red velvet love

Since Vday was on Sunday I was feeling the love for the Primary kids and wanted to bring cupcakes (I am the Primary Secretary), so my kitchen was a bakery on Saturday before. I have been loving the red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting from Canvas Cafe here in Marietta and wanted to make a version of those. Here's how they turned out!
I used the red velvet cupcake recipe from the well known Magnolia Bakery in NYC found at epicurious.com and the cream cheese frosting from the also famous Sprinkles Cupcakes in LA found here.
I added clear sugar sprinkles to the top and used Wilton's Candy melts in red to create the hearts on top. I just piped the melted candy using a baggie onto wax paper.
And I must say these were delicous. I had one a day for a few days (had to keep a few for myself).
The ones I brought to primary I packaged up like this. I hope everyone enjoyed them as much as me.
