Red Velvet Cupcakes

Today, I baked homemade red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting(also made from scratch by yours truly). They turned out fantastic. I took them to a party this evening, and they were a hit!
 I didn't have time for a photo shoot today but when I bake the rest of the batter up tomorrow I plan to snap some pics and post them here. Next on my list is...a lovely, sweet surprise to be revealed in about a week from now :)

Berry-Cake Splendor

I was going to make red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting before I made anything else...but I found a lovely recipe for strawberry-blueberry buttermilk cake. It turned out a bit messy, and the edges were a bit tough, but the cake itself was moist and lovely, especially with a stroke of whipped cream! Imagine it with the whipped cream-picture taking occurred before it was actually served :)

My first adventure with buttermilk is inspiring me to concoct apple-cinnamon buttermilk cake next! Ah, can't forget red velvet cupcakes though!

Till Next Time,

It's getting late but I wanted to post about today's success in the kitchen: SNICKERDOODLES. Now that I think about it, it's a rather lengthy, though cute name for such a simple cookie.
