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.
