I will try to bake red velvet cupcakes first time in my life I've found this recipe:
I hope it gives the best result. But I have two other questions when cupcakes will be cooked:
First; what filling recipe should I use to fill the cupcakes?
Second; what frosting recipe should I use under the fondant? (I hope I can decorate red velvet cupcakes with fondant :S )
Red Velvet (typically) is always paired with cream cheese frosting, though it really depends on taste. I personally don't like cream cheese so I'd just use buttercream.
follow this cream ifyou dont want a cream cheese frosting. its unbelievable!
Thank you LisaPeps and rb822.
So can I use cream cheese frosting under fondant?
And LisaPeps, would you please send me a link of a buttercream recipe?
Thank you Lisa, I'm going to read all of them now Thanks for the link.
Ahh sorry one more question, what is shortening? We don't have shortening where I live. Is there any substitute for shortening?
and Meringue Powder ???
Shortening is vegetable fat - Trex for UK
Meringue Powder is powdered egg whites - egg albumen powder in UK or just use egg whites depends how concerned you are about salmonella warnings
You can also try a white chocolate buttercream.
