Frosting love . . .

Last week I saw a recipe for a yummy frosting on Pioneer Woman's blog.  As I read over the ingredients and directions for the frosting, I recognized the frosting.  It was MY favorite frosting!



I had always reserved this frosting recipe for when I made my friend Gail's Red Velvet Cake.  Because that's the frosting Gail said goes with the cake.  I trust Gail.


What I failed to consider was the possibility of frosting other baked goods with this amazing "cooked" frosting recipe.  I haven't made Red Velvet Cake in years -- although I used to make it for all the kids birthdays -- until they started requesting other cakes or desserts.  Or dirt....cake.  


Call it the power of suggestion -- or craving -- or a sweet tooth, but I needed a reason to make these chocolate cupcakes and frost them with my favorite frosting.  When friends of ours called Saturday afternoon inviting us over for dinner that night -- I started baking.


The frosting did not disappoint.
The cupcakes weren't bad either.
