Happy Valentines Day!

To celebrate Valentine's Day the lil guy & I made Red Velvet cupcakes :) It's a fabulous recipe that I got from watching FOOD Network, my drug!

I made these for Halloween, Orange Velvet! I also made them last year for Superbowl when the Colts were playing, Blue Velvet!

1 1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. coco powder

1 c. Buttermilk
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp. white vinagar
1 1/2 c. vegetable oil
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 c. red food coloring, depending on how red you like them.

-Sift all dry ingredients in a large bowl

A 5 yr old's work station!
I decorated the cupcakes w the 5 year old boy I watch. He loved them, ate 3 but shhhh don't tell his mom! He had a blast decorating them and after I got over them looking PERFECT I did too. At one point he mixed the 2 colors of icing, I said "Oh No, B! You mixed the colors. Now there is red in the white!" He replied "It doesn't matter" Ha, and ya know what? It didn't matter! He taught me a lesson! Enjoy these w your sweetie!!!
