baking endeavors

Today I did something I'd been wanting to do for a while...I made red velvet cupcakes, complete with cream cheese frosting. They were delicious, if I do say so myself; though I'm sure my sister and her friend would gladly agree. ;)

I gathered all the ingredients...

And the recipe, of course: {courtesy of Abbey}

And I set to work, measuring and pouring and beating everything until it was just so.

In went the batter and out came the cupcakes, fresh and warm and just right...

Then came the frosting. My frosting abilities leave much to be desired, but I think they turned out alright.

And then, of course, I did what I'd been waiting to do. I devoured my cupcake.

But not before taking plenty of pictures of it. ;)

 So, that, my friends, is the story of my adventures in cupcake baking. It was a lot of work {mostly the cleanup!} but totally worth it. Have you baked anything recently?
