The Future Decorator II: Red Velvet Lust

So, it’s Thursday again!! Yep, time for my Wilton decoration class!! I’ve yet to bake today’s cake; however, I first wanted to update on last weeks cupcakes.
I made red-velvet cupcakes, to be honest; it’s the first time I made red-velvet anything. They came out good, although a bit dry for my taste. (No one seemed to notice though!) Yet, making them seemed very fun, specially the part you add, vinegar and baking soda… elementary science fair and culinary combined… I loved the coloring and the smell as it slowly baked in the oven. Yummm, lovely!

Then I frosted them with the usual butter cream frosting, and as the hours began to get near 6:30 PM, I got really exited. I also prepared frosting in three different colors, off-pink, black, and plain pink. All ready!

Mom and me climbed in the car, and decorated our heads off!! Things learned flowers, shells, and free-fall borders. Then our cupcakes could be topped with clowns. So, cute!! And after the class, the cupcakes and me bobbled our way home, to a cup of coffee and talc about next weeks class! Next Thursday I’ll dutifully post about tonight’s endeavors. P.S. It’s time to sign up for Course II!!! Yeah!!

I've never eaten red velvet cake - closest I have come is the armadillo groom cake in Steel Magnolias! But your cake batter looks gorgeous. I am amazed at the glorious colour!
