Mam Papaul's Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Found this cake mix (that included frosting!) when I was in Williamsburg shopping a few weeks ago.

Here is what the cake mix box says:

"So many stories of the origins of cakes and pastries recall the day of the Belle Epoque, with all its sophistication and style. Oftentimes, these recipes are lost through the generations, but not this time! My grandmother - Mam Papaul - was not a lady of high society. How she came upon these recipes remains a family mystery and a perpetual favorite. Bake them with love for your family while enjoying a piping hot cup of Cafe au Lait."...signed by Nancy Wilson, President.

Here's the link to Mam Papaul's web site... and have a great week!

Rock On, CQ


  1. I want to eat them all!

  2. Oh my goodness those are too much! I LOVE the style it is frosted in.

    And your dog is just WAY too cute!

  3. sweetness! these look delish (and pretty). cupcakes and doggies--adorable.

  4. The cupcakes look incredible. The puppy is so very cute. Did he get a taste?

  5. I'm going to try this. I love the look of the frosting reminds me of swirled ice-cream cones.

    Looks goodm but how did they taste?

  7. Those cupcakes look great.

    I love it when food boxes have a little story or history written on the side of the box.

    It's a periodic table of cupcakes - I thought you might enjoy it.
