Better Than Sour Cream in place of regular to make these dairy free. Then they topped them with a coconut frosting which I will include later. Yummy!
WHITE CHOCOLATE COCONUT FROSTING:
1/2 Cup butter softened (we used Earth Balance)
1 cup powdered sugar
2 T soy milk
1/4 cup white chocolate chips
1 1/3 cup sweetened flaked coconut
Cream butter, powdered sugar, milk on low with an electric mixer until well blended. Increase speed to medium and blend another 30 seconds until smooth. Blend in melted chocolate. Stir in coconut.
