Baked again: Red Hot Velvet Cake with Cinnamon Buttercream

Page 53: Baked New Frontiers in Baking

I got really tempted and made the Red Hot Velvet Cake from the book.

Well they were nice… But I probably won’t do this recipe again. I guess I went wrong somewhere but I liked the cupcakes.. not loved them. 

The frosting was a real winner though. The pistachios were my personal touch.




They tasted good no doubt, but I would really really really recommend the green tea frosted almond cupcakes from the same book. Those were a dream.

Messing around with a chocolate cake

I got inspired by Bakerella’s cake pops and tried my own variation.

Unfortunately I am not as artistic as she is and neither do I have the patience to cut shape and frost those tiny cupcakes I did something simpler.

I took some store bought chocolate cake and added the frosting to it. Mashed it about (eww, couldn’t help but feel gross since there was just too much unavoidable cake touching and mashing)

I added some orange colored fondant in the center and sandwiched two equal sized cake portions and sealed the sides to form a ball.

When sliced it looked nice. But tasted kind of like a semi cooked cake even though I knew it was a cooked cake and the mushiness was on account of the frosting and mashing. Anyways I had fun.


Did not expect too much luck on Friday the 13th anyways
