The return of cupcakes!!!


It has been a while since I made cupcakes. It has been a while since I made anything, in fact. I decided that Valentine's Day was an appropriate occasion to return to the world of baking, at least for just a day. I really like making red velvet cake because people have this strange fascination with red velvet cake. Not because of the taste or anything, but purely based on its color. Also, I don't like red velvet cake or cream cheese icing so it is a huge plus that I am basically guaranteed to not eat any of these cupcakes :)

These turned out great and the icing was nice and creamy, almost enough to make a non-cream cheese frosting eater like me consider eating some. Almost...I topped each cupcake with a tiny, frosted heart and sparkly sprinkles as well. I think they looked quite festive.

I've also included a picture of sleepy Joe. Or rather, normal Joe since he is pretty much always sleepy.
