Finally…Gluten Free Cupcakes done right!!!!

Very rarely have I had a gluten-free cupcake or cake that has been delicious.  We all know that Ron Ben-Israel is the baker near and dear to my heart and he did finally make a gluten-free cake that was pretty tasty.  Up in New Hampshire, I had one better. (Sorry Ron, but it’s true…)

On Saturday night, my Mom and Dad had a little birthday celebration for me. For me having a birthday cake up in New Hampshire that is gluten-free has always been a bit of an issue, more like never. Until now!!! My mom’s best friend Sandy brought gluten-free cupcakes from Bite Me Kupcakez in Merrimack, New Hampshire.

Celebrating my 40th birthday up in New Hampshire with my family and delicious cupcakes!!!

Debbie Atamanchuk began baking gluten-free after her daughter Rebecca (funny that the both of us are named Rebecca an have gluten problems…) had been diagnosed with a gluten allergy. She didn’t want her daughter to miss out on having her favorites: bread, pasta and especially cupcakes. So she started Bite Me Kupcakesz in May of 2011. Let me tell you something, thank you Debbie. You did something right. Your cupcakes are YUMMY.

Last but not least Chocolate Cupcake with Banana Filling and Peanut Butter Icing.

All right my gluten free friends, I know you want the details on how they taste. Lets start with the cake: the cake was moist and not crumbly and dry. Debbie fills her cupcakes in the center with tasty fillings: lemon curd, orange mouse, chocolate filling and other delightful things. The Icing on the top of the cupcake was not gritty and overly sweet. It was a nice compliment to the fillings inside the cupcake. And fun garnishes! Fresh lemon and orange peals, cherries and chocolate sauce.



Debbie, thank you for taking the time to figure out your recipes for your daughter.  Your gluten-free cupcakes are better than some of the best bakers I know in New York City.  My family and friends all ate your gluten-free cupcakes for my birthday “cake”.  We all agreed – you would never know they were gluten-free.  Congrats on such a wonderful product!  You can bet that we will be ordering from you in the future!!!
