As promised, one final photo to add to this post:
I haven't done a post with numerous photos in awhile. Apologies, followed by atonement!
Mmmm, red velvet. I'm sick of paying $1.75 at the bakery, so I made a whole bunch myself. I have to wait for my handy helper to frost all these babies, but I couldn't wait to post them (more photos to follow!). I used Paula Deen's recipe, linked here.
Red velvet batter really is red! I don't know if it was the food coloring I bought or what, but I think I may have to cut back on the food coloring next time. This was scary. The batter actually dyed the white paper cups completely red, if you'll take a look at the first photo.
My hand, after copious scrubbing. It's a good thing I tend to clean as I cook, because otherwise I'm sure someone would have seen my kitchen and had me arrested for murdering some kind of small rare mammal with pink blood. I am so not a lady.
The breakfast that fueled this baking frenzy: Heinz English style baked beans, tomatoes, levain, Branston Pickles, and coffee. Yes, English inspired if not quite traditional. Yummy!
