Take your cupcake outside.

They photograph better in natural light. They taste better too.

I can't recall if I have ever had a Red Velvet cupcake before. Today, I decided to try and make them from scratch using the recipe from....



The best ever baking book. I also coated them with cream cheese frosting from the above book. They are so red, so tasty, moist and not dense like previous attempts at cupcakes from scratch. Rich, fluffy, and won't be around long.


I also have this...


which is the best ever cookbook. Hands down THE BEST.

Seriously, go to www.amazon.ca and order them both for just under $50, that qualifies for free shipping, don't forget to click on free supersaver shipping. You won't regret it. They tell you the best tools, the best ingredients, the best way to make chewy cookies, orzo, pan-sauces for chicken, and just about everything else. There's pictures, step-by-step photo instructions, tips, and all kinds of good info. It's America's Test Kitchen, they did all the work and perfected the recipes first! You will never need another cookbook, ever!

I'm thinking I need to order a bunch and give them to people for Christmas.

Just in case you are wondering, I ate 2, yes, 2 cupcakes, and I'm not going to sit down for a very long time, I don't want to fall asleep. Besides, somebody has to run the panini press for dinner. Then I'll need a nap.
