    Disclaimer: In fairness, I made a significant modification because bulk arrowroot flour is hard to come by locally, so I substituted King Arthur multi-purpose GF flour (brown rice flour, tapioca starch, and potato starch).

    Had high hopes for these as I made them for my daughter’s 1st birthday. They tasted and looked (identical to the picture) very good but had a very hard “shell” and were on the dry side. I’m guessing this was likely due to the mod mentioned above.

      Yes, it was due to your modifications. We have other great cupcake recipes on this site, and our donut recipe also can be made into cupcakes, but if you cannot have almond flour then it wont work for you. We do have cupcake recipes using coconut flour though. I’m sorry these didn’t turn out for you, but subbing a gluten free flour blend one for one on this recipe is not advised.
