Finding Nemo Gluten Free Choc Chip Cupcakes

Gluten Free Finding Nemo Choc Chip Cupcakes

Gluten Free Vanilla Choc Chip Finding Nemo Cupcakes

It was my nephews 4th birthday so I had to make something special for him. His birthday cake was not gluten free so I decided to make some cupcakes for those of us with a gluten intolerance.

He is mad about the ocean and loves the Octonauts so naturally he loves everything about Finding Nemo.

Browsing on eBay I found some Finding Nemo cupcake holders and edible cupcake toppers (made from rice paper and edible ink) perfect! (Unfortunately the toppers were a bit flimsy and as you can see from the photos they curled up but that didn't stop the kids from gobbling them up.)

Then I found a great gluten free vanilla cupcake recipe. I thought it was a bit dull so decided to add choc chips. 

These were more popular with the kids then the cake was. Some of the kids are incredibly fussy eaters. Now that is success!
