These look soooo good!!! I love red velvet cake/cupcakes and I just started going gluten free can't wait to try these. Although it might not be soon. Thx for sharing!
I did not care for this recipe. The cupcakes looked great, but both the cupcakes and the frosting had a terrible aftertaste and neither was sweet enough. I see there are other variations with real vanilla, honey or agave and also dairy products, like whipped cream -- those modifications might be a lot better. I think the combination of erythritol, stevia and melt substitute was just too much substituting...
Finally! A gluten free sugar free cupcake recipe that's quick and easy. I couldn't find erythritol at the store anywhere. I have xylitol at home and knowing that xylitol is much sweeter than erythritol, I used 3/4 cup instead of 1 cup. I wish I would have did half instead because it was just a little too sweet. Also, the xylitol is a little grainy. I'm not sure if they make powder, oh well - not the recipe's fault. I also couldn't find sugar free food coloring so I just skipped it. I will be making these again!
