When I make cupcakes I prefer to use natural frosting rather than artificial food coloring, though when I do use coloring, I use Select Tea's natural food coloring for non-baked/heated food. In the gluten free Halloween cupcakes pictured, decorations were used for color, which can be used year after year. I've listed several links to different cupcake and cake recipe, along with frosting choices. Enjoy and be creative!

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pasta

This is a kid-friendly, pumpkin sauce. It may appeal to them because it looks similar to macaroni and cheese. However, when they realize that it is not, they'll hit the sweetness of the pumpkin and be just as happy. For a more savory, adult version, see the Tips section. Both are delicious as the roasting process creates a caramelized flavor.

Gluten Free Pumpkin Ma n Cheese

Similar to it's baked cousin, this gluten-free macaroni and cheese recipe contains a bit of both pumpkin and cheese, but is made without egg. The pumpkin provides accents of fall and a bit of sweetness. The leeks or onions are used as a substitute to add sweetness and savoriness. Best of all, the optional bacon makes everything taste even better. No matter how you choose to make this dish, everyone will be begging for more.
