Red Velvet Birthday

I've been loving the idea of red velvet lately. So, for my nephew's birthday party, I decided that red velvet (in place of vanilla or chocolate) would be a nice little treat. You can't really get red velvet in Thunder Bay either: Operation, make them fall in love!

The cupcakes, like the ice-cream cones, had to travel with me, and I just decorated them when I got in, but they were moist and good! OH MY! I decorated them with little candy hearts and they were so cute. Place them on a tower.. YAY!~ I didn't do a wonderful spread like those moms you see here on the blogs, but I did think it looked swank!

Abby had about 4 cupcakes that day.... she, as I said before, LOVES cupcakes!

Those turned out so cute & I just love the ice cream cones! What tip did you use to get the icing to pipe like that?

Thanks Kate!

I used a Wilton 1A round piping tip. It is large and in charge as far as smooth, round icing on a cuppie!

I love how these look. Sometimes simple looks best, and those little red hearts are the perfect topper. I can tell the birthday kiddo loved them!!
