Can't get enough & a birthday

My sister ordered some Red Velvet Cake from a reputable bakery near my place. Since she fell ill, I had to pick up the cakes for her before it closed for the day during Christmas eve.

She offered to share the smaller cake with me as she doubt she can eat it since she is sick.

She loves the texture as it is light and easy to eat. As I didn't have very good experience with the last Red Velvet Cake recipe that I made, I wonder whether how the texture should be. After tasting this reputable version, I was determined to get the texture next time.

Since today is my hubby’s birthday and seriously I don’t know what else to buy for him after being married to him for 19 years, a simple man he is! So I baked him Red Velvet Cupcakes instead. A chance for me to see whether the recipe I wanted to try will live up to the reputable ones.


I am pleased to say that the texture is nearly close and it went really well with the cream cheese frosting. Everyone agreed that it was good, except that my son is a not a fan of cream cheese had his opted out.

Happy Birthday my dear.
