In celebration of 4th of July, my cousin Cha and I made red velvet cupcakes. Or rather: "Blue(berry), White, and Red (Velvet)" cupcakes. Tee hee hee.
I had a much better, less redder experience with red velvet this time around (we only put half a teaspoon of red food gel into these babies).
My cousin preferred red sugar crystals for decorating:
"Aww, yours are cute. They're rustic and homey!"
"Hey, Irene always uses 'rustic' whenever she messes up on something."
"Rustic" or not, they were mighty tasty. And not frightening in the slightest. REJOICE!
