I can’t wait for you to bite into this dreamy, tender, Gluten-Free Raspberry Lime Mojito Cupcake. The subtle flavors of rum, mint, lime, and raspberries will have you dreaming of vacation.
Have you ever heard of the show Cupcake Wars? It’s on the Food Network, and it’s hosted by Justin Willman (he and his wife are sooo fun).
My friend Brianna (from Flippin Delicious) and I were asked to compete in a cupcake battle hosted by Justin Willman at the Food Everything Conference in May.
Not only did we make an amazing gluten-free raspberry lime mojito cupcake, we also got raving reviews from the judges.
The judging panel was comprised of previous cupcake wars winners, and the audience was made up of the best food bloggers in the world.
Talk about pressure! The competition was fierce and in the end the judges took almost ten minutes to decide who the winner was. That says a lot about the four teams that competed and the wonderful cupcakes we made.
We didn’t end up winning, but we were OK with it. We had a ton of fun and we were proud to represent the Gluten-Free community with our Gluten-Free Raspberry Lime Mojito Cupcakes.
Brianna and I couldn’t test all the amazing looking cupcakes, as we had the only gluten-free cupcake, but they all looked delicious (and the judges devoured every one of them).
We had so much fun working together to come up with our Gluten-Free Raspberry Lime Mojito cupcake recipe.
Both of us wanted to share the recipe with you. I’m posting the cupcake recipe here on Gluten-Free Palate, and Brianna is posting the BEST Gluten-Free Raspberry Lime Mojito Frosting over at Flippin Delicious.
You really need both recipes in order to enjoy the full deliciousness of our cupcake. Don’t worry though, the recipe is crazy easy.
