Tainted Love Red Velvet Mini Cupcakes

About a week ago I receive an invitation from Brianne and Alex to a party with the most creative theme I’ve heard in quite awhile: Friday the 13th / Valentine’s Day!

Conversation hearts and Killer Clowns, pink-tinted booze and blood-thirsty Birds…tonight we’re going to get a massive sugar rush and laugh while people get comedically massacred on the TV.

Our hosts outside-the-box party planning inspired me contribute some fitting treats: Tainted Love Red Velvet Mini Cupcakes.

My favorite recipe for a classic Southern Red Velvet Cake is from Sylvia Woods’ Family Soul Food Cookbook. Its deep, blood red color is shocking and gorgeous and the cream cheese frosting is downright addictive.

I upped the cute factor by pouring the batter into mini muffin molds and adjust my cooking time to 15 minutes.

Happy Friday the 13th Kiddies! xoxo
