Cupcake picture

Not the best picture, but I never claimed to be a food stylist. I can tell you they taste great, though! :)

Yummy Red Velvet Cake w/ cream cheese frosting!

Ok, I don't have time to type up the recipe and I haven't taken any photos yet. But here's where you can get the recipe for the red velvet cake & cream cheese frosting that I used for my cupcakes yesterday. The only difference is that I portioned the cake batter into 24 cupcakes, and cooked them for 18 minutes. I also halved the frosting since I figured half would be enough for the cupcakes, as opposed to the layer cake. (I was right; I have almost a cup of frosting left over in the fridge.)

The cake is good, but I'm particularly impressed with the frosting. Perfect texture, easy, and it's more reminiscent of a buttercream frosting flavored with cream cheese. I find it to be a perfect blend of sweetness with a light cream cheese flavor. Already I'm thinking of trying this on my favorite banana chip snack cake. (Also an ATK recipe from one of their cookbooks; it's fabulous!)

You'll probably need to create a login account with Cook's Country TV, but it's free and believe me, the ATK crew's recipes are well worth having. Cook's Illustrated/America's Test Kitchen/Cook's Country are my go-to recipes. I've loved them for years. :)

Go here to get the Red Velvet Cake & Cream Cheese Frosting recipe from Cook's Country. (Remember that you may need to create a login to view it, plus the recipes are only free during the current season of Cook's Country. So this recipe may not be available for free, depending on when you're reading this post.)

Not much today

I'm sitting here with a sick kid on my lap. I expect I'll get very little accomplished today unless she takes a nap. I did get some nice red velvet cupcakes made yesterday, so that's something, right? I think ATK has created a recipe for the best cream cheese frosting I've ever tasted. I'll post it if I get a chance.

Yeah, there's a "new" product

I just popped on here & noticed I never added the latest paper set, "Party Elegance" to my Kaboodle feed. So if you look over on the right>>>>>>> and see something you hadn't seen before, keep in mind this is not exactly new but it IS the latest product I have at Digitals. You'll never be able to call me super-speedy, apparently! :)

And again, become a fan at my Seebee's Facebook page to get the latest updates on freebies, my Digitals products, challenge givaways, etc. Go to the Seebee's by Chris Beasley fan page by clicking here. (And yes, I did actually mention when the paper set was released there, so it's definitely a good way to keep up with the Seebee's stuff. ;) )

Testing iPhone blogging

You can pretty much ignore this post. I just wanted to make sure this whole "posting from my phone" thing works. :)
