Well, after running errands in a complete downpour, working my day job and dealing with a cranky 10 month old since 6 a.m., I somehow managed to find the energy to create some baked goods today. I made these as a gift for a few friends who just had a baby boy last week. They are Cupcake Bites that I adapted from a recipe over at Bakerella. Mine definitely didn't come out as pretty as the expert Bakerella's, but I think I made a pretty good effort. After some practice, I think I could really perfect the process.
The new parents have a love affair with Red Velvet cake, so of course I chose this flavor for the cake center.
