Now I did warn you that there were a LOT of family birthdays this time of year, and we just celebrated 2 more this past weekend. My lovely and wonderful daughter (Laila) actually has the same birthday as my lovely and wonderful soon-to-be daughter-in-law (Jannie). Although they each had their own celebrations on the actual day, we had a family brunch at my house on Sunday. So, first things first — the cupcakes!
These are Red Velvet cupcakes, and they were oh so delicious. They were delicious because I didn't take the chance of messing them up by making them from scratch! I figured that Duncan Hines already knew what they were doing, so who was I to second-guess them. The cream cheese frosting is the same recipe I used last week. To decorate them, I sacrificed one cupcake and used the crumbs on top of the frosting. So pretty!
Now the cards. It's getting late and I'm getting sleepy, so I'll forego the details on these. If you have any questions, just leave a comment and I'll fill you in (or get back in and edit this post).
and for Jannie:Night-night!
