With so much love in the air this week I haven’t been able to set up a real photo shoot to save my life, so my apologies for the 10pm iPhone photo. This is real life.
I have never been a fan of red velvet cake…and yes, I am aware that that probably makes me crazy. I’m sure that part of my reluctance to make red velvet anything is the thought of the murder scene that my kitchen will quickly turn into. Red counters, spatulas dripping red, and oh your hands as your trying to rinse off all of the red batter in the sink. *shivers*
Really not a fan…but red velvet cake is one of the hubby’s favorite treats. So this year as an early Valentine’s surprise I whipped up a box of red velvet cupcakes and topped them with a new homemade cream cheese frosting recipe. The frosting was delicious if I do say so myself and the cupcakes disappeared in no time. This cream cheese frosting recipe is definitely a keeper! I may have to try it on a carrot cake for Easter… Hmm…
- 2 (8 oz.) packages of cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- In a bowl, cream together cream cheese and butter until smooth and creamy.
- Mix in the vanilla.
- Slowly stir in the confectioners’ sugar.
- Frost your favorite cake or cupcakes and enjoy!
