Hi, I was wondering if you had the nutrition information for this cupcake or any of your cupcakes. THANKS!

I don't usually track nutrition information.....I should but I don't let myself think about that. I'm sure it would be easy to calculate after looking at ingredients. However, since so many people have various allergies and often make multiple substitutions even to allergy free recipes, any nutrition info that I post would not apply to them. So, I haven't taken the time to figure the nutrition info for any of my recipes. Sorry!
