Red Velvet Cupcakes

My first attempt at Red Velvet Cupcakes…

Didn’t go too badly considering I didn’t have enough food colouring; had to use red wine vinegar instead of white; and kind of messed up the consistency of the icing… But no complaints so far from those who have sampled the wares ;)

Used THIS RECIPE from the BBC Good Food website and have finally figured out why they are called red “velvet” cupcakes – the batter, if mixed according to instruction, is smooth, thick and silky – just lovely!

Personally, I prefer a lighter cupcake (these are quite cake-heavy) but the sponge and cream cheese icing combo are just amazing, so all in all a winner!

For anyone keen to give them a try – it looks more complicated than it is, I promise – go for it, happy baking!
