Red Velvet Profiteroles

Jump to recipe

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, these Red Velvet Profiteroles are delightful, vibrant, and delicious idea to treat yourself and your beloved.

Today I am going to keep this very short and classy. Again. However, I am not doing this because I am being busy/tired/frozen, etc. I am embarrassed. I am not happy about the pictures of these Red Velvet Profiteroles. When I made it a couple of weeks back, we happened to have so unfortunate weather, rainy and gloomy, that I didn’t get almost any decent light (As the result, I literally couldn’t handle ISO. I am bad at this anyway). Certainly, I could have moved the photo session to the next day, but Andrey looked suspicious having checked them few times. I had some solid grounds to believe they would not survive for another day.

Besides, I kind of like the ambiance here despite the grainy images. Also, the profiteroles although not being perfect, look quite cute, don’t they? Finally, these Red Velvet Profiteroles are the way too delicious (and fan dessert!) to hide from you. Afterall, this is Valentine’s day, so I am supposed to give you some love.

As for the dessert itself, I am proud of the result. Although I used a basic recipe for choux pastry incorporated just some coloring and cocoa powder, it looks there aren’t too many similar ideas on the Internet (I’ve checked Google!) That’s another reason to share this idea.

Thus, even though I was doubtful, I decided to share them on this blog. Hopefully, I repeat this one day or another and update the images.

That’s all for now. Fingers crossed – you won’t stop by here and see this post:) If you have stopped here, please don’t be too harsh on me.

Better make some of these Red Velvet Profiteroles.

    Ben, am so so loving the ambience in these pictures – so sultry and sexy – and – now am craving some of these GORGEOUS Red Velvet Profiteroles! They look stunning to me – so your photos are getting their job done – leaving me with a mouthful of drool! In my opinion, fantastic photos and recipe, my friend!

    I love how creative you get with classics, Ben! And you’re being too hard on yourself about the photos, they look mouthwatering to me!

    Hope you and Audrey had a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

    I like these pics; I think they’re kind of fun and dramatic! But I feel your pain when it comes to natural lighting in the winter. And I love the fact that we both had the same idea for Valentine’s Day. Great minds really do think alike :). These sound delicious, Ben! Happy Valentine’s Day!

    All good food deserves to be shared Ben, so thanks for sharing these. Natural lighting is so difficult and I feel your pain. I have just 2 days I can photograph my recipes on a weekly basis (Saturday and Sunday) as I work Monday to Friday and if the light is bad, there’s nothing I can do about it either! But, one thing to remember is that what doesn’t look quite right to your eye, looks different for another set of eyes and I think these photographs are just great!

    Natural lighting can be so tough!! Especially here in Canada, in the winter. I can’t wait for the summer when I can shoot beautiful pictures at 8pm!! You did these profiteroles justice – they look amazing!!! I wish my Valentine was gifting these to me tomorrow ;)

    Well I for one am really glad you decided to share these profiteroles, Ben! And I totally agree with you assessment that these wouldn’t have lasted an extra day. I mean how can you put a plate of these down on the counter and expect Andrey to stay away? That’s just rude! Natural lighting can be so difficult, but I think you did a solid job considering the rainy day situation. Plus, this is just a fun recipe no matter what! If Andrey left any, I’d be happy to sample them. :-) Happy Valentine’s Day to you and Andrey!
