Cup Cakes for Lidija...Gluten Free Of Course!!!

On Friday night...the night before we were travelling to see Lidija for her First Birthday...I thought I would make a Carrot Cake ~gluten free~ to take up as part of the celebrations...
A couple of weeks ago I bought these Paper Cups for Cup-Cakes, Muffins...Desserts...
and thought why not use them!!!

Pecan Nuts roasting...love the smell of nuts roasting...


Cream Cheese and Honey Frosting...
Add some sprinkles for the celebrations!!!
These really turned out a treat...they were so moist and yummy compared to a larger cake that I had made on another occasion!!!
Just perfect!!!
I have posted the recipe on My Dolce Vita if you want to take a look!!!

Those cakes look delish Dzintra. Lidija is one lucky girl having a great nana to cook treats for her.

Yum.....let me know when you work out how to email them through the computer so that they end up in my lap in real life!!! You would give Julie a run for her money on Masterhef!!! Maybe you should be the next contestant.
