Bank Holiday Baking.

Hello everyone,

I am sorry I haven't posted in a while, life has been a little quite whilst I am still recovering from having my leg cast off, however, I am nearly there and am looking forward to getting out more and more. 

As it has been a bank holiday weekend, I thought I would make the most out of it and do some baking, trying out a recipe I have never used. My sister, Naomi, has used it before though and she does it well. I am talking about the Hummingbird Bakery's Red Velvet Cupcakes. I have bought these cupcakes from the bakeries around London and they are divine!

Here's some of the baking from today:

I found the recipe quite simple to follow, however I think I used the wrong food colouring so, these red velvets, aren't red. I found the recipe for the icing did not work well, maybe this was due to me using a handheld whisk instead of a stand-alone mixer? Let me know if you can make a good cream cheese frosting :) 

The finished product. A brown, chocolatey, yummy, red velvet cupcake, perfect with a glass of wine to finish off a lovely bank holiday weekend.

Bye lovelies
