Chapter 26: Babes Take On Pink, White & Red

Another simple design using the M2 nozzle. We alternate design between pink and white icing.

Feel like sinking in your teeth into one of these? Fret not, you are not alone ;-)

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.
