Red Velvet Baby Shower Cupcakes
June 22, 2010
It has been well over a year since my last post, but I’ve been so busy! I’m in the middle of starting my own little cupcake/cake business. I have two wedding cakes to bake at the end of the year.
Anyway, one of my favourite cakes of all time is red velvet. Here in Australia it is relatively unknown so when I bake it for my friends, they just can’t get enough. I use a variation of the recipe from here: http://tastedbytwo.com/2009/06/23/recipe-magnolia-red-velvet-cupcakes/ but I use buttermilk rather than whole milk. I also use my own recipe for cream cheese icing.
So on the weekend my friend ask me to bake red velvet cupcakes for her baby shower. She’s having a little girl so I thought pink blossoms would go very well with the rich velvety red. I think they look too pretty to eat!
