If you have been following this blog for the last few months, you’d know that I don’t really follow every recipe it’s exact teaspoon measurements. But since I’ve failed in baking a coloured cake, I’ve gone and reached lengths to include every ingredient and measure everything as precise as possible.
With D’s, help, we managed to spend our early afternoon preparing these wonderful-looking cupcakes. I first found Cupcake Jemma‘s Youtube channel weeks back. Then I came across her Rainbow Cupcakes video. I finally gathered my guts to produce this really-easy-looking cupcake (it definitely isn’t easy).
Probably the most time- consuming thing was making the colours from food colouring and piping the different colours into the muffin moulds.
As you might have already guessed, we didn’t have enough of some colours (may be due to the fact that I did not distribute the batter evenly). But we made the best from the situation.
The muffins turned out great. Cutting a cupcake and getting at least more than one colour in it. I was pleased with our results and we were finally successful!
I wished I had time to make coloured frosting as I was tight on time that afternoon. But I’ll be making more of these in the later future!

For my birthday, I want a colour ombre cake, or something like that. So in preparation, I started experimenting. And from this, I concluded that I’m not good at tweaking recipes, never mind following the recipe.
Please DO NOT bake if you’re missing an ingredient. I learned the hard way.
I wanted my cake to have chocolate flavour and it wasn’t a good idea.
What happened to my kitchen skills? I had trouble separating the whites from the yolks.
Adding colour to the recipe when the mixture was brown-coloured because of the coco powder.
Whisked the egg whites too much.
Added the whites to the wet mixture.
The colours aren’t the greatest.
This was a disaster. The cake was mushy and not light or fluffy (which an angel cake is supposed to be). It hardly rose (in height). I am never doing this again withOUT a proper recipe.
I found this Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip recipe on Pinterest. You can find basically anything on Pinterest..especially recipes, if you just don’t know what to make for that special occasion.
Many of the ingredients that this recipe calls for can be found at home (for me, at least). But if not, they can be found at the local grocery store.
I mixed all the wet ingredients together.
Then, incorporated the dry into the wet. (I cut back on the sugar, as I find the recipes tend to be really sweet. So I used a total of 1 and 1/2 cups of sugar.) And added the chocolate chips.
The recipe makes 24 cookies, but I used a standard ice cream scoop for even sized-cookies. And that made 10 large-even cookies.
Because the cookies were bigger, I baked them for 14 minutes.
Why I recommend this recipe?
1. The ingredient are plain and simple
2. It doesn’t take long to prepare and bake
3. These cookies can be made and brought to a party/ event on the same day, if you’re having trouble finding something to bring
