Red Velvet Cheesecake Bites!!

Lately, I have been itching to make something red velvet (maybe it is because Valentine's Day is right around the corner), but I wanted to try something out of the norm.... I was not in the mood to deal with frosting and piping and all that typical cream cheese frosting jazz.  So then I thought how can I incorporate the cream cheese frosting part without having to pipe it.  I thought about injecting the cupcakes with frosting but that just didn't seem creative enough, so then I thought: cheesecake + red velvet cupcakes = :)
