I absolutely love having an excuse to bake; I think I could actually find a reason for every single moment of my life... Baking and then eating what I bake just makes the world seem like a much better (and sweeter) place.
The best part, what makes me even happier than baking and eating it’s actually seeing others enjoy what I do. That’s why I was inmediately in when I heard there was a bake sale at my college and that the money went to charity. I made quite a few cupcakes and I would have done more if it weren’t for the risk of people looking me like I am crazy (which they did anyway) or because my parents would kill me (they still don’t get why they should actually pay for the ingredients and not even get a bite, which is understandable too).
Anyway I took there some vanilla cupcakes and some not-so-red velvet cupcakes. I say not so red because they just weren’t red at all, I didn’t have the colorant and I thought they would have the same flavor after all (and they did) so why not?
I’ve talked before about the website joy of baking, all the recipes I’ve ever tried were fantastic so I went there and used the only red velvet cake recipe I had ever made before. And it’s SO.DAMN.GOOD, seriously: how do people come up with such great ideas?
I did make a mistake though; I actually used the cake recipe and not the cupcake recipe. It’s exactly the same but without baking powder, I realized that after the first batch was baked so the first ones weren’t that fluffy but still yummy.
You can find the recipe here, they are really good, trust me!
