red hot cupcakes

Red hot red velvet cupcakes - red velvet cake with a hint of a spicy kick. That kick is crushed Red Hots candies. These cupcakes have a vanilla cream cheese frosting. I got the idea from the Cupcakes Take the Cake blog.

Two thumbs up and a "gawesome" (he said that's good and awesome) from the Connor.

I'm still working on coming up with a story to tell when I get my Food Chain camera. I know I want to involve my kids somehow, because when I bake, they're always there to help, even if it's just putting the cupcake wrappers in the pans for me. I'm now leaning towards a taste test of sorts, maybe buying a fruit they've never eaten before and seeing their reactions. The Connor really liked that idea.
