Cupcake Tour of America – San Diego part 2

I’d all but given up on finding a cupcake shop in San Diego (I’m sure they exist, we just didn’t have the time), until on our last night I spied red velvet cupcake on the menu of the restaurant we were at – Claim Jumper. Yay! I ordered one to take home. The container squashed the pretty icing, but who was I to complain!
I tucked into the cupcake late that night, but I was sadly disappointed. It was dense and oily, without much flavour. The red wasn’t as brilliant as the artificially-coloured recipe I use, which would have been OK if the texture was “velvety”. If that cupcake had been my introduction to red velvet I would have decided I didn’t like it, and probably never tried to bake it myself. Lucky that wasn’t the case!

  1. Ditto, that Claim Jumper cupcake is no better than something you would buy at Ralph’s.
