Tainted Love Red Velvet Mini Cupcakes

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

    Very big cute factor. I, too, have never had red velvet cake, so I would also appreciate you sending some my way – in fact, swap ya for some potato bread, lol :)

  7. Adorable does not seem to adequately describe these. I suddenly have a craving for red velvet! :)
    PS – I love the skulls for the emo kids

    had some really awful red velvet cupcakes yesterday… these look much much tastier–and sinister!
