Our family's favorite fancy gluten free cupcakes are Kara's Cupcakes. A few weeks after I was diagnosed my friend told me I must go to Kara's and have a treat. I walked into this sheik store front and was looped by the smell of confection churning behind the decorated counter. I eyed the glass dome guarding the select few cupcakes next to a gluten free sign. Not just one flavor but several options! I chose the chocolate. It was deliciously rich, tender with a sweet crumb, and overwhelmingly satisfying.
I thought my pastry days were over but the discovery of Kara's gave me a spring in my step and hope for better tastes to come. I buy a few cupcakes at a time and keep them in the freezer for my daughter to take one when she is invited to a birthday party. The tiny cakes look as special as a piece of birthday cake so she doesn't feel left out.
