Red Velvet Cupcakes with Oreo Cream Cheese Frosting

My daughter decided she loves red velvet, so I thought we'd make a recipe using red velvet for a Valentine treat. I sent them for a few days in the kids' lunch boxes, evidently they caught the eye of the staff.  The next time I volunteered at the school, some of the staff commented on how good they looked.  lol. 
 Red Velvet Cake Mix

Make cupcakes using directions/ingredients on box.

Frosting:
1/2 cup butter, softened
8 oz cream cheese, softened
milk, as needed
4 cups powdered sugar, approx.
10 crushed oreos

Cream together butter and cream cheese.  Slowly add powdered sugar.  If needed add a tiny bit of milk.  Fold in crushed oreos.  Pipe onto cupcakes.  I topped the cupcakes with oreos I cut in half, a full oreo woud also work.  Maybe even the mini ones....

Valentine Donuts

Walmart had these cute heart shaped donuts, so I ordered some for Kyla's third grade classroom party and added some cute little arrows....


*Arrows made using wooden kabob sticks and paper I cut.
