Hello everyone, welcome to my fun new recipe for Gluten and Dairy Free Strawberry Milkshake Cupcakes. I made these cupcakes for the family on Easter Sunday which was also my mum’s birthday. She isn’t a big fan of chocolate cake so I decided to go with something fruity instead. I’ve used real strawberry puree to flavour (and colour) the frosting and paper straws to decorate.

I’ve had this cupcake idea in the back of my notepad for about two years and it feels good to finally get it published. There are a few other good ideas in there I need to take the time to turn into proper recipes.
