Gluten Free Vegan Strawberry Lemon Shortcake Cupcakes






Gluten Free Vegan Strawberry Shortcake Cupcakes

Goodness I have not baked since Christmas, I had two sick kids for about two months which took 
a toll on the family.  I've missed my usual baking and now I'm back with these Gluten Free Vegan Strawberry Lemon Shortcake Cupcakes. I love anything strawberry and lemon so why not a combo, so yummy! I hope you enjoy them as much as we did.
