Bunko - Red & White for Valentine's Day

As my contribution to our monthly Bunko potluck, I made Red Velvet cupcakes with a Buttercream icing from Magnolia bakery. The icing is very simple and is a basic recipe, I would recommend following the instructions for how long to beat with the mixer to ensure that it is creamy enough. It's a sweet icing, so if you don't like very sweet icings this won't be for you. The cupcake is nice and moist and has a great flavor to it... as I haven't had red velvet cake in the past I have nothing to compare this to, but I must say I enjoyed it and would definitely make again since they are so festive looking.
