Get instant access to this recipe video class and detailed recipe ebook



Are you tired of being left out when desserts are offered? We know how hard it can be to be gluten-free, avoid sugar, or processed ingredients as many of us are these days. We're right there with you, and we have your solution!


Both of us (Kate and Elaina) have been gluten-free for over ten years and have mastered the art of gluten-free and grain-free living. We have come up with some ridiculously guilt-free cupcakes (that fly off the plates at parties and farmer's markets) through our own rigorous training and experimentation.


Would you like to join us for a guilt-free decadent day of baking fun and learn our secrets?


We will show you how to make gluten-free cupcakes that will wow you, and we'll include low-sugar alternatives that adhere to low-glycemic guidelines. These treats will not spike your blood sugar or leave you feeling sluggish after eating them.

Gluten-Free Baking 101

How Gluten-Free Baking Works

Learn core techniques like making gluten-free pastry flour, tips for successful gluten-free baking, gluten-free binders, and common gluten-free baking troubleshooting. Don't worry, we don't use potato starch, corn-meal, garbanzo, or rice flour (or any of the other high carb or toxic gluten replacements). Our recipes don't use agave or refined sugar... but your taste buds won't know the difference!
