This basket has red velvet and chocolate cupcakes. The toppers on the chocolate cupcakes were made using the Russian piping tips I purchased from Amazon after seeing them on Pinterest and YouTube. The hardest part is getting the frosting to the right consistency. Once that is achieved, the piping isn’t hard at all. I am still working to mastering the different types of flowers.
If you like nuts and Red velvet cake then you will enjoy the taste of these moist red velvet cupcakes. The added red sprinkles give a nice balance of sweetness to the cream cheese frosting and salt from the pecans.
I had the pleasure of decorating strawberry and red velvet cupcakes for a high school graduation party. Trying to keep the school colors with pink colored strawberry cupcakes was a challenge but the end results look nice. I used blue cupcake liners to bake the cupcakes. After frosting them , I used blue and yellow food color spray on the cupcakes then topped them with the school logo picks I made using address labels and toothpicks.
These cute treats are made with red velvet cake. I had watched a video on YouTube that used Mini Oreos for the ears but my cake was too moist so the balls kept falling apart. I decided to try the candy wafers and these worked well.
A smash cake is the highlight of any toddler’s birthday party and I was happy to make this one. It is made with red velvet cake and cream cheese frosting. Since it is for a toddler, I reduced the amount of cream cheese in the frosting. The Baby Mickey edible image was ordered a couple days in advance. I trimmed the image, applied it to the cake and then piped a blue border on to the cake.
