Baking (Red Velvet Cupcakes) x Mookata x 49 Seats x Party x Weekly Updates

Hey people!
I'm back for past week updates.
Hehe so i became a baker over the one day holiday. I've mentioned in my previous post that i'm gna share with you my baking experience... so here it is!
I baked some red velvet cupcakes ^^ It doesn't look really appealing (cos i did the topping notttt really nicely hahaha and i did not put little hearts on top :( ) but it tastes really good!
I'm not trying to show off haha i gave 9 of my friends to try them and they said it was delicious hiahia
Some even thought i bought them :$..OK I'M BEING DAMN PROUD NOW HEHE
Anyway the weekly updates will come after baking part, so keep scrolling till the end oki

Firstly, my outfit for yesterday!
Jumper: River Island
Top: Topshop
With messy background at amk muahaha
I am a baker yesterday and i'm gna share with you my secret recipe hehe

Say hi to my pretty red velvet cupcake which looks rly plain without any topping on the cream cheese
(my fail swirl of cream cheese but it's the best part)

Want to know how to bake red velvet cupcakes? I'll show u in 4 steps!
I wrote the amount needed to be added in red & the amount given makes only a dozen of cupcakes (depending on your cupcake mould size)

Ingredients for the Cupcake part (Bottom part):

1. 2 Eggs

 2. 2/3 of cake flour

3. 1 teaspoon of baking powder, baking soda and vanilla essence & 1/2 tablespoon of red food coloring

Without this, there isn't gna be any red velvet hahaha don't add too much cos it's gna make the cake bitter.

4. 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder 
(Any kind of cocoa powder will do but i used the hershey one becos i like hershey chocolates hahaha) ok what nonsense

5. 1/2 cup butter & salt & sugar
(i'm using some korean salt (tryna act cool)... any salt will do)

6. 1 tsp vinegar & 1 cup buttermilk*
(*you can purchase buttermilk from the grocery store but if you are as forgetful as me, you can actually make buttermilk by mixing milk & vinegar and let it stand for 10-15mins)

3 Steps in making Cupcake (Bottom Part)

Step 1: Mix butter & sugar for 3-4 minutes till it appears fluffy. After 3 mins, add the eggs one by one.
It will look something like that after thorough mixing:

Step 2: Add the cake flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.

Step 3: Whisk the buttermilk, vinegar, vanilla essence and red food coloring together in another bowl.

Pour the dry ingredient from Step 2 and the mixture from Step 3 into the batter from Step 1 and start mixing!

End product after mixing:

Cupcake mixture done! Time to place it on the cupcake papers. Easy isn't it? hehe

Time to do the frosting while waiting for the cupcakes to be done!
Frosting ingredients:
1. Butter
2. Cream cheese
3. Vanilla Essence
4. Sugar
Easy peasy, you just mix the butter & cream cheese for 3 mins. After that, add the vanilla essence  and sugar (amount stated in red above)
And you will get this! IT TASTES SO GOOD ALONE.

Pipe them on top of the cupcakes after it's done and here you go!!!!! ^.^
