Red Velvet Cupcakes!!!

Yes, I am a runner who LOVES to bake! I think that the 2 different activities cancel each other out, calorie-wise. This week's experiment was red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting...yummo!!! My mini-baker helped me to bake the cupcakes in the afternoon and then I made the frosting after the kiddies went to bed. It took every last bit of willpower that I had to not like the bowl clean (although I did lick the beater :) ) Here is the finished product:

I was very happy with the final cupcake...a moist cake and creamy, but not too sweet, frosting. These got a big seal of approval from the kids, who both eat from the frosting down.
