Red velvet mini bundt cakes with a sweet cream frosting and garnished with conversation hearts make the perfect Valentine’s Day treat!
Do you love Red Velvet? My son says, “Isn’t Red Velvet just chocolate that is dyed red?” I think the answer is kind of a “yes,” but truthfully, who cares. The moist, delicious flavor of red velvet and sweet creamy goodness of a cream cheese based frosting = LOVE!
I bought the Wilton 6-Cup Mini Fluted Pan, and I have really enjoyed it. This was a perfect excuse to use them! And how could I not include some conversation hearts? I did not wait for my cakes to cool completely before adding my frosting, so it really seeped in, but that is my impatience coming through!
Can you see the cute lip sprinkles I have on here? I got them at Ross of all places. But you can order some here:Confetti Kissing Lips 2.8 oz. CONKL
This mix is pretty easy to make, but if you want to take the even easier way out on this, buy a red velvet cake mix, and then whip up some frosting to top it with. But if you want to make it yourself, there is a delightful recipe included below. It is from overtimecook.com, with slight adaptations. Enjoy!
