Happy {love} Day!

So in honor of Valentine's Day my co-workers are being rewarded with these fiery little cupcakes. The recipe is from Cupcake Wars ( but I did adjust it sparingly. They have a nice little bit of heat and a subtle cinnamon flavor. Definitely yummy!

In my version I cut the cayenne pepper in half, cheated and used 2 T King Arthur's Red Velvet cake flavoring instead of the red food coloring, omitted the cinnamon from the frosting (didn't want a funky color which the cinnamon will do) and used about 2-3 T Cinnamon Schnapps. ( I would say add 1T and taste from there until you are satisified with the flavoring, mine were mild but you could ramp them up if you like it super hot!)
