Cupcakery 101: Red Velvet

My love of baking and cupcakes stared when Sophia (my daughter) turned 1 year old. Six months before her actual birthday I started to read blogs and forums about preparing for a 1st birthday. I’ve ran into a lot of blog post of lavish 1st Birthday Parties. Seeing those beautiful details like the party favors, the decorations, etc. is so heart warming and so inspiring. A child’s birthday party will never be complete without cake and cupcakes. There’s just so many beautiful and well crafted cupcakes and cakes online. Most of it are customize. So everything and any designs are possible but of course it comes with a price tag. And so i was thinking, why not bake my own. I wanted the Red Velvet Cupcake. So I did my homework. After spending hours in the internet to find the perfect Red Velvet Recipe, i found Joyofbaking.com. It is a very good site. It has complete recipes from cakes, cupcakes, cookies, etc. This is the exact link for the Red Velvet Cupcake Recipe im using http://joyofbaking.com/RedVelvetCupcakes.html . And the good thing about this site is, it has a video tutorial! :))
I got hooked with baking last year until people were asking if they can order my cupcakes. I was so psyched about it! It was very exciting making cupcakes from scratch and seeing the finish product is a real HAPPINESS with all the frosting on top of it. I’ve watched a lot of youtube tutorials and did a lot of research to achieve the perfect cupcake and frosting. It’s the frosting that i was having difficulty. I couldn’t make the swirl stand. Thanks to forums and video tutorial i found ways to make it look like a real cupcake.hehe 
I’ve been “bakeless” for 8 months now and i kinda miss baking. Soon i will bake again and will make it more beautiful and “yummier”.
