In all honesty, I’m always a bit skeptical of the recipes that come from books from famous bakeries. Do they really share the recipes that they use day in and day out?? Please, someone tell me I’m not the only one who shares this sentiment.
After a little bit of research, I found that red velvet cupcakes appear to be their most popular cupcake, so I started there. I have never had a cupcake from their bakery so I have no idea how this compares to the version they sell. I prepared the recipe exactly by the book, just so I knew what I was working with. I found the recipe to be slightly dry in comparison to the red velvet recipe that I normally use (will share soon), and I felt as though it could really have benefited from the use of buttermilk versus the whole milk that the recipe called for. I did however like the colour that their recipe produced as well as the amount of cocoa powder that they used.
