A long Hiatus and then a Red Velvet Cake

“You're only human. You live once and life is wonderful so eat the damn red velvet cupcake!”

― Emma Stone

This is my first post since June. My longest hiatus ever on this blog.
I will not elaborate on the reasons why- But the fact is I am back on this blog- not sure for how long, or how consistent I will be, but I am definitely going to try.
Amongst the various other things that have happened, a lot of baking and cooking surely did. This post is special- especially after the hiatus, but then it was celebratory and also made me push my boundaries a bit.
The red velvet cake was done as a part of the celebratory cakes; this time for the mother-in-law. A lot of red, a hint of gold, this one was quite appropriate.

The recipe was adapted from the 2 baking goddesses.
For the cake, Nigella's recipe here

And for the cream cheese frosting, Martha Stewart's recipe here.
For all those who shy away from this very popular, seemingly complicated cake, It is one of the simplest ever, leading to astounding results. Do try. After all, we are only human and cake is just one of those things worth living for.
