And here is the reason for being at the store. Red velvet cupcakes. Last Friday, Lorraine brought cupcakes in from our office’s favorite bakery. I had red velvet and I’ve been craving it ever since. I was going to make these for Valentine’s Day, but it’s been another brutal week — so I figured there was no point in waiting. So on a whim, I dropped by the store to pick up a few things to make this recipe.
Now that they’re finished, I’m probably prouder of myself than I should be — especially given the fact that no one has tried one. But there’s just something so rewarding about baking something from scratch. Especially for someone without any natural ability to cook whatsoever. I really hope these are edible. Guess we’ll find out. At least I can go to bed feeling good about it.
