This year our family has taken on the challenge of living a gluten-free lifestyle.  While we do try to eat clean as well, there is always the occasional treat!  These cupcakes are a great addition to any party and are moist and sweet.  The cupcake recipe on its own without the icing uses agave- and could be considered among an eat clean diet, gluten-free diet.

Here is the cupcake recipe:

Strawberry Cupcakes

Gluten-Free Vanilla Frosting:
I used the frosting recipe on the back of the Pamela’s Frosting Mix bag.  It says to add 1 bag frosting mix, 2tbsp water and 1 stick of butter.   I tweaked it by adding about 2 tablespoons of milk to it.

Be sure to let the cupcakes really cook because the frosting melts considerably if placed on it too soon.  Enjoy!
