Red velvet cupcakes


So it’s almost the end of January already! Usually January drags on for me but this year it has gone relatively quickly.

Since Valentine’s Day is coming up soon I thought I would bake something for that. So since I have never made red velvet cakes before so I thought I would try it.

So, I for some reason used to think that red velvet cakes were chocolate and vanilla cakes coloured red with cream cheese icing. They are not, and I don’t even know how I didn’t know because I have had them before!! Well for those of you that like me didn’t know the cake is a chocolate and vanilla cake coloured red but also has buttermilk in it as well as Bicarbonate of soda. * I actually didn’t have any buttermilk so I used milk mixed with lemon and it worked fine.

So I used Cupcake Jemma’s recipe, I don’t know if any of you know her but she has a youtube channel and posts some recipes and this one was really simple and was really delicious. * I used 1/2 quantities for the cakes and 1/3 quantities for the icing (and I still had spare icing!) Here is the link to the video: 


So here are the pictures!!

Have a nice day! Please tell me in the comments if any of you are interested in baking too!
