This year, Jessica decided to give her coworkers a set of 3 cupcakes. Yesterday's post ("mini cakes") was one of them. With the next cake, she decided to go with a new recipe: red velvet cupcakes.
The cake is a fairly standard red velvet, but without the obscene amount of red dye that most recipes call for.
The red velvet cupcakes were classically combined with cream cheese frosting. Holly berries made out of fondant provided the topper.
The fondant was pressed into a silicone mold to give a true, leafy texture.
As I sit here writing this, I'm having one right now. And I can say they are delicious! (...love that cream cheese frosting...)
