Classic Red Velvet

5 Jun

June 5th, 2011

When the red velvet craze first started, I wasn’t that much of a fan because I thought it was just white cake dyed with red food coloring. In fact, a few of the main ingredients include buttermilk, cocoa powder, red food coloring, and cream cheese frosting.  As I started seeing them in bakeries they eventually grew on me. Plus, I’m a fan of cream cheese frosting. Today, red velvet cupcakes are one of my favorite flavors to bake.

A while ago, I discovered savory red velvet fried chicken at American Cupcake.  Interesting combo and I had to try it. It was boneless chicken covered in a bright red velvet batter, fried to crispiness that left a hint of sweetness. If you are a big red velvet fan and/or love fried chicken, you should check it out.

Red velvet cupcakes will suffice until the day I attempt to make red velvet fried chicken.

      I switch between the Nikon 18-55mm Nikkor zoom and the 50mm 1.8D lenses. I use natural lighting, but today was very gloomy so the pictures turned out a little darker.

      Any tips?
