These look beautiful and am sure delicious!

Thanks for posting the recipe. I'm going to make a red velvet cake for Christmas this year. It has been ages since I made one and lost my recipe. And good one for this week's photohunt.


Oh Palma, the cookies, meals & cupcakes all look delicious.
The one and only time I had a red velvet cupcake was this summer in London. It was from Harrod's and I couldn't get over the delicious goodies they sell there. And the packaging was also amazing.
Not much baking going on here.Buy a few things from the farmer's market and an old fashioned bakery shop nearby.
Happy Holidays to you and Brad.


Any thing you bake, cook, create, (edible ones) would go fast! The cupcakes look delicious!

This post made me laugh! Very creative take on the theme. I can see how they would disappear so quickly. They look so yummy!!

They wouldn't last long around here! LOL
