the frosting she has traditionally used for them is a very strange one because it uses Crisco for a part of it, but since that is the only time we use Crisco in anything around here we let it slide (pun intended ).Flowerbug, I just love red velvet cupcake or red velvet cake! I just ate 3 mini ones that I had in the freezer.
same here on the reducing sugar in things. i'm down quite a bit the past few years. i notice it the most in the late morning where i used to get very sleepy once the sugar buzz wore off.Flowerbug, I make my frosting with cream cheese but I've cut the powdered sugar by almost half what the recipe calls for. I've cut sugar on all my baking recipes. It's just too much for me. Gotta have cream cheese frosting for my red velvets though.
