I just made my very first cake from scratch a few weeks ago (you may recall that adventure) so I'm definitely not a professional cake maker/decorator, but I certainly love to eat cake, so I said "sure thing!" Plus, I can't turn down a challenge.
I did some browsing on Pinterest and here are some ideas:
Do you all know me well enough now to know that I'll probably always start with red velvet cake? Not yet? Well, I probably always will. Red velvet cupcakes = my favorite. Unfortunately, one of my sisters is allergic to red food dye & chocolate and this would be a double whammy. I guess I could split the batch.
A nice look to a Christmas cake--I like.
Aren't these fancy and fun? Something like this would be cool.
So these don't look like cake, but they are--one bite is all it takes. I think these are really fun, but I probably won't go this route.
Now, this is my kind of cupcake--a giant cupcake. I saw one of these pans in Bed Bath & Beyond last night and I was really tempted to buy it. Maybe I'll get this one!
So many choices! Do I go a traditional route, or do I spice things up and make cupcakes? Hmm...I'm not completely sure. Whatever I decide, I'll be sure to share pictures of the final product with you all.
What do you think?
