Cupcakes and Friends

 

Today it occurred to me how much I love red velvet cupcakes. I called up one of my good friends to see if she would want to come bake with me. I knew she had a great recipe for red velvet cupcakes, and I am always looking for ways to improve my skills.

 

We started by having all of our ingredients ready to go and preheated the oven to 350 degrees.

Next we mixed all of our ingredients for the cake and prepared to put them in the oven. (comment for full recipe). FInally we prepared the icing. After we removed the cupcakes from the oven, we let them cool for about 30 minute before adding the icing.

 

We had a blast baking them and spending time together. It was a win win situation. I got to bake and hang out with a great friend. I love getting to do what I love with such a great person. We spent the afternoon eating our delicious cupcakes and reminiscing on old times together. One of my favorite memories was when we tried to make cupcakes in our college dorm room only to forget we did not have an oven. We ended up going to a friends house at 2AM to bake because we were craving freshly baked cupcakes. I guess I have a bit of a cupcake addiction, but why not be passionate about what you love.

 

We spent a lot of time talking about some of the best quality baking equipment as well. One of the best brands you can use is KitchenAide. They have quality stuff to help you with all your baking needs.  The variety of add ons will help you make the perfect dessert, and the bowl will help keep you from making a big mess. It’s easy to clean afterwards, so you can enjoy cooking without the stress of making a big mess. Not to mention, their products are reasonably priced and they come in a variety of colors.

 

Moral of the story: FInd a friend that’s passionate about baking and have fun together! Sharing an interest with someone is a great way to learn new baking skills and also get to spend time with someone you love!
