The Red Velvet Cupcake Revolution

So there has been a red velvet cupcake revolution - no seriously. I started baking them what - two weeks ago and can you believe I almost have 1,000.00 in revenue from these cupcakes. If this is ANY indication of where my future is headed - then let's go.

And you know what's funny is that I don't even bake. I HATE baking. It's too methodical and not free flowing - like I tend to be. BUT, the people LOVE these cupcakes.

So, I guess it behooves me to keep the Red Velvet Cupcake Revolution going, right? So...I am.

I'm developing recipes for a few more flavors...wanna hear them?

  • Rum cupcakes
  • Banana pudding cupcakes
  • German chocolate cupcakes
  • Peach cobbler cupcakes
  • Pineapple upside down cupcakes
Can you believe this? Me...the master of Everyday Cookin has now been baking. WOW - well, that's where I've been - lol.

Soon, I'm going to figure out how to ship these suckers online. Wanna place an order?!?! LOL

Seriously folks - it's all about staying true to two things - your passions and your dreams. You have them for a reason. Living out your passion is an art - be creative!

You know why I'm doing the James Brown dance. Red velvet is not my flavor, but I'm glad you're expanding your passions.

The Short (dis)Order Cook said...

Well, of course you are rockin' the cupcakes. They looked great and now everyone wants one.

I think you are meant to do more baking. Bring on those other cupcakes please.

I just made red velvet cupcakes over the weekend. I used Paula Deen's recipe. They were excellent but I had a bowl of icing left over. Any suggestions for all that left over icing and can I freeze it?

Dee said...

Look at all those happy faces eating your cupcakes!

I haven't tried red velvet cupcakes, really must give it a go soon. And those rum cuppies sound fantastic. What would your frosting be?

I am always begging my MIL to bake me a red velvet cake...mmmmm!

Rich Fitzgerald said...

Dude, my wife goes to this place called The Cupcakery. She pays like $2.50 a cupcake and there are probably a good 20 in our freezer. I just think they are okay, but her and the kids love them. They have a chain of those stores in selected cities. You might want to check them out.

There is a lot of money in cupcakes.
