Up until 4 hours back, I was even consciously aware of the presence of the red velvet cake/cup cake in the world. Like any other Saturday afternoon, I was fiddling with the laptop and came across this video about ‘Re inventing the cupcake‘, based on this nice female with a ‘cupcakery‘ in New York. Needless to say, the moment I laid my eyes on the gorgeous cupcake she was baking, I knew I had to try it.
Like a tune which is playing in your head on loop the entire day, the image of the cupcake was flashing before my eyes every few seconds. Scanning through the recipe, I realized I could actually pull it off before the sun sets, and before my family wakes up from their ‘Saturday – post lunch – fish curry and rice’ slumber.
Terribly sorry for the ones who don’t stay nearby and can’t come over, and bite into the awesomeness this is. The red colored cupcake is a delight to look at, the subtle taste of dark cocoa which hits you at the very first bite, is very gratifying ; and the huge blob of chocolate frosting on the top is just plain sinful.
Look how red!
So, yes. That. 🙂
P.S- I mean. Seriously. These things are a pain to carry out of the house with the roads that we have. The frosting gets absolutely ruined. So I mean, call. And come over won’t you? And stop threatening me!
Yes, Samata, I mean you. 😛
