Red. Finally!

May 31, 2010

So last night i attempted another batch of red velvet cupcakes. I have been battling to get the color and the texture right, but i think i have found a good recipeΒ  (4th one) which i’m going to super hang onto. The icing calls for cream cheese and mascarpone , i didn’t have both, so i made a simple cream cheese, butter, icing sugar frosting. Yum! But i’m definitely trying the mascarpone next time. If anyone attempts these, please let me know how they turn out, i want to know if the colour was just a fluke or not x-x i will post the recipe up tomorrow, forgot it at home. Obviously.

This my friend’s new beagle puppy called Playdough. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! If i could, i would squash this thing into a ball and eat it with butter! Ok, i wouldn’t, but what is it about puppies that make you want to squeeze the bejeezers out of them every time you hold them? Or is that just me? She is the sweetest thing ever and so sleepy. Man, i want a little tiny dog that stays little and tiny forever. Can someone please invent a breed called PuppyForever. Thanks.

    mmmmmmmmm velvet. Musn’t get confused and eat the puppy, or put mascarpone on his head. He looks squeezy as a ball of playdough for sure! Adorable

    I found the most amazing recipe for red velvet cupcakes. It’s from Jamie Oliver’s magazine and the icing (and batter) are heavenly! You should invest in the magazine πŸ™‚
