Red Velvet Cuppycakes

I made some red velvet cuppycakes from scratch yesterday. I have been wanting to make them for a while now....and since my friend Alaina and her husband were coming back in town, I thought I'd make some up for them!

I used Paula Deen's recipe from food network for my first go round.

They were really yummy...and even though I only had 1 ounce of red food coloring when it called for 2 ounces, it still tasted fabulous...maybe they weren't as RED as they shoudl have been, in fact they were almost a deep hot pink instead. But if that's the only downfall to this trial...so be it! I think these cuppycakes rocked! They rocked SO MUCH, that i had to send them to work with my husband today so that I wouldn't eat them all up!
I did send some home with Alaina when she stopped by last night on her way home from the airport to pick up her little Chaquita...who I picked up from the airport earlier since she came in on an earlier flight! My kids were so excited she was staying at out house for a few hours. They love her to death.
Here she is resting on the cushion of our couch... poor little thing was jetlagged! Ha Ha!
