My son’s class has been reading Charlotte’s Web at school and will be having a fun end of the year celebration with games and Pink Pig Cupcakes. I created these cute pink piggies to bring to the party.
After a bit of searching, I was able to find all the supplies at my local Sprouts grocery store to make these gluten free and dairy free so I couldn’t wait to share these with you!
The supplies needed to create these Gluten Free Pink Pig Cupcakes are:
- 2 Dozen “Best Gluten Free Chocolate Cupcakes” recipe-I used light brown liners so it looks like the piggies are playing in the mud
- 1 recipe of vanilla frosting (I used a shortcut today and found this great organic vegan frosting)
- fresh raspberries to turn the frosting pink
- Glutino gluten free lemon wafer cookies
- Gluten Free Marshmallows
- gluten free & dairy free mini chocolate chips, I use these or these
This time, I made my own gluten free, dairy free and nut free chocolate cupcakes! They are so moist and light with just the right amount of sweetness!
To move things along quickly, I set up all my ingredients in little bowls.
I made the frosting naturally pink by pressing fresh raspberries through a sieve. Then, I added the puree a teaspoon at a time until I achieved the color I desired. I went for a light pastel pink, what a pretty color!
Next, I cut the marshmallows in half and the wafers into triangles. You can see all the items I used below.
Easy Step by Step Tutorial for Making Gluten Free Pink Pig Cupcakes:
- Frosting a thin layer of pink frosting onto your chocolate cupcake.
- Place the marshmallow in the lower half of the cupcake.
- Dip the flat part of a chocolate chip into the white frosting and stick onto the nose to create 2 nostrils.
- Press 2 chocolate chips above the nostril to form two eyes.
- Place the wafer triangles on the sides of the eyes to form the ears.
That is it! You have now created the most adorable Gluten Free Pink Pig Cupcakes!
My daughter actually helped me with these and we had a blast making them! I actually made these two years ago for her party too!
One of her favorite memories of the end of the year Charlotte’s Web Party were the carnival games.
Her favorite game was sticking her face into a plate of whipped cream to hunt for bubble gum and then blowing a bubble. What fun!
