Trend Alert: Red Velvet

So  when I hear "red velvet" the first thing that comes to my mind are cupcakes, however  it also is a pretty big fashion trend right now, and I am currently trying to find the perfect  red velvet blazer.  Mainly because  it makes me think of magic shows and movie theaters ... but it also happens to look wicked cool with a vintage tee and oxfords:  

But of course I wouldn't mention cupcakes without sharing my fave recipe with you:

What you need (for 24 servings): 

 2 1/2 cups  flour 
1 1/2 cups sugar 
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp white vinegar
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
1 cup  buttermilk
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
red food coloring

Preheat your oven to 350°F/175°C. Mix the dry ingredients in a large bowl,  stir the other  ingredients together in another bowl, and add the dry mix. Add the food coloring, and fill the finished  batter into your cupcake forms (fill them only 3/4).  Bake the cupcakes for 20 - 25 minutes, let them cool down and decorate them with your favorite frosting. My favorite way to do it is to mix cream cheese with a tiny dash  of lemon juice and powdered sugar, but the possibilities are endless ;)  

Peace, Love and Sunshine
