Of the different packaged cake mixes I have used:Gluten Free Pantry, Betty Crocker, Namaste, Bob's Red Mill. Bob's Red Mill Chocolate was better. It sells often for $2.49 US a package at Super Target in my neighborhood.
I tend to make my own cake mix. I started experimenting after seeing recipes for regular cake mix.
This site has a good cake mix recipe and recipes to use it. http://www.netplaces.com/cake-mix-recipes/
It's like making your own box of cake mix. I tried it and it is good.
I love almond meal, but can't have any nuts. I really like the Kinnikinnick chocolate cake mix and the Namaste spice cake. As for premade, the French Meadow chocolate cupcakes were awesome, with no aftertaste!

I like using the Pamela's mixes.
My classic cupcake mix is using 1 cup of a flour blend that is equal parts sorghum, millet, and tapioca, add to that 1 tsp xantham gum and 1/4 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp baking soda. Then add 1/2 cup sugar, 2 egg yolks (reserve the whites), and 1/4 cup melted butter. Mix well. Beat the egg whites until they are quite frothy and then add then to the mix and blend together. These can be adjusted with any flavoring you want: chocolate, chocolate chips, concentrated fruit juice, berries, caramelized bacon etc.

I like Namaste chocolate cake mix. The spice cake also makes a good carrot cake. I have only tried the chocolate BC cake mix and I improved the taste by adding some sour cream to it.

I am not too much of a sweets person but I had Simply Organic brownies and liked it. I know they have other mixes...
Bob's Red Mill has an excellent chocolate cake mix, theres a vanilla too but haven't tried it. I haven't made cupcakes but sure they'd be goo too.
If you want to buy pre-made, Udi's has a few muffins and cupcakes. The chocolate is to die for, best if nuked 10-15 seconds. There's no frosting so you can frost and decorate it with your daughter.
(can you tell I love chocolate)
Elana makes the best cupcakes (and cakes) ever!!! I've tried her recipes and was so thrilled I bought a couple of her books. Most of her recipes don't use grain of any kind. Almond or coconut flour is what she usually uses and her cupcakes are far superior to anything Betty Crocker has EVER made (including the glutinous stuff)
I made a cupcake very similar to her Chocolate Cupcakes (dark, milk and white chocolate chips were also added to the batter). These were the best cupcakes I have ever had. Hands down...

My 4yr old daughter was just diagonsed with Celiac Disease and we are headed to a birthday party in two weeks. Would like to make her some cupcakes to take along so she can enjoy the cake also. I have tried the box mix from Betty Crocker but wasn't thrilled with it. Does anybody have a yummy moist cake mix that I can turn into cupcakes? Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
