Moist red velvet cake piled high with rich and creamy Nutella buttercream make these Red Velvet Nutella Cupcakes!
This week is an interesting one in my house because I have a house guest. We’re hosting a recently-turned-20-year-old college student who is traveling Europe for the summer between his two semesters of NYU in Paris and Prague. Jack is the son of a friend of mine from college. A growing boy. A boy with a bottomless pit of a stomach.
I have a teenage girl, a baby and a soldier who watches his diet. Jack has given me a bit of Culture. Shock.
Jack is 6’3″ and about a buck twenty… wet. And he can eat! The first night he was here we went out for ice cream and he put away a double scoop on a cone and then a 3 scoop sundae of ice cream. Yeah – I don’t know where he puts it all. And I’m totally jealous. haha
I promised his Mom I would bake for him while he’s here. Of course. hehe He requested red velvet… but since I had just made red velvet cupcakes I asked him for another flavor. Chocolate he says.
What could I possibly do different with red velvet or chocolate?
OH! Jack loves Nutella too!
Done! Red Velvet Nutella Cupcakes is what I’ll make! Moist red velvet cake topped with a rich Nutella buttercream. YES!
To make these cupcakes extra special, I used my brand-new not-even-on-the-market-yet grease proof liners from Sweets & Treats Boutique! Only myself and one other blogger have these polka dot liners! So a big thanks to Shannon for letting me have an exclusive first look at these sweet liners!
Don’t you just love the red velvet cupcakes in the Sweets & Treats Boutique liners? Polka dots just make everything more fun!
Shannon sent me the polka dot liners in 4 c0lors – black, red, green and blue. And I can’t wait for them to be available in a rainbow of colors! LOVE them!
