That’s me.  I bake for no good reason.  Well, aside from the fact I occasionally want something of the baked variety, then I have to bake a whole batch of whatever that is, and I’m left with lot of leftover baked things.  Like this cupcake:
Red Velvet Cupcake

Which is a delicious red velvet cupcake with vanilla icing. I found the recipe on Tasty Kitchen ages ago and fully intended to bake the cupcakes for some event, but I’ve not been to any events. Today however, I decided I MUST have a cupcake, so I made a huge mess in my kitchen and ended up with 24 of these little buds of deliciousness. Except now I’ve eaten two and don’t want any more. I shall take some to work tomorrow, I’m sure someone will eat them.

Also: remember last time I posted I mentioned how sick I’ve been?  Well, I am spending most of this week at home (two days of working from home, two days of sick leave) (shut up, baking is working) in an attempt to get better.  It’s only Tuesday and I’m not sure it’s working yet.  Maybe by Friday I’ll be feeling better.  A girl can dream!

p.s. the recipe for the cupcakes made 24.  The recipe for the icing made enough for 12.  What to do?  And don’t say make more icing – I have run out of icing sugar.

    Quickly, eat all the cupcakes without the icing, so then no one will realise you stuffed up.

    Okay, I confess- I do not like cakes, muffins or cupcakes… They call me a freak of nature…. Sigh.

    Hope your eyes are getting better Tracey. Happy ‘work from home’!

    I love cakes, cupcakes, sugar! So, please, if you love to bake, next time I accept cookies, please!!!! Well done, they look lovely and delicious… such a pity I don’t work in the near, since you will take them to work… 🙂 I hope you feel better by tomorrow, really… I really hope so! But you can go on baking, it’s nice! (By the way, I also love to bake!)
