Pink. Pink. Pink! Pink, Pinkalicious cupcakes, could not be achieved with beet juice or raspberry juice. After my gluten free cake batter turned grey after adding them I had to get McCormick food dye. The neon pack. (What I did find after I made these was All-Natural Maraschino Cherries made by Tillen Farms. They are gluten free and colored by radishes and black carrots.) I wanted them to be similar enough to the illustrations After months of my daughter requesting pink cupcakes that I had planned on making these for her next birthday. When her birthday was approaching she still wanted pink cupcakes like the ones drawn by Victoria Kann. And she was happy!
