      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      If you are using a Thermomix® TM6 measuring cup with your Thermomix® TM5:
      For cooking (simmering) at temperatures of 95°C or above (200°F), the simmering basket should always be used instead of the TM6 measuring cup, as the TM6 measuring cup fits tightly in the lid. The simmering basket rests loosely on top, is steam-permeable, and also prevents food spatter from the mixing bowl.

Tip 1: During warmer summer months, you may need to cover and refrigerate icing for a few hours to thicken before using.


Tip 2: When icing with cream cheese frosting, fill up the piping bag a little bit at a time, as the heat from your hands melts it and changes the texture.

    Light and fluffy and quite delicious!

    When my son asked for cupcakes at work the next day I searched and found this recipe. They were simple to make and oh so yummy. I already had red velvet color paste which I didn't need anywhere near the amount suggested here. Very nice and will cook again.Smile
