Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese COOL WHIP Frosting

I bet you would never believe that one of my favorite frosting uses COOL WHIP Whipped Topping. This simple cream cheese and COOL WHIP frosting is actually the first homemade (well much more semi-homemade) frosting that I learned to make from one of my good friends. I love this frosting so much on red velvet and carrot cakes, but also on white vanilla cakes.

I tried to make these little red velvet cupcakes as cute as I could. I used a pastry bag with a #2D flower tip to cover my little cupcakes in white flowers. It’s a really easy way to frost cupcakes. These would be perfect for a little girl’s tea party, or even a flower-themed birthday party.
