Valentine’s Day Part Deux: Red Velvet Cupcakes

037

I couldn’t get away with doing only one Valentine’s Day recipe! I decided to make cupcakes. And, as Red Velvet is the favorite for V-Day, I went with a Martha recipe, Red Velvet Chocolate Cake.

I lined my cupcake pan with some cute heart paper liners.

I then made the colorful cake batter in my KitchenAid.

Then I filled the cupcake tin. Unfortunately, I filled them rather high and didn’t have enough batter for all 12.

They looked beautiful when I took them out!

Next, it was time to make the Sturdy Whipped Cream frosting that I had been wanting to try for quite some time.

It was so incredibly tasty. The almond extract really gives it a nice flavor. I used a closed star tip to decorate my cupcakes. The looked so beautiful, and tasted amazing!
