Twinkle Sprinkle Cupcakes #HappyBirthday EJ!

It's my son EJ's 9th birthday today so I baked some gluten free Twinkle Sprinkle Cupcakes with Pistachio Cream.  I am not a baker so I rely on  box mixes when I have to bake .  Luckily,  Glutino  has a complete pantry of  baking goodness.  You can find the recipe below.
  • 1 box of Glutino Twinkle Sprinkle Cake
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • a packet of red and green sprinkle
  • 1 tbsp  pistachio cream (optional)
I used my silicon cupcake molds but I only  have 8 of them so I have to bake twice. I have to get me another set of these.

  • Preheat oven to 350 F
  • IN a large bow or mixer beat butter until fluffy.
  • Add eggs, vanilla, and milk  and continue to blend.
  • Add dry mix, continue mixing.
  • Add 1/2 of the green and red flakes to batter and continue to mix
  • Using a pre-greased  cupcake or muffin pan, scoop batter into pan.
  • Sprinkle 1/4 on the top of  scooped  cupcakes that are ready to be baked
  • Baked for 26 minutes.

You can put frosting or icing when the cupcakes are cooled down.  I prefer  cupcakes with no icing, it's too much sugar for the kids!
My son would be happy when he comes home, he would have something to snack.  We also got him an ice cream cake from Dairy Queen because he  requested for it.  Whatever will be left for these cupcakes, we will take it tomorrow on our road trip.  We are taking them to Kalahari for his birthday.

Those look a whole lot better than the gluten-free cupcakes I have done in the past! A friend of mine can only eat gluten-free stuff I'm going to have to surprise her and make these they look delicious.

These sound so yummy especially with pistachio cream! I hope your son has a great birthday. I might have to try out this recipe for my own son.

Well, are these just lovely?! We are always looking for gluten free recipes in our house since my niece has sever gluten allergies. These are cute and not the same old same old boring cupcakes! There's a fancy cupcake shop in town that sells things exactly like this for almost $4 for a tiny little cupcake. These seriously look delicious!

Those look so cute and fun. And I love the cupcake wrappers too. I just made some banana chocolate chip ones today, and I used parchment paper wrappers which are easy to peel off as well.

I am usually a girl who loves her cupcakes with icing but your look god without it. Save all that sugar because I want my 21 year old belly back!

Happy Birthday to EJ. These cupcakes look and sound delicious. I will have to look for the Glutino Twinkle Sprinkle Cake mix. My son went gluten free a year ago and I have been baking him treats which I find are better tasting than non gluten free baked goods.
