Gluten Free Vanilla Birthday Cupcakes

We’ve all had epic fails in the kitchen.  Most of us usually do not photograph the evidence for all to see.  But a friend of mine was brave enough to do just that.  As we sat talking about gluten free baking, she detailed the trouble that she was having making a tasty gluten free cupcake.  She described her attempts as flat, dense, and sunken.  She even showed me a photo.
