Chapter 28: Babes on Red Velvet Cupcakes

The red velvet cupcakes is a delicacy made famous in the Southern United States. The cake owed it's deep red colour to the mixture of red food colouring and cocoa powder.

Through out the little experience I have in baking, this is the only recipe that uses white vinegar at the very end of the recipe. Therefore, those attempting on the recipe would need to be very careful not to over mixed, as it would result in the cake coming out hard.

It is advisable to mix manually after the vinegar and baking powder has been added to the batter.

The cream is made from a mix of cream cheese, butter and white chocolate.

Align CenterThe fusion of the sweetness of the cake and sourish and saltiness of the cream, makes eating the red velvet cupcake a gastronomical experience that leaves you craving for more. For those trying the recipe, it is definitely a culinary challenge. I have for one, have to go through trial and error, this being my fourth time, to reap the expected result.

Chapter 27: Babes on Green is the New Black Party

We had a green themed party on the 14 February. Chocolate flavoured cupcakes has always been the favourites compared to other flavours, we've decided to bake them and decorated them with green themed butter cream.

A simple design using the usual M2 nozzle and with red heart candy as a finishing.

Chapter 25: Babes Take On Red Velvet On Lamington Top

We've decided to explore another recipe of Red Velvet cupcakes (Thanks Linad, for the recipe). Usually, it is topped with cream cheese icing. However, this time around we've decided to topped it with chocolate icing and freshly ground coconut.

Here's the Red Velvet before they were topped with chocolate icing.

Here they are again, topped with chocolate butter icing.

Our third try of the Red Velvet recipe, reckon this is the best outcome.

Chapter 24: Babes Take On Red Velvet Cupcakes

Our second attempt on Red Velvet cupcakes. The first attempt was unsuccessful as the texture turned out hard due to over beating. This is one recipe that you should only use a whisk and never a mixer.

Here's the cupcakes right out from the oven. If you do not prefer too much food colouring in the batter, you could add more coco powder for a deeper shade of red.

Instead of cream cheese icing, we've decided to use butter cream instead and sprinkled it with Oreos.

It tasted just as good with butter icing...Yums!!

Chapter 23: Babes Take On Chocolate Oreo Cupcakes

We've tweaked the recipe for vanilla cupcakes and made it into chocolate. The recipe requires three cups of flour and we've substitute the third cup with coco powder. In addition, instead of full cream milk, we used soy milk. The result, a melt in the mouth chocolate cupcakes with a rich chocolate taste, that left everyone wanting more.

The bellyaching chocolate cupcake...

The cupcake topped with vanilla icing, sprinkled with Oreos and decorated with red-heart shaped candy.

We've alternate the design by sprinkling some with rainbow candy balls and decorating it with red heart shaped candy in the middle.
