Valentine Cupcakes

 I completely forgot about posting a pic of these cute little cupcakes! My daughter wanted to make cupcakes for her boyfriend for Valentine's Day, so we got out my beloved kitchen aid mixer and got to work.

Recipes are from my Betty Crocker cookbook.
Cocoa Fudge Cake:
1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups of sugar
2/3 cup cocoa
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
 1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla ( I recommend real vanilla)
2 eggs
heat oven to 350 degrees
beat all ingredients on low for 30 seconds, scrape down sides of bowl
beat on high for 3 minutes

Creamy Cocoa frosting:
1/3 cup butter softened
1/3 cup cocoa 
2 cups powered sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
2 tablespoons milk ( I used about 5)

The hearts are made from candy microwaveable wafers. 
I put them in an icing bag that was microwave safe. 
Then I drew heart shapes on wax paper. 
After they have hardened, you can easily remove them. 

Roses from her beau!

Happy Belated Valentines Day!!!

I started visiting your blog and found it really interesting.I was wondering if you would be interested in creating a profile on Glipho.Its a social publishing engine for bloggers/writers wherein you can promote your blog and also follow other writers/bloggers,We have a variety of categories like travel,society,fashion,lifestyle etc where you can promote your blog posts.

If your blog is powered by Blogger,Wordpress or Tumblr,you can import posts to Glipho from your existing blog without affecting it at all.Further you can attach twitter,facebook,Google + accounts to your Glipho profile and promote your blog on a larger scale.You can also connect your Instagram,Flickr or picasa accounts to drag and drop your photos into content.

I’d suggest having a look at the website to see what it looks like :)

I will be always happy to help if you have any questions regarding setting up a profile.You can sign up using your Facebook,twitter,LinkedIn or Google+ account.

Happy writing!

Good Luck,
