In other news my wonderful husband took me on a trip to Michael's where I spent a small fortune on baking supplies... I could live in Michael's! I had a ball walking around and filling up my cart with all my baking goodies! I should have taken a picture of all my loot before I opened it all. I have been playing with marzipan and fondant for the last 3 days... pics soon!

Red Velvet Cupcakes
I have been dying to make my own red velvet cupcakes for weeks now. I finally took the plunge and made Martha Stewart's version from her new Cupcakes cook book. These were so delicious! I didn't use the fancy cocoa powder that she used because my local grocery doesn't carry it, so I used what I could find (which was Hershey's) I also couldn't get regular buttermilk, I could only find light! (do they make whole fat buttermilk?) I used well over a teaspoon of red food coloring and I wish I had put more in to make the red a bit brighter. The best part is the cream cheese frosting... OMG I could eat it out of the bowl! I am so happy with these, I will definitely be making them again in the near future.
