I wanted to try my hands on Red Velvet Cake never done one, now remember I just started baking not to long ago. Well let me re-phase that, I baked when the kids was young but from a box.
I started to make fresh batter, flour, baking soda or powder, salt, eggs and you know the rest. I went on the computer and saw a lot of recipes for all flavors. I dappled and dip and would make it my own.
This Red Velvet recipes I left it the same. Before I make it for the kids and grand babies I try out the recipes. This red velvet cake was super moist and so soft. I had no choice to leave it exact.
I try to make small portion for the kids, unless they want a cake. I usually do cupcakes but this one I made a cake and took small a round cookie cutters. It made it look so cute. It’s great to display on a table for an event.
I just love to make pretty stuff, whether is baking, cooking, head-piece or just arts and crafts. Go figure I have 3 daughters and 3 granddaughters. I always try to do my best on all I do, especially when those grand babies ask me for something.
I’m going to give you the receipt for this delicious cake and remember it doesn’t have to be cupcakes. I did these for Valentine’s Day.
