I ♥ Red Velvet Cupcakes

Ok, I confess, the title of this post is a bit of a lie.  I don't really love red velvet cupcakes but it would have sounded stupid to say " I eh red velvet cupcakes".  Despite their ever growing popularity I don't really get what all the fuss is about.  Yeah, they look cool with the unusual color and all but I suspect it's the frosting that's the real star.  Who doesn't love the cream cheese frosting?

I made these cupcakes for two friends at work who's birthdays are a week apart in February.  Seemed appropriate to decorate them in a Valentine's theme, red being the signature color and all.

My introduction to this cake was from that classic tear jerker of a chick flick, Steel Magnolias.  Growing up in California I'd never heard of red velvet before.  Apparently it's a southern  specialty.  The groom's cake featured in the film was shaped like an armadillo, with drab gray frosting and blood red velvet cake inside.   When they cut in to it  it looked they were performing surgery.  How's that for a visual? Oh well, it's still one of my favorite movies.  Whenever it's playing on tv, normally TBS,  I have to stop what I'm doing and watch it.   It never gets old. 

Some of the best lines I know are from that movie and I've found myself using them every now and then:
  • "If you don't have anything nice to say come sit by me"
  • "My colors are blush and bashful"
  • "..looks like two pigs fighting under a blanket.."
  • "..what is this in my Frigidaire?

  4. Thanks for the article, I would also love to try these velveteen cakes. But unfortunately I don't have a mixer. Now I am reading alibaba reviews to understand whether it is possible to order equipment there, because I do not have access to a store in my city right now.
