Easy Red Velvet Cupcakes

Thursday, 29 March 2012

I hope to make this the last of my generic posts... But these cupcakes just had to be done! Torn between Hummingbird Red Velvets or a new recipe by Pinkspoonula on Allrecipes [which has LOADS of positive feedback], I opted for the one I've never done before. Allrecipes! Hummingbird's recipe for Red Velvet Cupcakes is of course, delicious, but something also tells me that it's not to be trusted...I’ve tried it time and time again and there is not ONE similarity between my home baked version and the Signature Hummingbird version bought from the wonderful shops themselves. They’re always too vinegary and flaky! Obviously Hummingbird is entitled to their secret ingredients, but they don’t give any leeway with their recipes for sure! (Apart from their Carrot Cake).

I followed the recipe for these lavish Red Velves step by step to the very last detail and no adaptations were made because I’ve never tried it before and I wanted to see how good it really was. For these reasons I thought it best not to write out the recipe as my own but to link you straight to the recipe which you can find here. J

These are by far the best Red Velvet Cupcakes I have ever made, I used Red Americolor for the deep red sponge, and Philidelphia for the not-too-sweet frosting. Give this recipe a go and tell me what you thought of it! 

So there they are! Icing could do with some improving, but what did you think?
