Today's lovely thing actually was lovely last week - I just haven't had a chance to tell you about it yet!!
Red Velvet Cupcakes, yum! I keep seeing the recipe or photos of these lovely looking cakes and think that they must be super complicated and way beyond my ability. Well, I'm pleased to say that once I'd worked out how I could get buttermilk without having to search for a shop that sells it (see solution below) they were dead simple and SO effective. And they were so tasty, they were gone even before the icing was made!
Put 1 tablespoon lemon juice or white vinegar into a measure. Fill to one cup level with whole milk. Leave for 5 minutes. Eh voila! Much less hassle than trying to remember which supermarket sells it. They certainly don't have it at the Coop in Larkhall, which means I'm pretty scuppered and homemade will win for me everytime!
If you're lucky, I might make some for you one day!
PS The dress is almost done, but I can't post anymore photos until after the wedding. It is a secret after all! Sorry!
