Enough with the non-food related posts. Onward to the cupcakes!
Is that some blue batter, or is that some blue batter?
I LOVE red velvet cake, so I was excited to try this recipe from Martha Stewart's Cupcake book that I got for Christmas. Normally I'm not someone who is into all things Martha, but I borrowed this book from the Bloomington Library over the summer and was really impressed by it.
As expected, Martha is very thorough in explaining how to make a zillion types of decorations and how to use 50 kinds of piping tips. The recipes in here seem pretty well tested, too. I've made this recipe as a two layer cake before and it worked perfectly. So hats off to Martha.
The only glitch was that I didn't have any red food coloring. So we used the blue from the Martha Stewart Cake Decorating kit. They looked like a real denim-blue, hence the title of this post.
They were so, so good. I wish I had time to make a batch right now and eat them all myself, but I won't, for several reasons.
We all know Martha has some savvy lawyers, so I'm not going to put the recipe directly in this post. However, a simple Google search led me directly to the same recipe on her website. Click here!
Stay tuned for more cupcakes and other recipes.
