Red Velvet Cupcakes

I have been wanting to make homemade cupcakes for a while.  One of our dear friends and neighbor had emergency surgery about 2 weeks ago and is home recovering.  So I decided to make some cupcakes for him. I asked my husband what kind he thought I should make and he said Red Velvet {perhaps because those are his favorite}.

Well, they turned out pretty darn good and after making them I understand why.  The icing alone has 1 whole pound of cream cheese and 2 sticks of butter!  You can't go wrong with sugar, butter, and cream cheese.  My cupcake tester {aka Grayson} approved my cupcakes so now I can deliver them to our neighbor.

I am definitely loving the cupcake trend.  Our friend who owns a coffee shop/restaurant that we love to go to, came by and tried one out.  He offered for me to make cupcakes and sell them in his coffee shop!  How awesome would that be?!  I may have a future in cupcakes.  Now that's what I call sweet!


  1. Wow being a cupcakerista (just made up the title) would be the coolest job ever! You have to be one :) too fabulous of an opportunity to pass up!

  2. They look delicious! Would love your recipe :)

  3. You should take him up on that offer! These are gorgeous and I'm sure tasty!

  4. oh my goodness! these are adorable and i can almost smell them through the computer. :) you may have found a little something to do on the side....and the plus side is you enjoy doing it! I wish we lived closer so you could bake the cupcakes for Meme's 1st birthday coming up! I see so many cute ones on blogs. I wish I could do that. And thanks so much for the wishes and prayers. I love blog friends. I have wanted to email you in the past to see what company your husband worked for, but couldn't find an email address. Message me - iblogmoore@gmail.com. Thanks girl!
