Red Velvet Cake 3 Ways

Welcome to my Valentine blowout, spectacular!I decided to only make 1 cake mix, but use it in several different baking pans.

First I made Red Velvet Cake Baked Donuts and covered them with a glaze of hot pink and decorated them with conversation hearts.

Then I made mini Red Velvet Bundt Cakes.  I found this cute little Bundt mold at Target while searching fruitlessly for heart-shaped red hots.  I never did locate those in this wonderful grocery(less) town.  Why can’t we have HEB or Trader Joe’s?  I dusted these with a little powdered sugar.  I would have decorated them with heart-shaped red hots if I could have ever found any.

Of course, I had to make mini Red Velvet Cupcakes with cream cheese icing roses.  What?  Had I lost my mind?  It took two hours to make 12 little roses.  Why you ask?  You see it is such a runny frosting (even with Wilton meringue powder)  it had to be refrigerated after each step of making the rose to hold its shape.  As I type they are in the refrigerator.  I doubt they will ever make it to work with any resemblance to a rose.  This was not a good idea.  I will NOT try this one again.  Talk about frustrating.  It just sounded like a good idea (in a nightmare sometime). At least it is a good cake.

    Okay, I know Valentine’s Day was yesterday, but this recipe is great! I would have never thought to make little “donuts” but that is just so cute. I might have to just find an excuse to make red velvet cake soon though – cravings are definitely kicking in. Thanks for sharing!
