Gluten free cupcakes play date

We went to visit our dear friends with a purpose in mind; baking cupcakes. My friend Paula is gluten intolerant and so every time we eat out and have sweets we end up sharing a gluten free dessert. I'm not gluten intolerant but I sure DO enjoy gluten free desserts; they are great! 

Tasty with just enough sweet and very light is how I would describe the gluten free coffee cakes, cookies and other baked goods I've had with Paula. So when she proposed the idea of baking gluten free cupcakes together I was super excited! Next thing I know, Mark Jacinto overheard us and his heart palpitated super fast with a characteristic hapiness that has become his trademark (the kid is a Kropf and throughly enjoys baking cake and eating it too!)

This frosting was delish!

I really enjoyed using an actual spatula instead of my usual whole in a corner ziploc bag trick;)

The cupcakes were delicious you guys, the kids had a lot of fun pouring the ingredients, cracking the eggs, and using the electric mixer. It's funny because even though they were super excited their attention span was short lived. We moms ended up doing the frosting meanwhile the littles were in their own adventure. 

Dominika got tired of waiting for the cupcakes, hehe.

Cecilia is a tour de force.

After we decorated the cupcakes and left them aside, we were distracted in conversation for a minute when little Cecilia took the kitchen stool and decided to climb it and attack the cupcakes. It was hilarious! We couldn't stop laughing, this girl had a craving and went after it, her desire knew no limits! She was completely covered in dark chocolate( picture is after some clean up).

Why is it that little ones enjoy other kids toys so much?

We had a lovely time and feel very thankful for a wonderful playdate. As a mommy, you feel that when your kids smile is as if the entire world smiles back at you.
