The Brisbane-based Red Velvet Bakery was behind these tasty-looking creations, and the friendly peeps talked me through their cakey creations. On offer were Choc Fudge, Red Velvet, Raspberry & Passionfruit Meringue, Carrot Cake, Sticky Toffee, Cookies & Cream, Rocky Road, and not just plain old vanilla but Rainbow Vanilla flavours.
These guys also cater to various diets with Vegan Carrot, and Gluten Free & Vegan Chocolate flavours on offer. The cake toppers were beautifully made and were also available for purchase separately for any budding bakers out there.
Staring at these cup cakes could only satisfy my curiosity so much though, what was really needed was a taste test. As I was on my way to do a market round-up on radio, I thought I'd grab some mini cupcakes to share around the studio.
I initially went for the mini Red Velvet and mini Rainbow Vanilla, but was advised that Carrot Cake was a particular specialty of theirs, so I did a swapsie and walked away with a couple of those to compliment the Red Velvet instead, and they rocked!
When buying mini cupcakes, there's always a bit of a bit concern that they could be a bit dry as their petite size means they cook a whole lot faster than their regular-sized cousins, but these mini cupcakes from the Red Velvet Bakery were moist and divine.
The red velvet had a rich chocolatey taste to them just as they should, and the little carrot cakes were super soft and almost melted in your mouth. I'm thinking I'll have to head back for some of their other flavours...
