Georgous Cakes - part 5
This week I made some Cappuccino Cupcakes and, as its Guy Fawkes Night on Monday, a Red Velvet Bonfire Cake. The cupcakes were pretty simple to create and came out well. However as the 'icing' is whipped cream I decided to only 'ice' them as needed so the topping can be kept in the fridge and the cupcakes in a tin.
I've not made a red velvet cake before and it was pretty straight forward, but wow it tastes amazing! Think this is my favorite so far. As you want a cone shaped cake you have to cut a bit off to get the right shape. She suggests saving the trimmings for trifle but they didn't last that long. It's then covered in a cream cheese icing and matchmakers. I'm interested to know how it lasts the week.
Cappuccino Cupcakes: These were ok, but the sponges got a little dense towards the end of the week. The cream topping lasted well in the fridge.
Red Velvet Bonfire Cake: This was really tasty but I didn't want too much. Seemed to last well in the fridge although it dried a little.
