Red Velvet Cupcakes


If you read my other blog, you will have seen my post a while back about the Red Velvet Cupcakes that I had tried out, and whilst they were tasty, were nothing to write home about but looked fabulous.

I have changed my mind. I did a batch this morning for a client – and tried a different recipe. Martha Stewart – say no more!

Wow – they were really delicious. Whilst not as red as my previous bake, the taste was far superior. Velvety, moist, a mix between choc & vanilla and just yum. But the icing on the top was the frosting – literally. Cream cheese frosting that was not runny and difficult to work with. Thick, glossy and a breeze to frost with. Plus of course being just the right combination between sweet & savoury. Yummy.

Luckily there are 12 remaining – and it’s weekend? What do you think i’ll be doing?
