Today I made these:
Red Velvet Cupcakes!
I decided I was going to give these a go as soon as I saw them on Cindy’s blog, and since I was having visitors with a bunch of kids today, the perfect opportunity arose! Or at least, I thought it was perfect but on reflection, making cupcakes with red food colouring and a cream cheese icing – for kids – was perhaps not as perfect as I originally thought…oh well, some of the kids loved them, some had to scrape the icing off and some weren’t that keen.
But I managed to polish off 3 of them in quick(ish) succession.
They were delicious! Although I couldn’t get the icing as thick as I think it probably should be (and I only made half as much as the recipe specified, which was still plenty). I would definitely make these again! Red cupcakes! Red! Chocolate! Cream Cheese icing! What’s not to love! Thanks Cindy for the inspiration and the recipe!
