Day Two: Red Velvet Cupcakes
My original 12 Days of Baking did not include Red Velvet Cupcakes, but I had an abundance of cream cheese frosting leftover from the Coconut Cupcakes.
So Red Velvet it is.
And I totally cheated on this one. I used the Duncan Hines box mix.
But here's a cute idea, which I saw on the Hardink Calligraphy website: Layer cupcakes and frosting in a mason jar. Tie with a ribbon and a spoon for gift-giving.
So that's what I did, only mine didn't look nearly as cute as the ones they were originally modeled after.
So I quickly ditched the mason jar idea, because Brian was making fun of my creations. They were weird and confusing, I must agree. So I'll eat the Cupcakes-In-A-Jar myself, and give the prettier ones away.
I've saved some of my prettiest Red Velvet cupcakes for my good friend Sierra! She and I worked together for years at Mill Creek golf course, and it was there that I made some of the greatest memories of my life. I'm pretty sure I hung out with Sierra everyday for two years straight!
Sierra, thanks for letting me be the "third wheel" on every date that you and Mark ever had. Yall's freindship meant the world to me then, and it still means a lot to me now.
...Top of the Hill, Bottom of Linda's!
