Pinterest Picks: Red Velvet

If there's one thing I've learnt in Islamabad is that Pakistanis take their Red Velvets very seriously. The red velvet cupcake is a staple in all the good bakeries around town. Red velvet cake is the most asked and the colour red, the most sought after.

I found this rather strange. You see, I don't really understand the whole hullabaloo about the red velvet. I mean, for a chocolate cake it's got hardly any cocoa and for a regular buttermilk sponge its got too much chocolate. So how does that even work?

But how it redeems itself is with the gorgeous cream cheese frosting. I mean, afterall, this buttery, sweet-salty-tangy icing is perhaps one of the best finds in the world.

And while people limit themselves to making just red velvet cakes and cupcakes, I think there's a whole world out there of the unexplored. At least that's what Pinterest tells me. So for this month's Pinterest Picks, I've picked out 10 ways you make the Red Velvet sexy.
