Gluten Free Strawberry and Cream Cakes

Yes! It really is dairy free and includes cream! These gorgeous cupcakes are gluten free and dairy free, they have a lovely creamy taste to the sponge and topped with either premade buttercream from Sainsburys or by making your own fresh cream version. But using Elmlea Plant cream you can keep this recipe dairy free however it isn't vegan. Don't need dairy free, simply switch to normal double cream!
