Red Velvet Blossoms

Red Velvet Blossoms - mini red velvet cakes dunked in a homemade cream cheese glaze. These things are CRAZY good! I ate WAY too many of these cakes. Red Velvet cake mix, chocolate pudding, oil, eggs, cream cheese, milk, powdered sugar. Make 5 dozen - great for holiday parties!

Stop what you are doing and make these Red Velvet Blossoms NOW! They are SO good!! Little red velvet cakes dipped in a cream cheese glaze. It might not get any better than this! Seriously.  I love bite-sized desserts and these Red Velvet Blossoms are some of the best I've eaten.

The little cakes start with a box of red velvet cake mix. You do not make the cake according to the package directions. I repeat, do NOT make the cake. You are just going to use the mix. While the cakes bake, make the cream cheese glaze. You want to dunk the cakes in the glaze while they are still warm. I refrigerated the cakes after I glazed them.

The recipe makes about 5 dozen. These Red Velvet Blossoms are great for parties or gift giving. I did "sample" a few (or about a dozen), so you might plan on having about 4 dozen to give away.

    1. I dropped them into the glazed and fished them out with a fork. I put the fork on the bottom of the cake and shook off the excess glaze.
