After spending lots of time, money and calories at Sprinkles on Walton Street this summer,
I decided that it was time to make and frost a cupcakes myself. I’ve done it in the past… and have never been very good at the frosting part. I’m slowly getting better. I recently tested my skills on Martha Stewart’s Red Velvet Cupcakes.
I love Martha and her recipes… but this one, I was a tiny bit disappointed in.
I made these cupcakes for both my Grandmother’s 91st birthday party and for my coworker’s birthday celebration at work.
I had such high hopes for RED velvet cupcakes. After seeing this mixture:
I thought that I nailed the color. Unfortunately, they were more brown than red. At least they tasted wonderful. And my frosting skills really improved!
Well… at least on one of the cupcakes : )
