Red Velvet Cupakes with Cream Cheese Frosting


Voila!~ Okay – So this pic is taken from the first time I made the cupcakes and you can see what I mean about the frosting being very soft?  It’s still very, very yummy though – you can still use the original frosting from the link below  if you just like to dallop your cupcakes 🙂

I prefer the frosting in the pic below – which is also the recipe I have posted


From the most amazing recipe site ever!
All Recipes!!!

Although both cupcake and frosting is from All Recipes – they are from DIFFERENT recipes.  I found that when I used the frosting on ( which is where the cupcakes are from, the frosting was so soft and wouldn’t hold it’s shape?  So I found another one and it was perfect!
