Hi all,

I will try to bake red velvet cupcakes first time in my life icon_smile.gif I've found this recipe:

http://www.joyofbaking.com/RedVelvetCupcakes.html

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 )

Thanks...

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.

Ahh sorry one more question, what is shortening? We don't have shortening where I live. Is there any substitute for shortening?

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.
