Gluten-Free Red Velvet!

Happy Birthday Kimi!!!!!!
As many of you may know, my sister and I both have celiac disease, an intolerance to gluten or a protein in processed wheat.  While I mostly stay away from eating baked goods altogether (ironically), my sister is still quite fond of partaking in the sweet treats.  For her birthday I made a batch of her favorite -- gluten-free red velvet cupcakes, recipe courtesy of Candace Nelson on the Today Show!

  • 1 1/2 cups of sugar
