Happy V-D

I don't know what you guys are doing today to celebrate, but my co-workers and I are going to shoot guns to recover from this weekend together. For reals! It's our staff holiday party. First we are going to shoot hand guns (!?!?) and then we are going to have a private lunch party at a super rad brick oven (but not pizza) restaurant in town. The Quaker in me shudders at the idea of being in a room full of guns but it's the promise of lunch that keeps me interested.

Also, I made red velvet cupcakes with vanilla bean cream cheese frosting. They were so delicious. I followed this recipe here. The only changes I made were to double the salt in the cake part and half the sugar in the frosting part. And I used vanilla bean instead of extract.
I can't muster the strength to write the recipe here...I need to save the strength in my arms for shooting... go forth and prosper.

Oh yum – I loooove red velvet cupcakes. Always used to get them at the Hummingbird in Portobello when I lived there. Um, not so sure about the shooting though – but it could be fun!

Nothing says Valentines Day like guns...LOL but in YOUR defense my daughter went to a bday party at Laser Tag!

Our dinner is all red with strawberry pie for dessert - homemade whipped cream? omg

But I must say I want your cupcake pan -where did you find it? I love red velvet too!

Happy V Day!
