These cupcakes are delicious just plain, but they’re even better when you frost them with  icing or whipped cream. Or buy a container of Betty Crocker or Pillsbury gluten-free icing and save yourself some time. (Always read the label before buying though, just to be sure it is gluten free.) Add a few drops of food coloring to fit the theme of the party. Makes 1 Dozen.
