Red Velvet Treat Pops

A few days ago, I found this really good red velvet cake recipe and decided to use it to make treat pops. I had an unopened box containing treat pop containers that i had been planning to use for quite some time. Once the red velvet cake was done,  I crumbled it and placed it at the bottom of the treat pop container. Then using a ziplock bag filled with the yummy cream cheese icing that i had made earlier, I piped a little bit on top of the red velvet cake. Then I again placed a chunk of crumbled cake and topped it off with cream cheese.

The red velvet cake  was extremely soft and moist and and tasted even better with the cream cheese icing. Here is the link to the recipe: http://divascancook.com/2009/11/the-best-red-velvet-cake-recipe-easy-homemade-moist-with-southern-flair.html

Red Velvet Cupcakes

The weekend finally came, so it meant Baking Time! I wanted to make something classic like red velvet cupcakes. So I found a recipe and made 12 red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.  Here is the link to the recipe, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDgGTXZSdCE&feature=c4-overview-vl&list=PL9AD4C02CC2A5B5B3.

The batter turned out more liquidy then I thought, but it still rose and was very tasty. Even my dad, who is vegan, tried a bite and loved it! We gave a few cupcakes to my parent’s friends and they liked it as much as we did.

Below are a few pictures of the cupcakes:
