gluten free favorite chocolate cupcake and chocolate glaze!

I use All Purpose Flour mix from Gluten Free Pantry for all of my baking. To make the most divine chocolate cake/cupcakes I use a few different recipes.  One is from the back of the Hershey un-sweetened cocoa box. This recipe makes about 18 regular size cupcakes, 36 mini cupcakes or two 8" round cakes. Top with the richest frosting you are able to find or.....use the glaze recipe below...

I promise, no one will be able to tell these are Gluten free....To make Hostess cupcake copycats make chocolate glaze as directed and allow to set. Use store bought  (gluten free!) white icing and make swirls on top.  Practice on your counter first so you can perfect the technique!
