Happy birthday to my Hubby

So it was my hubbys birthday on Sunday, he needed cake, but hes allergic to wheat.  Because I am a horrible wife I was out of his new favorite cake, Betty Crocker gluten free chocolate cake.  So I just made him a boring old wheat free cake and then made everyone else some new Betty Crocker Red Velvet Cupcakes!  They were very easy to make which was a good thing!

I work outside the house Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday nights and then all day Saturday and Sunday.  Lets just say I love Mondays :)  Its hard on both Kris and I now, but we don't have to pay for daycare, this way one of us is always home with the kids and we figure that once the kids are both in school then him and I can spend some time together again :)

Anyways, back to my point, we had everyone over for cake on Sunday night so the plan was to make cake and the cupcakes on Saturday night and then ice them on Sunday night right before everyone came over.  We ended up going on an impromptu date on Saturday night and my girlfriend babysat so of course we stayed up visiting with her when we got home from dinner so that put us a bit further behind again.  We also brought home ice cream so good luck getting the kids to bed after that.

Brandon was still up, at about 10:00 when I started the cupcakes, please don't judge me, and so we got started.  It was pretty easy, added a few things and mixed it up.  That's Brandon's favorite part.  I don't know what we did before the Kitchen Aid mixer because he works it better than I do. Baking with kids is the best, and I know he will remember it because he loves it so much!   He mixed it all up good and I poured it into my silicone baking cups, seriously love those as well, and then threw them in the oven.  We put the kids to bed and then hubby disappeared to bed and cleaned up the house, did the dishes, made his cake and then pulled them both out to cool.  It was an extra long night.

The cupcakes and cake were a huge hit.  Everyone loved the Red Velvet cupcakes.  How could you not, cream cheese icing, thank goodness it came in the box.  All I had to do was ice the cake right after I chowed down dinner on Sunday right before people were pulling into the driveway.  Then just cut off the tip of the icing bag and iced the Red Velvet cupcakes up in about 2 minutes!  You know it was rushed when I didn't even have time to snap a pic of the finished cupcakes and hubby usually takes pics of singing so clearly that didnt' happen :)

They were all gone before the party was over, no leftovers for me :(  If you want to try them you should do it soon as they are only here for a limited time.
