Not So Spooky Red Velvet Cupcakes

Hello everyone! Sorry for being MIA for a while. Long story short I’ve been to take life day by day for the past two weeks because of personal problems. I feel a bit silly because things could be so much worse and I have no right to complain and it’s nothing I haven’t dealt with before, but I had to take time off to be alone and sort myself out. Anyway I’m going to be fine and I’m planning to post more about all that’s been going on sometime next week, but for now I wanted to share something fun for the upcoming Halloween weekend and Dia de Los Muertos.

I really can’t take any credit for this recipe as I simply went and snagged it off allrecipes. Honestly, if you’ve learnt anything from reading my posts by now you know I am hopeless at baking and will forever need to look up recipes for any dessert I want to make. Haha, I can only take credit for thinking red velvet cupcakes would be all too appropriate for some spoopy themed desserts!

Let’s Cook: Zoella’s Funfetti Cupcakes

One of my favorite YouTuber’s, Zoella, recently posted a video of her recipe for funfetti cupcakes. So of course I decided I had to try them out – which was awesome because I LOVE cupcakes and terribly daunting because I’m awful at baking. So I started where any reasonable person would start and wrote down the recipe. After which, I quickly realized all the measurements were done to UK standards so I had to convert them before I started baking. This was an oddly cathartic process because literally all I was doing was typing numbers into google for conversion, but the process of doing so made me feel super smart! So that’s a thing I guess. Next I checked that I had all the ingredients and bought any that were missing. I also had to buy icing tips because I haven’t ever iced anything – ever. So yes, I suppose this also present the perfect opportunity for me to learn how to ice… things. To say the least I was skeptical, but it turns out even if I had completed botched these in the beauty department it would have all been okay because they taste incredible!
