So this afternoon I've been ransacking the kitchen cupboards and cooking up a treat for Valentines day tomorrow. Love them or hate them, Red Velvet cupcakes couldn't be more appropriate for this time of year and they're super simple to make!

You will need: 100g butter, 100g sugar, 2 eggs, 100ml milk, red food colouring, 250g flour, 10g cocoa powder

Just cream the butter and sugar together, add in the eggs and whisk. Mix enough of the red food colouring with the milk to turn it bright red and add half to the mixture. Then just add in the flour and cocoa podwer, mix again and add the rest of the milk. Bake at 180°c for 20-25 minutes depending on the size of your cupcake cases, and voila! A Valenties treat. I cheated and used ready made vanilla icing but you can make your own if you're a real baking queen! The rose pattern is so simple too, just make thin circles from the outside in with a piping bag, then start again from the inside and repeat untill it starts looking something like a flower.

Ps. I promise beauty related posts will resume soon. I'm a lazy, cake making blogger!
