During late August and until midle of September my family has a rush of birthdays, and famely and friens can show up on the door steps any time for a cup of coffee.
So after spending time this morning in the kitchen, I now have a lot of Red Velvet Cupcakes in my fridge and we are ready for visitors any time.
Today is my youngest son Simen 19th birthday <3 Congratulations!
Red Velvet is designed as a fun tribute on any cake table. Actually it is a very light and mild chocolate cake. So it is entirely up to each one if they want to add the red color to spice them up a bit. The good taste will be the same either way!
