The Cake Slice- Red Velvet Cupcakes

This months choice for The Cake Slice was Red Velvet Cake. It had a boiled frosting that included pecans and coconut.
I turned this recipe into cupcakes and they were taken to the homeless shelter for dinner, along with the coconut cupcakes I made the same day.
I originally was planning to do the frosting that came with the cake recipe, but as the day progressed, I didn't have enough time.
Then I thought a classic cream cheese frosting would be good, but I had no cream cheese.
So, I ended up making Martha's Fluffy Vanilla Frosting because I had the ingredients and I figured it would be basic enough to taste good with the red velvet cupcakes and the coconut cupcakes.

I saved one of these cupcakes for us to taste, because my daughter begged me too, so I got a little bite of the cupcake. It was delicious!
I am not an expert on Red Velvet Cake. I don't really know what it is supposed to taste like or anything, but this one was amazing. I would definitely make this cake again.

Great job on your challenge and I love the sprinkle topping on the cupcakes. I think this was a great cake altogether.

Very pretty cupcake! I love the idea of baking to bring to a homeless shelter - it never occurred to me to do that but it's a great way to try out new recipes and help others.

Oooh I've been wanting to try Cake Slice Red Velvet as cupcakes. How many cupcakes did you get from the recipe? Kudos to you for donating to homeless shelter. That's an inspiring idea.

Ah, which reminds me, I still haven't made these! I was going to make them over the weekend, and well, yeah, best of intentions and all that! Thanks for the reminder - maybe my boys and I will make these for a project this afternoon.

Bringing the cupcakes to the homeless shelter is such a great idea. I don't know about you, but with all of the baking challenges that I participate in, I often feel like the resulting products go to waste. I don't need to eat one more cupcake or one more cake. But there are plenty of people out there who could use that extra dose of sunshine in their day that a home baked good can impart.

Oooh I thought this cake was awesome too!

And I love that you took your caupcakes to a homeless shelter. I'm sure they appreciated that they were homemade and beautiful!

I made red velvet cupcakes earlier this month! They're fun to make and always appear to be so fancy :)

Love that bottom photo with the frosting and sprinkles. Cupcakes are just so festive and happy! I have been contemplating this book forever, I think I'm going to buy it soon.
