Cocoa Powder and Red Food Colouring "Paste," this was added to the cake batter.Anyway, I won't tell you the recipe. I think it was a ridiculous take on the basic vanilla sponge method. It even told me to add a mixture of bicarb of soda and white vinegar (and we all know what happens with that, we all used them in some sort of volcano project at school). Anyways, they do look good, I'll give myself that. But I won't be trying them again until I taste an amazingly good Red Velvet cupcake, possibly from a shop. I'm sure it won't take long for the UK to cotton on to this American craze.
The pretty pattern the cocoa paste made once swirled with the cake batter.Oh and one of my best friend's, Nikki, bought me a little present the other day - my new apron! How cute is that?!
