In addition to her lovely bakery, Kyra has a line of cupcake mixes that will knock your socks off! Make cupcakes like a pro without all the fuss using these easy to follow mixes. The thing I loved most about them was that they were made from real ingredients. I didn’t have to guess what something was listed on the back. That is what Kyra believes in, using real ingredients to make really tasty food.

Recently, Kyra released her first cookbook, Sweet Cravings: 50 Seductive Desserts for a Gluten-Free Lifestyle and boy was it great! It was filled to the brim with mouthwatering desserts that would make even the most timid of bakers excited to get in the kitchen and give gluten-free baking a try. The photos couldn’t be more beautiful (don’t be surprised if you want to lick a page or two ;)) and the recipes are both inventive and exciting. My friend Erin’s birthday was coming up so I decided to wow my friends with Kyra’s Champagne Cupcakes from the book. I have always been a fan of the idea of strawberries and champagne since I was a teenager and loved Victoria Secrets signature blend lotion so I decided to tweak the recipe just a bit to add the touch of fruit. Now, I am NOT a baker (I absolutely love to cook) so this was a big deal for me to make a baked good from scratch (I’m a mix kind of girl). Of course, this recipe was also a more advanced one but I was determined. I was very surprised to find that I didn’t feel overwhelmed by the recipe at all! It was easy to follow and smelled delicious which kept me baking happily. I don’t drink so I found a non-alcoholic Brut that went very well with this recipe. Once everything was mixed, I took a little taste just to make sure all was ok. I kid you not, I grabbed a spoon and ate an entire spoonful of raw batter right then and there after that first lick because it was THAT good! Once baked, (with a little help from my awesome baker friend Brigette) we piped some delicious non-alcoholic champagne frosting on top and served with a fresh strawberry and some gold disco dust. They looked amazing and I attribute it all to Kyra’s rockin’ book!! My friends were ooing and ahhing when they bit into each cupcake. They said, “These are gluten-free?!” and “They are SO moist!”. I was so proud to show my friends just how fabulous gluten-free can be. Thanks Kyra!! :)

  2. Diana Cote says:

    I would love to win because I have recently gone Gluten free, my toddler included and I like to indulge now and again and it’s really hard to find good gluten free treats to buy and even recipes to bake, so this would help us carry on being able to indulge in yummy treats and continue with our gluten free lifestyle. :) Thank you for the giveaway!

  3. Sharalyn Anderson says:

    I would love to win this because both my husband and I are always hosting events at our house and It’s rare that I get to enjoy a sweet treat with everybody, mainly because it’s usually not gluten free. So winning this giveaway would allow me to stock up on some treats that I could enjoy right along with everyone else & even make some fun new g.f. ones.

  4. Dana Coughlin says:
