Red Velvet delights!

Thought I would have a go at making red velvet cupcakes. I've been meaning to do it for a while. I did have some on my recent trip to New York. I haven't iced them yet so no photos of that. I think they look really good without, though. They're based on a Magnolia bakery recipe although I did make some modifications like halving the recipe and using colour paste rather than liquid dye. To make up for that instead of one and a half eggs (difficult anyway) I used two for extra moisture. I was also a little short with the buttermilk so added a bit of regular milk too.

Finally flowers

Couldn't wait to get flowers into pots in front of our house and yesterday's holiday and good weather gave us that chance.

I also wanted to test out my new macro lens and I'm pretty happy with it!
