Red Velvet Cupcakes

I had seen Red Velvet cupcakes and cakes in the shops but had never tried them.
I bought the ingredients and the red food colouring. It has to be noted that buying a red food colouring from Asda is not enough to colour the cakes a bright red. I had to add lots of liquid, the mixture almost curdled and then when baked they came out a browny colour instead!

The key is a red food paste – only a tiny amount is needed and the colour produced is amazing. Et voila!!
