The month of February is always so crazy for us because of a lot of different things, and I love how Valentine’s Day makes our little family stop, pause, and reflect on how much we truly are loved and how much we love each other.
It is the same thing at school and church, and it’s nice to have a little reminder of all the love in our community. I really wanted to make something for valentine’s day that kind of shared that perspective of valentine’s day. So, for the month of February, I made the cutest little red velvet mini Bundt cakes.
For Christmas, my mom got me the Dash mini Bundt cake maker. This is absolutely the cutest thing in the entire world, and I had so much fun using it.
These little mini cakes are the perfect gift to give to your closest friends and family for Valentine’s Day. The recipe tastes delicious, and the cream cheese glaze on top gives it the perfect touch! I love these adorable desserts and will thoroughly enjoy making them in the future.
I recently had a birthday, and right on time, I received some cute pink, red, and white heart sprinkles as well as red, pink, and white mini pearl dots and I knew they would be the perfect thing to top this dessert off.
After I drizzled the glaze onto the cakes, I sprinkled those on, and they were instantly my favorite thing ever! Red velvet has a special place in my heart, and I couldn’t wait to dive into that little cake.
This is honestly an amazing tasting recipe. I got the recipe from the little instruction guide that came with the Bundt maker, and it even had the cream cheese glaze recipe to match!
It also had a little guide to help you figure out which glaze would go with what cake flavor the best. I thought that instruction manual was very helpful, and I will be keeping those recipes for safe-keeping!
The cooker came with a little removal tool that you set under the cake before you bake it, but it is only helpful if you are making them in a hurry or don’t exactly care how they look. If you do want them to look pretty, then I would suggest making sure that the batter is evenly distributed throughout the Bundt maker and NOT use the removal tool. For some reason, this makes it uneven, so if you cook it on a flat surface, it will much more likely not be crooked.
