Red Velvets - Christmas Style
If I had to choose my favourite cupcake, it would be the Red Velvet. I remember my first one, I was in London and it was from the legendary Hummingbird Bakery.
When mum got me my first baking book this summer, It was The Hummingbird Cookbook. I was so excited and with out fail I was in the kitchen making my own batch of Red Velvets. Over time I have added my own bits and taken away from the recipe to make it my own.
This Christmas, I went to the indulgent side and used 70% dark melted chocolate, rather than coco powered, and added my secret ingredient. To decorate them I used two types of red glitter, rather than adding some of the crumbs of the cake back on top, just a simple finishing for my favourite. My taste team (brother and his friends), said that these where the best batch yet.
I had this is with a cup of tea, in my snowman mug of course. Went down a lovely treat!
