More FAKE Cupcakes..ready to go!

Here is the second box of cupcakes for the Giveaway. I just realized that I never posted a picture! They are FAKE as well, the same as the first box, only there is just a pair of them inside this box. Looking forward to Tomorrow!!!!

I made this cake last night for husband and my (14th!) Wedding Anniversary. Anyway, it was so so so good. I have to share the recipe, which I found online at Traveler's Choice Internet Cookbook. I've never really made Red Velvet Cake before, except from a box once) This was too good to keep to myself.

1 cup shortening (butter-flavored Crisco)
1-1/2 cups white sugar
2 eggs
2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
1 ounce red food coloring
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup buttermilk (not powdered)
2-1/2 cups sifted cake flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1-1/2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
Red Velvet Frosting:
5 Tablespoons flour
1 cup milk
1 cup white sugar
1 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
Cake: Cream shortening, sugar, and eggs. Make a paste with cocoa and food coloring; add to creamed mixture. Mix salt and vanilla with buttermilk and add alternatively with flour to creamed mixture. Mix soda and vinegar and fold into mixture. Do not beat. Bake in two 9-inch layer pans, greased and floured, at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes.

Frosting: Cook flour and milk until thick, stirring constantly. (This will be as thick as paste.) Let cool until cold. Cream together sugar, butter, and vanilla; add to cold mixture. Beat until the mixture is the consistency to spread. When finished, it is similar to the likes of whipped cream. It makes the cake!
