Ask me anything, please!
I ♡ Cooking & Baking. Let's fill the world with some mouth-watering delicacies that will make you drool over your screen.
This is my second post for the Red Velvet cupcakes because my earlier post didn’t give justice to how good-looking and tasty these cupcakes are!
For those of you who don’t know what a Red Velvet is, here’s the rundown:
- smooth in texture compared to other cupcakes
- it’s freakin’ chocolate!!
The red coloring was just to cover up the chocolate-y-ness of the appearance because there are a lot of chocolate cakes out there.. this one cupcake just wants to be mysterious :P
I kinda forgot to bring my electric mixer so just used a spatula to mix it, but the texture didn’t quite get to where I wanted. Note to self: DON’T FORGET THE ELECTRIC MIXER!
Well, I want to upgrade to a Kitchen Aid Artisan Series (read more - scroll down)… but not now, I’ll need to save up for that first! :)
Notice the liner cups, I only filled it 2/3 full. Always like that!
I always enjoy watching the cake rise up. It’s pretty entertaining! Haha! xD
Of course, after the first batch I just had to taste it. Yummy! :)
Made 1 dozen. They look like an army of Reds! You should be scared because they’ll shove themselves down your throat haha! xD
Skewered a hole on the center of the cupcake and used a piping tool to fill them with what else?! Of course, Cream Cheese Frosting! Mmmmmm!
About that Kitchen Aid Artisan Series Stand Mixer, here’s how it looks like:
I like the “Ice” and “Pistacchio” colors better compared to the dozens more available. I think the red version is so over-rated and the shades of different black is just too plain. Why would I pick something common from a wide variety of, in lack of a better term, happy colors..?
It also has 3 paddle attachments: whisk, mix, knead.
Can carry up to 5 quarts and it also has a protector so that the batter won’t splat all around the kitchen.
Did I mention this the heavy duty? It’s the top-of-the-line stand mixers out there. I think all bakers should have one in their kitchen. If you can’t afford it, save up and really try to buy one someday! It’s gonna be so worth it and it’ll help you save time in your baking because while it mixes, you just pour in the ingredients. And you don’t have to pause and scrape the sides all the time because the mixer attachment covers up the whole bowl as it goes around and around.
These 2 are on my top list! But of course I’ll just have to choose 1 in the end right? xD
Cooking a carrot is better-tasting than using it for baking sweet bites.
Grate. Grate. GREAT.
After cooking 1 pancake, it didn’t taste as promising, like there was too much baking powder and it was bland. It’s as if there was something missing so I just added 1/4 cup of cocoa powder, thus, Chocolate Carrot Pancake.
Mix. Fold. Pour.
Topped it with honey.
Not really one of the best I’ve done but it was okay. It was consumed by people around the house in less than 30 minutes! Wow! I was expecting it to last 2-3 days but , yeah.. Haha!
