Slice of Life Challenge Entry #20
I finally found myself with a free Monday night and I didn’t know what I should do with all the extra time, so I decided to finally bake my red velvet cupcakes and make cream cheese frosting. Well, little did I know how messy and long it was going to take, as I found myself baking until 11pm!
I didn’t have a mixer and I had to mix everything by hand which took a bit longer. Plus my small oven could only bake six cupcakes at a time! However, despite my stained red hands and messy counter space, I finally finished baking my cupcakes. The frosting didn’t turn out too well though. It tasted good, but the consistency was too soft. I think I over mixed it! I wanted to get a harder and thicker consistency. I didn’t have enough confectioner’s sugar, so it was a more creme color than white. So I decided to not put the frosting on the majority of the cupcakes. Other than that, they still tasted pretty delicious! I’m excited to bring them to the orphanage tonight. It’s my student’s birthday today! 🙂
