Blue Velvet Cupcakes

Blue velvet cupcake

A couple of weekends ago my lovely friend Tayler threw me a baby shower to celebrate the impending arrival of my baby boy, so I could think of no better excuse to make ‘blue velvet cupcakes’ using the same red velvet cake recipe I posted about back in February.

They came out of the oven looking a bluey green colour (rather ugly compared to the lovely rust red of the red velvet cake). I covered them up with some cream cheese icing and dusted on some blue sprinkles, they had the same taste as the cake that I have come to love over the last 10 months, but, when bitten into the blue colour was uneven and not nearly as striking as the red.

I think in the future I will stick to making the cake the way it was intended to be made.


  1. Blue velvet / vomit? Haha, jokes! I do think the title needs a warning though as the first picture makes them seem so pretty and promising :P

  2. I make the red velvet all the while. I looked at the blue and thought hmmmm I will try green and probably black and see what the outcome is. Love to experiment... Red Velvet recipe is a hit with everyone I know. Perfect recipe. Thank you so much....
