Red Velvet

Break is finally here. Thankfully, this senior year is about to end. I cannot wait to graduate. But I spent the first day of Christmas break baking. It was great. I got a cupcake recipe/decorating cookbook from a teacher I am an aid for in the school, and I love it! So I was inspired to make some cupcakes with cute decorations and I was craving red velvet. And of course cream cheese frosting. So as the base was already red, I decided to make Santa hats. The ones in the pictures aren't that appealing, but I promise they look much better in person! I found out it is much easier to let the frosting sit in the fridge for an hour or so before you start building it up. It won't slide as much if you do that.
As for life..its going. I'm ready for snow to get on the ground. I think if it's this cold...why isn't there snow? Might as well make it pretty if it is going to be miserably cold. And of course I am still waiting for that day when something magical happens. Someone once told me.."surprises keep life exciting." I guess that is true, whatever the situation.
