a couple of days late, YES, but here nonetheless... just in time for Valentine's day! Here is the new recipe:
RED VELVET CUPCAKES
High res files for printing can be found HERE!!! Lemme just say though, about this recipe... I hadn't ever had red velvet cake so I didn't know what to expect. The first time I tried 1 recipe and didn't like the texture at ALL, tried it again and really didn't like the taste too much, especially the cream cheese frosting part in it, so I combined some stuff in my brain with the other recipes and this is what I got! Joe loved the cupcakes, but I had more fun decorating them when they were done! Although not edible, I used some small Prima flowers, red hearts confetti candies, and pink and red sprinkles... that was the fun part! So give them a try, if you are a fan of red velvet, you should enjoy these :)
Last weekend, I also had the pleasure of doing a newborn shoot in L.A. I think band new, teeny tiny babies are my FAVORITE types of sessions! Kinda makes me want another one, but if I have enough newborn shoots to keep me busy, then it's kind of like borrowing and giving back so I don't have to change a poopy right? My sister is scheduled to have her "peanut" (and yes that has been his official name since we found out she was preggers) and I doubt it will change even after birth, but I can't wait to really borrow her little one and as soon as the screaming comes or its time for me to sleep, I can hand him right on over back to momma and papa... nice being aunty all of the time, not nice and not so fun being mommy sometimes!
Anyways, back to my shoot. It was SO much fun! I love parents that don't have a bunch of restrictions and are easy going with what I want to do... makes the shoot SO much easier! Here are a few of my favorites:
finally had a chance to use my vintage scale I bought a couple of years ago...
and my ABSOLUTE favorite of the whole shoot.....
such a sweet, tender moment.... aahhhhhh. I am happy. Off to bed with me now! Take care and have a very loved, sweet V-Day with your sweetie and your kids if ya got those running around!
