Happy Valentines Day!


In honor of this (basically non-eventful) day, I made Red Velvet Cupcakes to take to work. For whatever reason, there was no Red Velvet cake mix at the store (I like to bake, but I'm a cake mix kind of girl), so I used plain vanilla, put some cocoa powder in it, and then started to add food coloring. I have to say, it takes a spectacular amount of food coloring to turn that much batter red. Not to mention, that, given the teeny size of my kitchen, there appear to be random spatters of red EVERYWHERE. But, all in the name of dessert (and, as I read somewhere today, desserts is just stressed spelled backwards).
