Brenna Bakes: RED VELVET CUPCAKES

In case I haven’t mentioned it lately, I believe my coworker may be a demon in disguise. Not quite the devil incarnate, but definitely a figure from the deepest, darkest corners of hades. She was sent to earth solely to keep good people, like me, from obtaining a desirable weight. Her instrument of torture today: RED VELVET CUPCAKES!

As I was walking up to our office suite first thing this morning, I passed a coworker who works a level lower. He almost never comes upstairs and only one thing can usually bring him up here…the evil genius of one of our resident bakers. With a casual question of “Brenna?” to him, he answered around the cupcake he was about to put in his mouth…”Yep – red velvet cupcakes!” His wicked smile was a reflection of how she must have looked last night as she made them.

Suffice it to say, I could not pass up this display as I walked by her desk:

Resistance to these concoctions could not have been more futile, unless they were Borg Cupcakes!

Borg Cupcakes

Although not as cool-looking as those (seriously, Borg Cupcakes look amazing!), Brenna’s are glorious in their perfection:

Melt in your mouth, sweet, moist, beautiful red velvet and cream cheese masterpieces. Dammit Brenna! I have to go to Costa Rica soon and this does NOT help with the whole “fit in a swimsuit” requirement. *sigh*

Recipes

If you want to make these and tempt your fellow coworkers or family & friends, here are the links she provided me. Enjoy!

PS – In case anyone gets the wrong idea here, this is definitely all tongue-in-cheek. I love Brenna like the little sister I never had. My hips and scale aren’t too happy with her but the rest of me loves her. 🙂
