This week we invited some friends out for supper to thank them for helping out last October. We set up the Fondue since we haven’t done that in a while and it’s a lot of fun. You can eat while you talk and not stuff yourself like crazy. The challenge was dessert because one of your friends is living gluten free.

Red Velvet Cake
I don’t know what the hype is about the Red Velvet Cake. It seems to be a big thing on this side of the planet, for whatever reason. For me, it’s a cake with red colour, that’s it.

However, Hazelnut Chocolate Cupcakes were buttermilk free and I had the necessary ingredients: fluffy, fluffy and more fluffiness.
