Cynthia's Red Velvet Roses Cupcake

I made these Red Velvet Roses Cupcakes for my wedding helpers over the weekend. Indeed, we have been blessed with loads of help from friends and loved ones in the midst of our wedding preparations.

I also embarked on my first video tutorial for baked goodies. Hopefully all of you like the video tutorials I've been doing! (: In any case, this is a classic Red Velvet Cupcake recipe that I did a twist to. It takes about 2 hours in all to bake this and I'd rate it a difficulty level 3 out of 5.
