    Crafty Lady 13's Note:

    I can't think of a better way to say "I love you," than a perfect Red Velvet Cupcake. These easy-to-make one-bowl cupcakes take the cake with just 180 calories and a mere teaspoon of added sugar. (For comparison, a typical bakery Red Velvet Cupcake with Cream Cheese Frosting has over 500 calories and a whopping 15 teaspoons of sugar). Recipe courtesy of Diabetes Health newsletter.
