I made red velvet cupcakes using this red velvet cake recipe from Loveless Cafe in Nashville, Tennessee. This recipe makes a really nice traditional red velvet cake. The cake part uses cocoa so it has that burgundy-ish red color to it. It is moist and has a good crumb. The frosting is delicious also, but may be on the sweeter side if you prefer a more pronounced cream cheese flavor like I do. To make cupcakes, just put them in liners in muffin pans and bake for 20 minutes (test with a toothpick).
Crazy for Crust is a very cool food blog of yummy baked goods! I love how playful she is, creating interesting desserts like ICEE cupcakes that look like ICEEs. She also puts a unique spin on classic favorites like fudge–lemon meringue pie fudge–or Rice Krispie treats with a banana cream pie variation. How about this yummy red velvet cheesecake loaf? A lot of the recipes use products like cake mixes, gelatin mixes, cereals and more to create fun and different goodies.
Just Desserts NYC is a very cool food blog by two former Rockettes who try the dessert offerings in the city and beyond. Check out the new Rockette Red Velvet cupcake at Magnolia Bakery in honor of the Rockettes. The site is brightly colored with great pics of yummy-looking desserts. I like their road trip finds!
Someone brought a little sugar Sweet sunshine to the office today. Nice Monday break! I had a sassy red velvet. If you like your frosting sweet, this is the cupcake for you!
