I think Olga of Sassy Radish is a genius. Why? Because she pinpointed the problem with Magnolia's red velvet cupcakes: the vanilla icing. With her Red Velvet Cupcakes, Olga opted for the Magnolia cake recipe but created a traditional crown of cream cheese to establish red velvets as the king of all cupcakes. She used an entire bottle of red food coloring—how's that for royal blood?
Olga is adamant that homemade cake is as easy as purchased mixes. In her words, "The whole thing was a cinch—and a delicious cinch at that."
