Nigella's Red Velvet Cupcakes and Tate & Lyle Sugars

Red Velvet Cupcakes


A little while ago I was emailed and asked if I would like a sample of some of Tate and Lyle’s Fairtrade sugars. I have used this brand for years, and love the quality of their products – so ’m very happy feature them here.

The batter This is the sample package I received, Icing Sugar, Caster Sugar, Fondant Icing sugar and Granulated Sugar. The only one I’ve not used before is the fondant one, but I have a friend who has had great success with it, and I’m looking forward to trying it. Thank you to Tate & Lyle for my samples.

Sugars and Baked Cupcakes I chose to make Red Velvet Cupcakes from Nigella Lawson’s Kitchen, Recipes from the Heart of the Home. This is not the first version of red velvet I’ve made, but it’s the one I’m going to stick with. I love it when I find a ‘best of its kind’ recipe, and this is certainly that for me. This has been requested as a bithday cupcake already! If Nigella cooks this on her TV programme I’ll edit this post and link the recipe for you. It used some of my Caster Sugar and Icing Sugar very nicely thank you.

Half frosted Anyhow Tate and Lyle have a great website here and a new Facebook Page here called We Love Baking, which looks good – I’ve ‘Liked’ it for sure.
Ready to eat!

Those cupcakes turned out gorgeous. I've never made red velvet cake or cupcakes but I'm definitely going to try Nigella's recipe.

Red Velvet cake is always a winner, everyone loves the redness and then the surprise of the sweet creaminess. Lovely recipe Nigella, again!

These look exquisite. I wasn't going to buy the new Nigella book...but can you ever have too many cook books...?
