Double the Sweets: Red Velvet Cake + Chocolate Devil’s Food Cupcakes

For Katie and Alan’s gathering at their new home, I decided to make a two-layered red velvet cake, with the frosting of choice- cream cheese frosting. The cake was easy to make, and turned out really moist; however, I was struggling with frosting the cake to perfection.  I had crumbs of cake mixed in with the frosting, but I was determined to smooth the tops and sides out. After carefully scraping and leveling the frosting numerous times, I was finally satisfied.

The top of the cake drizzled with dark chocolate.

Decorated with hand-made pink roses.

Katie and Alan’s adorable daughter, Ava, requested cupcakes, so I whipped up a batch of chocolate devil’s food cupcakes (a new recipe I’m experimenting with!). These one’s were definitely more chocolatey in texture than the other chocolate cupcakes in my other posts. Since I had extra cream cheese frosting left, I used them for the cupcakes as well.
