Recently, I’ve been making a lot of cupcakes. While I was still looking after my parents’ house, before the barbecue, I made these Red Velvet Cupcakes. It was my second time using one of Amy’s recipes, and this time also didn’t disappoint!

Even the batter looked good. Lots (almost two bottles) of red food coloring!

They came out of the oven looking like this:

And, here they are, complete with cream cheese frosting:

Then, the following week, I helped Kim make Miniature Strawberry Cupcakes (with strawberry frosting) for her potluck using a recipe from picky cook. They turned out really well. Yum.

Tonight, I ruined a batch of Original NestlĂ©® Toll House® Chocolate Chip Cookies by adding just a little bit too much baking soda. They still look edible, though:

Next up, at Wysz‘s request, Cheeseburger Cupcakes. Get excited, coworkers.

    You forgot to mention that you also ruined the cookies by positioning the batter too close together and by smooshing a few of them when you were rotating the pans/taking the pans out of the oven :(|)

    Yummy! Thanks

  3. Amy says:

    What’d you think of the Red Velvet? Awesome, right? So that’s what the batter looks like when you actually use all of the food coloring! :)

  4. Nelson says:

    Yeah, awesome! Thanks for the recipe, again. I did notice they were more red than yours, haha. Kind of scary.

  5. Amy says:

    Yeah! I guess the red coloring isn’t as scary as green #2 or whatever it is they put in Mountain Dew though. :)
