Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting
Okay, maybe it is too soon after Thanksgiving to showcase photos of food…but I say that anytime is a good time for a cupcake. This year for Heather’s birthday, I decided to make one of her favorite cakes in cupcake form, and she wasn’t all that thrilled at first…to be honest, I haven’t done much baking, so I could understand the hesitation. I followed a couple recipes (but mostly this one from SimplyRecipes.com) and in the end, produced a couple dozen red velvet cupcakes with swirls of cream cheese frosting. The color was a nice dark red, and according to multiple people, they tasted great! Maybe they were just being nice…but I thought they were quite delicious!
