Gluten is over rated, lol. Well for me it is. Tiramisu is no longer off limits for me, not that I ever really liked it. At my bakery, The Free Cookie, we make this tiramisu cupcake with chocolate, coffee and rum. Yep, rum in a cupcake! It is not a cupcake you eat everyday, or maybe for lunch if you are at work, but it is a nice treat. For a long time it was hard being GF, DF, NF, SF, OF (dairy, nuts, soy, oats), but since we started this bakery thing and it’s become more of a fad eating is not so bad.
It’s fun making lots of “Free” stuff for others like me. Especially since a lot of GF stuff tastes like cardboard. No the rum does not add the flavor to the cupcake or mask a nasty taste but it does add punch to an already great cake.
