I spent the morning/afternoon baking. I just love my new toy. As I mentioned earlier, I made the red velvet cupcakes. I only ate half of one. Quality control has to be done! 😉
Very red, huh? The recipe called for 1 1/2 ounces of red food coloring. I only had a 1 ounce bottle, but I can’t imagine needing any more!
I was going to do a whole other batch of green velvet, but let’s face it, I don’t need all of those cupcakes in this house!
The recipe said it should make 16 cupcakes, I ended up with 17. (5 of them were in the oven)
Hopefully my co-workers like them. 🙂 If not, I’m sure Dane won’t mind if we bring a few home.
That’s not all. I wanted to bake something else!! I was reading Peanut Butter Fingers earlier and came across these Chocolate Crinkle Cake Mix Cookies. I already had the ingredients on hand, so I whipped ’em up real quick.
These were super easy to make. I had half of one (more quality control) and it very good. I love that they’re cakey and powdered sugar is so good!
I will have to figure out the points on these babies. When I finished baking and cleaning up the huge mess I made, I headed to the gym to knock out W1D3 of C25K. The gym was a ghost town! Everyone must have been shopping. On to week 2 on Monday. 🙂
We’re off to my Christmas party now. I’ve only eaten 8PP all day, so hopefully I don’t go too overboard tonight. I will post my food log tomorrow.
Have a great night! 🙂
