Namaste Foods: Chocolate Cake Cupcakes & My First Giveaway!

I have made my fair share of gluten free cakes, so I would have to say that it takes a lot to impress me. Namaste Foods has a Chocolate Cake Mix that calls out to the chocoholic in all of us. Plus, if you glance at the label, it is a safe bet that it fits your dietary needs because of all of the allergens it is not using in its products. I know a lot of people that are not only Celiac but are also allergic to soy or corn and this product is safe and delicious for them to consume.

The cake mix itself is very easy to make. I made cupcakes...of course...with homemade lemon frosting.
The mix made a ton, about 30 of them! I was in cupcake heaven. I didn't expect to be wowed though, like I said, I have made a lot of cakes in my day. But, I was WRONG. This gluten free cake did not even taste gluten free. I easily was able to pick it up with out the cupcake crumbling in my hands. The taste was airy and moist. I took some of the cupcakes to my Boyfriend's house to serve and didn't tell anyone they were gluten free and no one even knew. That is how amazing these are!

My favorite gluten free food to eat...hmmm that's a tough one! Right now I like to make spaghetti with Tinkyada's white rice pasta. It's delish! And I wanna try that chocolate cake mix or cookie mix!

Oh I forgot, one of my favorite foods to make is mini muffins, brownies, etc. They make perfect snacks. I would like to try the biscuit mix.

I want to try the cookie or pie crust mixes, these are the two baked goods I have found most frustrating to mix up on my own. And I've bought several mixes that were complete flops, like inedible, toss in the compost flops!

My favorite gluten free food right now is summer pasta salads (Tinkyada spirals, shells, or elbows all work), a canned fish or chicken, veganaise (no eggs here), dijon, lemon, honey, onion powder and mixed raw veggies. Yum!

My favorite gluten free goodie to make is, of course, cupcakes!!! Or, if I'm too lazy to frost all the cupcakes, I just make cake! Mmmm..I love it! I wouldn't mind trying the Namaste pancake mix!
