Red Velvet Cupcakes

Red Velvet cupakes

Later that day we brought some Red Velvet cupcakes to the party. I added some cute cupcake toppers on top that I found here. I added a little blue food coloring to the pastry bag when I topped off the frosting, this way it made a swirl of two colors.


Another favorite that I made today for another barbecue I went to were these great brownies.  I am sure there are more great things made with wonderful red velvet ingredients. Let me know what you like to bring to barbecues, and leave me a comment or follow me on Instagram.
