Even though I have a very big sweet tooth, cake is not my thing. I hardly finish one serving of cake at a time. Hubby also usually won’t go beyond a piece of cake exception to this cake๐Ÿ˜„!! So I usually wait for very special Occassion to bake something like this!Mini Red velvet cake recipeAll thanks to my friend Rayida, who is a hands down home baker and her cake pictures inspired me a-lot. (I didn’t get a chance to taste her cakes yet!!). When I went home last time, she pushed me to attend a one day baking workshop, it was a good demo and got more idea on the area where I was least experienced. So for new year, I thought to bake a big fat cake to share with my neighbors and friends. But I couldn’t bake due to our short trip to Delhi around new year, which was unplanned!

On the day of New year, hotel where we stayed kept a counter with alot of pastries and cakes. I told hubby I couldn’t bake as I planned….let us indulge in some sweet treat here. so we bought one red velvet cake slice. After putting first spoon in my mouth,I was like “whether to cry or laugh”….ohh god, cake was tooo dry and tasteless….. how can a prestigious hotels serve these kind of cakes??!! totally disappointed with them ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ….. Mini Red velvet cake recipeComing back to Tashkent, I decided to try red velvet cake….. in a miniature form, and anything miniatures, I feel they are the cutest!!! They are so easy and convenient to serve as well ….aren’t they??? I am so happy that I did try them….. they were sooooooo delicious and he had one, two and asked for the third serving at the same go ๐Ÿ˜„!!! Me, who is not a cake person had half batch of them…. shhhh ๐Ÿคซ….. We had them after breakfast, lunch and dinner as well ๐Ÿ˜‰…..not joking guys, we really did!!!

    I really like the portion for this cake idea! Smaller is better in my opinion (which is not shared by all Americans, to be sure). This is perfect for a holiday buffet too! Thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ’•
