Red Velvet Cupcakes for Valentines Day

My daughter requested for red velvet cupcakes and since a friend ordered red velvet cupcakes too on Valentines Day, I decided to make also for my family. I had leftover fondants from previous projects I made so I thought why not add a simple flower on top of each cupcakes. I searched on youtube the easiest flower or rose tutorial I could find and I found one and it's really easy. I just needed more practice coz I am not quite happy with the finished flower fondant. Bu they said it's cute but when they tried eating the cupcakes they just removed the flower toppers and never ate it...haha. But it's ok coz it's really for decoration purposes only.

Churros with Caramel and Chocolate Dipping Sauce

This is the second time I made Churros or Mexican Fritters as what it's sometimes called. The first one had a very sticky dough and hard to pipe so I tried a different recipe with a softer dough and so I found a recipe from Martha Stewart's site Churros Recipe. This one has an egg so it has a softer dough but what I like is that I had an easy time piping it and frying it on the sauce pan.

Besides the chocolate dipping sauce, I also tried dipping it on a caramel sauce and it was delicious! I just bought the caramel sauce but I made the chocolate sauce by adding dark chocolates with milk. The kids loved it so much that now they always asks me when will I make Churros again, haha!
