Most of tomorrow's dishes will need to be prepared just before serving, but dessert can be made up ahead of time. Thus, today is for [cup]cake-baking. We've chosen this route in opposition to the traditional holiday pies, in an attempt to branch out and start our own traditions. We both enjoy Red Velvet cake, so why not try some Red Velvet Cupcakes for Thanksgiving? [Also, I had a tree-shaped pan I wanted to try out as well.]
Little Man was happy to help Momma do some baking!
