Hello everyone, as Easter weekend is fast approaching I thought I would share my new recipe for Gluten and Dairy Free Easter Marshmallow Cupcakes. Easter baking can be a bit tricky to make dairy free due to all the chocolate involved. I know there is some great dairy free Easter chocolate out there but this year I thought I would try and bake something Eastery but without chocolate.
It kind of worked out but not quite as I had imagined it! I ordered some Easter themed marshmallows online. The picture showed a cute pink and white Easter bunny. Unfortunately what arrived was more of a yellow colour and a bit like a squashed bunny! So if you are looking at the photos of the cupcakes and wondering why they are Easter themed remember the marshmallows are supposed to be Easter bunnies!
