Vanilla & Chocolate Swirled Icing Red Velvet Cupcakes ♥

I love baking on Saturday mornings, it makes me feel like I've accomplished so much even though the day has just begun and then my family and I have something yummy to graze on throughout the weekend. Last weekend I decided to give my new piping bag and nozzles a workout so I made my favourite, red velvet cupcakes and then decided to do a mixture of vanilla and chocolate fudge icing, something which I had seen done in rainbow form on a friends Facebook page and absolutely loved. This technique is really simple to do, I just simply put a scoop of vanilla icing into my piping bag followed by a scoop of chocolate fudge icing and the effect it created was amazing looking. I could clearly see the white/brown contrast in the first few cupcakes and then it turned into caramel coloured swirls, so classic and delicious looking. I then finished with gold and silver ball sprinkles along with some white and milk chocolate stars. These beauties were absolutely delicious!

Have you had or made any tasty treats this weekend?
