Royal Blue Cupcakes

I'm excited for Sunday. This Sunday is not only Easter, it's the start of TLC's Royal Wedding Week. You see, I'm a huge wedding fan. HUGE. I love all things wedding; it doesn't matter what it is, if it has to do with a wedding, I am immediately interested. So you can probably imagine how excited I am about the upcoming royal wedding. I already told the hubby that he better record it for me and he thinks that I'm a little strange for getting so excited over it. 

So when I decided to bake some Easter-decorated cupcakes, I was inspired to make them ROYAL blue in honor of the royal wedding...well, I tried to make them royal blue but they turned out to be more of a teal. But that's ok with me, since teal is my favorite color. 

I used my favorite red velvet cake recipe from (I just substituted the red food coloring for blue). This recipe is so moist and simple to make, and the cream cheese frosting is to die for (I tinted the frosting with gel coloring).

Not the royal blue I was going for but still a gorgeous color

They rose perfectly and smelled so yummy

Are any of you excited for the royal wedding that's coming up on April 29th?
