Red Velvet Cupcakes!!

My absolute favorite cake is Red Velvet Cake. Well, my coworker told me about a baker who has a blog and will often put recipes on there www.joythebaker.com. I decided I wanted to try my hand as some recipes from scratch. This being one of them, Red Velvet cupcakes. I think they are pretty good for my first try! :) I hate to admit but I think this is the first thing I have truly made from scratch with out being with my grandmother-in-law or my great aunt. :) Here are some pictures to show my work and also, you can tell I had fun with the icing...definitly not a cake decorator!! ha!! I had fun though!

My next adventure is homemade pasta. I will let you know how that one turns out!! :-/

The Icing...Cream Cheese Icing!! My favorite!!! :)

My Dad...

My Mom and Dad came over to my house the other day and instead of interupting the constant talking that Mom and I were doing to ask for a blanket he decided he would make one with what he could find on the floor beside our chair (newspaper). It was hilarious to turn around and see him making a blanket out of newspaper. haha!! :)

Italian Spaghetti

Amber gave me a recipe for spaghetti like they make in Italy and it was so good!! I forgot a few things in the spaghetti so I know it will be so much better the 2nd time I make it. Derek loved it this time thought and ate 3 servings!! And that is what really matters...as long as my Hubby likes it!!! :D
