Red Velvet Cupcakes

I tried a couple of other recipes, in preparation for The Hurricane's birthday party, but I ended up back with Paula Deen's red velvet cupcakes. I increased the cocoa powder to 1 heaped tablespoon per batch and decreased the oil to 1 cup. They came out beautifully! Tender, a good flavour and they turned out of the moulds very obediently.

I drizzled them with melted white chocolate and dusted with edible red glitter. I think the party is sure to be a success!

HH, after seeing the photo I wouldn't rely on Fat Couriers getting the delivery to your door *hic*.

They look superb, Foodcat.

HH - I'm afraid I won't be making rash promises like that again!

Natashya - I hear the party went well, but it was 30 5 year olds, so I went elsewhere!

Arlene - I'm not sure that I am a total convert, but they were quite good.

AYOTG - am I forgiven for the beetroot then?

Deb - thanks. The edible glitter is great!

Comfy - thank you!

Cranky - Fat Couriers are very unreliable!
