Just the mere mention of Red Velvet cakes or cupcakes is enough to delight me...I simply loveeeee Red Velvet! I find it so sexy & to me it exhume elegance. Don't ask me why I think so, but my guess is because of its velvety red color. I've always associate red with sexy & elegance...What more velvety red! Such a beautiful color indeed!
Bear with me but I had always have this 'craziness' over Red Velvet cakes. I guess it wouldn't be a surprise to all that it is then my ULTIMATE recipe to try out! Honestly, I've been wanting to bake it but never did have the guts! I just don't want to spoil the elegance of the cake by spoiling it :-P That's just how special Red Velvet is to me!
To those who is wondering what Red Velvet is all about, allow me to delight you with some description of it ;-)
A Red Velvet Cake is actually a cake with either a dark red, bright red or red-brown color. Common ingredients in making a Red Velvet are buttermilk, butter, flour, cocoa, and of course the red food coloring. Because of its bright red color, Red Velvet is very dramatic looking which is offset by a creamy white frosting, usually made of cream cheese. Red Velvet is considered a kind of comfort food & of late, it is gaining it's popularity in commercial bakeries & cafes, especially in the U.S & Canada.
I had my shares of Red Velvet at some of the restaurants & cafes around town...and I finally decided that it's time for me to bake my own version of Red Velvet Cupcakes...
