My propensity for the sweet stuff has been shared with you all here, here and here. At the moment the fairest of them all is still the red velvet cupcake. I’m a bit surprised at this fact since I tend to be a bit fickle when it comes to sweets, and the flavour of the month rarely occupies my heart for as long as the red velvet has. Last weekend I tried my hand at baking a batch of these delicious beauties. I was a bit disappointed with the colour, as it turned out a brick red colour instead of the vibrant red that I was after. I will keep trying until I get this right. In the meantime if any of you have any tips on how to get the colour right, please do share!
