Red Velvet Cupcakes


Oh Red Velvet, how I love thee.  Seriously, I do.  Red Velvet cake, in cake form or cupcake form, is probably my favorite cake of all times.  Oh sure, I adore Chocolate cake and Carrot cake and Lemon cake but Red Velvet Cake is not only delicious,  it sparks a wee bit of magical, childlike delight, deep in my soul. I think it's probably because it's like a present.  You see a cake and your brain registers, "YUM"!  Then it's cut open and you see that magnificent, rich, red color, and the little kid in you says, " Oh my gosh! I can't believe it!  Wow!!!!"  And then you are forever hooked on the magic that is, and can only be, Red Velvet Cake!!!!  Do ya feel me out there?  Oh, I think I can almost see you guys nodding your heads with me and I think I might have heard someone shout out an Amen!  Okay, so I guess, Red Velvet Cake might make me get a little carried away with myself.   I tell you it's the magic of the dang cake.
This recipe is at my new site. Hope to see you there :) I've posted a lot of new things.

SURPRISE!!!  And the spell is cast.

    before the fashionable ladies as ever.

    in the morning, then we urge you to try it at least for one week.

    if not a balanced representation, then at least an interesting angle to a well known personality.

    the movies related to them were released at the same time.
