Looking for a fun way to teach children about Veteran's Day and celebrate those who have served our country? Try these Patriotic Gluten Free Cupcakes topped with an American soldier and the American flag! They're easy to decorate and my boys really enjoyed helping in the kitchen, since chocolate and toy soldiers were involved.
Since our family has gluten, yeast and dairy intolerances, we were happy to find Pamela's Dark Chocolate Frosting Mix and Bob's Red Mill Chocolate Cake Mix. We followed the directions and substituted Silk Almond Milk for cow's milk and olive oil for butter, using the same amounts given in the directions. These two mixes yield eighteen delicious cupcakes.
Around the Fourth of July, I stock up on cupcake kits from The Dollar Tree. They are hard to find at other times of the year. The toy soldiers are usually available year round. Just wash them with soapy warm water. Very easy and fun for children to decorate for Veteran's Day programs and it's nice to have a gluten free option for other classmates.
Hope you enjoy making these as much as you do sharing them. No doubt you will greatly enjoy eating them!
A big "Thank you!" to all the men and women who have faithfully served our country!. There is no cupcake that can ever come close to thanking you enough!
