Gluten Free Vegan Espresso Cupcakes with Espresso Frosting

Gluten Free Vegan Espresso Cupcakes with Espresso Frosting

Recipe by Gluten Free Baking By Rachelle (Rachelle Himmelman)

I LOVE anything coffee and thought why not cupcakes, seems simple enough, right?
It is simple alright and delicious, I mean so delicious that you can't just stop at one.  I
had someone ask me yesterday what I did with all the goodies that I make, I mean besides
having a family that eats EVERYTHING there is generally no leftovers at all.  There is
a rare occasion that I may sneak in one, two, maybe even three for myself, after all I really
like to indulge sometimes.  Enjoy~
