Tomorrow night Mama gets a night off from being a Mama and gets to spend the evening with some amazing ladies. In my time at work I have met some incredibly strong and funny woman that have become very good friends. We are all different yet the same. Even though I spend a lot of time at work with these ladies, I very rarely get to see them in "the real world". So one of them is arranging a "Twilight" night. It should be a blast!
I agreed to bake something to bring, along with the movies. Since I am busy all day tomorrow, I bit the bullet and made the cupcakes today while Con Man and The Boo were in school. While Cam Man was napping I set forth to make "Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Icing".
If you know me well, you know I LOVE TO BAKE. Christmas is an especially awesome time of the year. So I wasn't really worried when I began. I am not sure I will be making this recipe again though. But there are a few things I will do differently if I decide to try again:
- Wear clothing that you would never wear in public. Because Red Food Coloring leaves a nice permanent mark.
- Also remember to turn OFF the electric mixer. Do not turn it UP, as that creates a red MESS all over the place
- You are not Martha Stewart, so do not attempt to ice the cupcakes like her.
