  • For the cake layer:
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour (or another flour) (19g)
  • pinch salt (1/16 tsp)
  • 1/8 tsp baking powder
  • 4 tbsp water (use much less if using a flour other than coconut flour)
  • For the filling:
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp cashew butter (or nut butter of choice)
  • 2 tbsp milk of choice
  • 1/2 packet stevia or 2 tsp powdered sugar (omit for a less-sweet result)
  • optional: sprinkles
  • For the chocolate coating:
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp cocoa powder (25g)
  • 20-30 nunaturals vanilla drops or 2-3 tbsp pure maple syrup or agave
  • 1/4 cup liquid virgin coconut oil (Or omit these first three ingredients and simply melt 1/2 cup chocolate chips instead.) (58g)


Make the chocolate coating by stirring ingredients together. Spoon just a little of the chocolate into the bottoms of cupcake liners, mini cupcake liners, or candy molds. Then freeze 8-10 minutes. Meanwhile, combine all cake ingredients in a small bowl and microwave 2 minutes (or more or less, depending on your microwave’s wattage). With a fork, break cake into tiny crumbs. In a separate bowl, combine filling ingredients and stir well. If your nut butter is from the fridge, you may have to microwave a little so it’ll stir more easily. Take liners out of the freezer and top each with filling, then sprinkle on some cake crumbs. (You won’t use anywhere near all the cake crumbs, but I thought this was easier than giving ingredient amounts of 1/64 tsp!) Cover with the rest of the chocolate, and freeze until solid.

Who’s your favorite Alice in Wonderland character?

Everyone seems to love the Cheshire Cat, but my favorite was always the White Rabbit. I also liked the singing flowers and the horn that looked like a platypus. Actually, I don’t remember much else about the movie; it’s been years since I last saw Alice in Wonderland. Now that the Olympics are over, I might have to force my roommate to watch it with me…

  1. Oh my goodness! I must go make these immediately!!!!!!!!!!! Soooooooo yummy! [And it’s not even my birthday yet (; ]

    On the subject of Alice in Wonderland, I’ve always loved the Mad Hatter, especially when Johnny Depp played him. I thought he did an incredible job.

  2. EVERYTHING is better with sprinkles. Love.

  3. These look delicious! They also remind me I need to jump on the bandwagon and invest in some coconut flour!

  4. Gail Elise says:

    Well, looks like its time to celebrate my un-birthday. These looks amazing.

  5. Oh oh oh my gosh! I want these more than anything right now! I love birthday cake and peanut butter together!

  6. Sarah says:

    I just had my birthday and I’m still celebrating. These may have to be made in the (very) near future!

    This will sound weird but I never liked cartoons. I only watched “The Jetsons” and even that was people based. I didn’t like anything with talking animals. I don’t know why. Maybe they scared me. “Alice in Wonderland” was scary to me. Also, if it wasn’t realistic, I wasn’t interested. I loved shows like “Fifteen”, “Welcome Freshmen”, “You Can’t Do that on Television” and “Saved by the Bell.”

    1. Mary says:

      Happy belated birthday!!!

      1. Sarah says:

        Thanks Mary! That’s so sweet!

  7. Katie Henderson says:

    The walrus that eats the oysters.

    1. I forgot about that story! I loved the walrus too!

  8. Mike says:

    Great. Now I have that song going through my head.

  9. Samantha says:

    Goodness! This looks amazing and low/no baking for the summer heat. This might be fun for me tonight!

    I used to love the singing flowers the song about the walrus and the carpenter.

  10. Tricia says:

    I’m definitely making these today!! I just have to find something to put them in lol since I don’t feel like going to the store for cupcake liners haha.

  11. Cupcake Kat says:

    These look so good. I need to make them ASAP! I love Alice in Wonderland. I enjoy the book and all the film adaptations. My favorite character would have to be the cheshire cat or maybe the mad hatter

  12. Linsey says:

    I found all the characters in Alice in Wonderland incredibly frustrating. It was like she couldn’t get a break and nothing made any sense. As a capricorn, I have a hard time being spontaneous and deviating from the plan and I probably would have gone into complete mental breakdown mode if I found myself in Wonderland.

    That being said…of course I love the Cheshire cat. I married him. 🙂

    Can’t wait to try these!

    1. Too funny… I just noticed your email address :).

  13. Elise Lin says:

    Oh no you made my mouth water and now I have to clean my keyboard!
    My favorite character is the dormouse…

  14. Maria says:

    CCK! can I sub vegetable/canola oil for the coconut oil?

    1. Sorry, I don’t think it’d work 🙁

  15. Sarah the official CCK drooler says:

    are you crazy? I repeat: ARE YOU CRAZY?!?!
    ahh, rhetorical questions. Hello to my boring- when-I don’t-think-life-can’t-get-any-more-boring-but-you always-surprise-me 6th grade english teacher. That is the ONLY thing I remember from your I’d-rather-do-jury-duty class. Also, thank you for teaching me the awkwardness of getting married at 73 when you basically have one foot in the grave. ‘Nuff said.
    How do I always start a comment with one purpose and always get sidetracked?
    Wish I had these bday cake cups in english class.Wait… I do have journalism class… done and done. Back with results soon!

  16. Rachel says:

  17. Faith says:

    These are gorgeous, Katie! Now I have that song from Alice in Wonderland stuck in my head, lol!
