Being the week before Valentine’s day it is the week of all the school parties. I made these for #1’s class party this afternoon. Lucky for me my friend is making the cupcakes for #2’s party, as I will be making more cake in the next couple days than anyone really wants to know about, then I will be sick of it and not make it again for at least a month.
These were super simple and being short on time I just used a boxed cake mix, added a bit more vanilla to it, then added 1/2 a bottle of red food coloring. While it is not the most appealing thing, it works and the kids love it. On friday I will be making homemade red velvet and homemade devils food. They will be wonderful, but I just didn’t have the time to do that yesterday when I was in the office, making cake balls, and these cupcakes.
What fun things are you making for your kids this Valentine’s Day??
