Red Velvet Cake Redux

So I (totally cheated) bought some store-bought red velvet cupcakes on a whim. After being thrown in my shopping bag, this is how they made it home.

Apparently I’m not the only one having trouble with slippery frosting.

I’ll forgive them for that since I couldn’t do better, not to mention my haphazard self-check-out bagging, but let’s see…

Texture: kind of dry, definitely not moist
Taste: A little off, chemically… red dye taste?

An expensive reminder of why I have the rule I can only eat junk food I make myself. It’s easy to resist store-bought when I know I can bake better.

(Except for Starbucks’ mini peanut butter cupcakes… so, so, so good… and less calories than a slice of banana bread.)
