Dessert is my favorite part of a meal. While I don't often have a dessert with my meals, parties allow me to go all out! When I hosted a special engagement party recently, one of my requirements was good ol' Red Velvet. It's a southern tradition. When I found An Empty Plate on Etsy, one of my favorite sites, I was in luck. Not only did she send a generous amount for our event, she also lives in Georgia. She had to get it right! And she did, down to the very last crumb. Light and moist, intense flavor, and a brilliant red cake. It was the perfect combination of ingredients to make the ultimate cupcake. The frosting was thick and rich, but not overly sweet. You can pipe it on thick and not want to scrape half of it off. I used the bag that was sent, but I inserted a tip to make the frosting come out a little neater. Regardless of how you pipe it, one thing stays the same. An Empty Plate can be a dangerous thing. Call your friends and neighbors or you'll be all alone, looking down at an empty plate before you know it.
