As promised, today we’re sharing with you the recipe we used to make the celebratory red velvet cupcakes on Monday. We found two different recipes online and combined them with a few tweaks. This recipe makes 24 servings so feel free to cut it down by half if you only want to make a dozen of them.

Exactly one year ago today I announced that we switched to a new domain. Happy birthday to VanFoodies.com – we’re one year old!

VanFoodies is one!

VanFoodies is one!

One year old? But you’ve got blog posts dated all the way back in 2006!

Yes, if you had the opportunity to go through my old posts, you would notice that I’ve been blogging since 2006. Back then I was just doing it leisurely and didn’t really consider myself a blogger. The turning point was last year when I felt the warm welcome from the food blogging community and decided to take my blog to the next level. It’s when I got the domain name VanFoodies that this site really started to take off. In addition, I had the privilege of having Mr. and Frank joining me to provide readers with different perspectives of food.

To celebrate this special occasion, I enlisted the help of Mr. to whip up a batch of delicious red velvet cup cakes. I created my recipe from a couple different sources (one for the cake and one for the frosting), with a few of my own touches. I’m not known for my cooking skills or being able to cook at all, but once in awhile I surprise myself and others by making something yummy. This cupcake recipe is fairly easy to follow. Check back on Wednesday for the recipe – it’ll be perfect for Christmas parties!

Even though we are nowhere near rich and famous (hence no contest or party to celebrate our anniversary lol), and we are not blogging everyday like other fellow food bloggers (you know who you are!), we do try to update as much as we can to keep you entertained.

Happy birthday red velvet cupcakes

Thank you for supporting VanFoodies in the past year and we look forward to sharing more of our food adventures with you all!!

Cheers,
