Swirlz Gluten Free Cupcakes in Chicago
A half dozen delicious gluten free cupcakes from Swirlz were waiting when we arrived at our hotel in Chicago in a box that said "cupcakes make people happy". My husband constantly outdoes himself--I don't know he does it, really. (Thanks david!) They are the best gluten free cupcakes I have ever tasted. Actually, they are the best CUPCAKES I have ever tasted. My daughter doesn't even eat cupcakes and she thought they were the "best-best cupcakes". Plus, they are super cute with two tiered swirls of frosting. The airy, creamy frosting makes me think that I need to rethink my too sweet frosting recipe. It is actually incredibly inspiring to find such a perfect cupcake! Swirlz frosting is super creamy and not too sweet and the cake is light and moist. We tried vanilla and red velvet and double chocolate. "I liked the vanilla the best" voted my eight year old. I didn't have a favorite--they all were out of this world.
