I thought I should try and expand my cake repertoire, so had a go at some Red Velvet cupcakes today. (I had this idea about 40 minutes before I had to do the school run, so they were somewhat hurried...)
I used a pretty standard recipe, similar to that in the Hummingbird Bakery book, and they were a lovely light texture, but I don't think the flavour is anything to shout about - I still prefer basic Victoria Sponge cupcakes, or chocolate ones. I topped them with a (very runny!) cream cheese frosting.
