Mini Red Velvet Cupcakes!
Red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting are such a classic and elegant combo. My favorite color is red and I love the flavors of light chocolate and sweet cream cheese, so it's always fun to whip these up. The special occasion this time was that it was one of my new co-workers birthday, a very sweet girl. Her favorite color is purple so I dyed the frosting and topped with white pearl sprinkles. I used a recipe from Annie's Eats, and made two variations: I added espresso powder and substituted butter for vegetable oil, to make the cupcakes more rich. They were a big hit in the office! I always think the best form of praise is when someone is telling you how much they like your cupcake with their mouth full ;) Such a compliment!
