Gluten-Free Birthday Cupcake Tower!!

It's Sister Chef's Birthday!
But her party isn't until this weekend.
Which bothered Little Chef...."She has to have a cake TODAY! Not later, it's not her birthday later, it's her birthday TODAY!"
We tried to tell him that Sister Chef was going to have a lovely cheesecake and fancy appetizers at her party in a few days and didn't mind that she was not getting a cake today.
We reminded him that we had put a candle in her pancakes and let her open one gift.
But no...."Birthdays need cakes so I going to make her one! When she get home from school there WILL BE CAKE!"

So momma chef gave in and said they could use the new cupcake stand she had found at a thrift store, for one dollar!

She quickly regretted that decision because the stand took forever to assemble together...Daddy Chef usually does all things that require parts and instructions. She finally got it though!

We used our Chocolate Chip Banana Cake recipe because Little Chef loves mashing bananas.

Putting liners in the muffin tin is fun too!

While the cupcakes were in the oven Little Chef learned all about patterns.

Once they were done they looked so yummy!

We usually eat theses plain, like a muffin.

But of course birthdays require frosting! (melted dark chocolate chips)
And natural sprinkles too! 

Then we put them on the cupcake stand and it was perfect, they just screamed "Birthday!"

And Little Chef was happy.
And Sister Chef loved the surprise from her best bud.


Who says a gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, corn-free birthday has to be boring? 
Not us! 

And there were tons left over so we put those in the freezer so we can have our gluten-free cupcake tower at the party too!

Happy Birthday Sister Chef!
