I’m not much of a baker. Not because I can’t do it or don’t like to do it, but because having baked goods around the house is a little dangerous for me. I tend to want to eat them all at one sitting.
Yesterday, however, I hosted a brunch for some friends and took the opportunity to make and bake some of my favorite foods. I also used it as an excuse to bake something I’ve never tasted but have wanted to for a long time: red velvet cake.
More specifically, red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting:
This is the recipe I used:
If you’re ever looking for an easy recipe that packs a lot of punch for your effort–these cupcakes might be the answer. They are seriously decadent and the frosting, my god, the frosting. I could take a bath in it, it’s so good.
Which brings me back to why I never bake anything.
