"Do you know how to make a red velvet cake?"
"Can you make one?"
"Uhhhhh yeah….I think so."
I immediately called Denine, she's the one that inherited the baking gene. I told her I was looking online at recipes and was instantly overwhelmed. I was hoping if I sounded really desperate she would just show up on my doorstep with one she magically whipped up.
A week later it wasn't my sister at my door, but the Barefoot Contessa's Red Velvet Cupcake kit. I couldn't believe it! I wish everyone had a sister as sweet as mine!
Barefoot Contessa Red Velvet Cupcake & Cream Cheese Frosting Kit

Line muffin tin with paper liners. Combine 6 tablespoons butter and 1 cup cake mix. Beat on medium speed until fluffy. With mixer on low add eggs one at a time, and then add alternately in thirds remaining mix and 1/2 cup water. Fill muffin cups until almost full.
