Happy Red Velvet Valentine’s Day

For two weeks, I’ve held off on using the ingredients to make red velvet cupcakes so I could serve them for Valentine’s week. Well! Sickness took over once again (What is it with this terrible season?!), and I could hardly get out of bed until maybe last night. Well at that point, I HAD to make the cupcakes because I promised a dessert for today’s church function. If it weren’t for my fantastic husband who purchased all the crazy ingredients, including a whole lot of red dye and these gorgeous flowers, and my deeply inspired doctor and bff, I would not have had enough energy to make them. I used natural sugar instead of refined, so the frosting is not pristine white, but it’s still Magnolia’s recipe…mostly. p.s. Who knows what they taste like? Not me! I’m too congested to savor any flavors…and since flavor is such an essential part of eating for me, I have no appetite. “I’m just one stomach flu away from my goal weight. ” — Emily, The Devil Wears Prada
