Giant Red Velvet Cupcake
Today was my last day at my current job (sob sob). It's really sad to be leaving as I've had such a fantastic year. The team have been absolutely brilliant and I've learnt so much from everyone. Don't worry, no long blubbery oscar worthy speech but cake and goodies :)
So I had to finish with a 'bang' well a cake of course and what better than a giant red velvet cupcake! I seem to make them for leaving do's and birthdays (giant chocolate caramel cupcake, giant strawberries and cream cupcake, giant chocolate cupcake) but you have to agree that they do have a certain 'wow' factor.
I've used my standard red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting recipe from the hummingbird bakery.
I also made my entry for this month's we should cocoa challenge which was a surprise hit. It disappeared even quicker than the cake!! Check back later to find out what I made.
It has been a busy baking week for me as it was my last week at work so I thought I'd push the boat out and managed to bake a total of 12 items, some of which are repeat bakes. I will try to update my blog every day/alternate day this week to keep up.
On a final note, I got the loveliest leaving present - a V&A fine china 2 tier cake stand!!! I'm soooooooo excited and happy as I've always wanted one of these and now I have one!! Thank you everyone.
