Gluten and Dairy Free Lemon Cupcakes with Raspberry Frosting

Hello everyone

I’m super excited this week – as you can imagine from this website, I love reading about and looking at food pictures.  One of my favourites sites to sit and browse at the latest food photographs and recipes is foodgawker and I’m very proud to say that some of my photos and recipes now are featured on the site.  You can check them (and loads of other amazing recipes) here:  https://foodgawker.com/post/archive/fiona-kennedy/

Back to today’s recipe, when I asked my lovely followers on FaceBook what three recipes they wanted to see featured on the site this week these cupcakes were a clear winner.  I’ve struggled in the past to make a raspberry frosting that got the full raspberry flavour without being too wet from the juicy fruit.  I’ve actually made this frosting with a high fruit content raspberry jam – this gives the frosting the right flavour, the perfect colour and a pipeable (that’s a word right?) consistency.

My favourite thing about these cupcakes though have to be the sprinkles, they are tiny white, pink and purple unicorns .  You can’t really see it properly in the photo below but I do have Willy Wonka wallpaper in the kitchen.

Enjoy!
