It's only appropriate for Red Velvet Momma's first loves, loves, loves post to be Duncan Hines Red Velvet Cake Mix!
Sometimes you have a Red Velvet emergency, or a hankering; and you need some tasty cupcakes FAST. I know these things happen to me. You can't buy this in Canada, so when we head to the States, I stock up.
I don't use cake mixes very often, my chocolate cake recipe is scrumptious, if I do say so myself. But I do use this one. I don't use canned frosting, I always have cream cheese in the fridge, and icing sugar kicking around; so it's easy to whip up some icing (frosting? I'm not sure which name I like better).
There will be a tutorial soon, my birthday's coming up, and I want these for my dessert!
