Red Velvet Love

For the past 4 years I'm always accepting orders from my mom's friends, they seem to love my cheesecakes and carrot cake so much that they consistently order every year. But last December, I want to try something new - Red Velvet cupcakes! And you wanna know why? It's simple, it's the latest craze!

It's also a good thing that my mom keeps her old, tried and tested cake recipes and believe me it's really convenient. I followed her original recipe but I confess I made some adjustments specially the cocoa, I only used a little because I don't want my red velvet cuppies to look reddish brown. I want the red to be very vibrant!

Red Velvet Cupcake with Cream Cheese Frosting
This was the first RV cupcake that I baked. I didn't get the "vibrant red" that I wanted to so I still have to tweak the ingredients a little bit to get the color that I desire but of course, I have to make sure that the texture and taste of the cake would still be the same - moist and velvety! 

I was able to bring some of the cupcakes in the office to check if my officemates would like it. I also asked them for any suggestions or if there are any improvements that are needed. And I am happy that they were all pleased and liked it! 

Red Velvet Cake and Cupcakes made specially for my friend/officemate's 30th birthday. And of course, special thanks to my fellow blogger and friend Aidisan for the very cute cupcake tower.

And then friends and co-workers started placing their orders....

and some more.....These were some of the orders made last New Year.
I was able to bake a total of 21 dozen Red Velvet Cupcakes last Christmas and 12 dozen last New Year. 

How bout you guys, do you like Red Velvet Cupcakes?

Sweet Day to you All!
