Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

How often have I said I (Sonia) am not a baker? Probably around a million times. However, my mindset is slowly changing ever since I received a beautiful KitchenAid mixer from Adam for our seventh dating anniversary. Seriously, I am absolutely in love with it and it is giving me the urge to bake. Combine that with a coworker/friend’s birthday last week and you have these amazingly moist red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting adapted from Divas Can Cook.

Amazing April: Recipe Roundup

Sometimes it feels like days are going by so slowly and sometimes you wake up feeling like yesterday was the first day of the year and it’s actually May.  That happened to me this morning.  I am so close to have been living and working in Vancouver for a year and yet I still feel like a newbie.  We’re going through some sort of heat wave here at the moment (24 degrees in April constitutes a heat wave in West Coast Canada) and I am LOVING it.  If today is a predictor for the rest of May it is sure to be a beautiful spring.  Of course as any Vancouverite knows, it could be raining in 5 minutes however I have a feeling we could be in for a lovely spring/summer.  While the weather wasn’t as great in April it was still an amazing month over here at Everybody Loves Pretty.  We continue to be exceedingly grateful for all the support and comment/like/follow love we’re getting over here.  So AGAIN (you’ll hear it a lot) thank you!
