Last weekend my husband and I drove to Escondido to spectate Stage 1 of the Amgen Tour of California. I know cycling isn't a big deal in the United States, but my husband and I are BIG fans.
It was an especially hot day (way over 100 degrees) and these guys rode 100 miles with 20,000 feet of climbing. That's a tough athlete!
Leave it to me to find cupcakes at a professional bike race. My husband got us passes to the VIP booth, which was catered by several food companies, including Deanna's GNI Bakery. (I later found out GNI=Gluten Not Included.) I couldn't help but grab a few mini cupcakes "to test for the blog." I tried a red velvet and chocolate one. There's no way I would have known they were gluten-free. The cake was dense and moist, and the frosting was smooth and surprisingly not melted in the extreme heat. So delicious!
