i made these irresistibly cute treats late wednesday night for my cousin’s birthday. i meant to make red velvet cupcakes, but i bought icing instead of food coloring by accident. i resorted to using a simple chocolate cake recipe with homemade vanilla frosting. the frosting was a little sweet for my taste, but who cares when the result is this adorable?
unfortunately these little buggers do not travel well. they came to grand rapids with me & hung out in the car while we ran a few errands. when they arrived at their final destination, they were a little mangled since they had toppled over in their tupperware. oh well, still cute. especially with those pastel-colored, star-tipped candles! happy birthday gabby!
