Kids Birthday party Gluten Free Cake

Anyone who has kids that are gluten free know that birthday parties can be a little difficult if you don’t bring your own stuff. It is usually pizza and cake. I use to bring a cookie or muffin or something that I had made for my daughter to have while the other kids had cake. Recently she started to ask me to make her a cake so she can have icing and sprinkles too! I never want her to feel left out and although I don’t believe in eating a ton of sweets, I don’t want her to feel like she can’t participate. Now I had to decide what to do! Do I bake an entire cake and cut a slice for the party?? Then I looked in my freezer and I had Joan's Double Chocolate Muffins so I went to work and here is what I came up with! Kids are happy and I’m happy because it didn't take a lot of work!



Directions
Cut muffin in half (do this while still slightly frozen). Then cut in half again and ice in between layers and on top. See below for icing recipe! Then top with sprinkles! Store in the refrigerator until ready to go.

Icing recipe
1/4 cup earth balance spread room temperature
1 1/2 cups powdered cane sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tbls rice milk

Blend with hand blender in a small bowl. If it doesn't seem firm enough add more sugar a few tablespoons at a time until it is firm. This will make more than you need so you can either cut in half or store the rest in the refrigerator for up to a week.
