Red Velvet Cupcakes


Red velvet cupcakes have always attracted me. There's just something romantic about it. I don't do a lot of baking or desserts because many of the recipes that I'm drawn to makes way more than two can eat - it's excessive!

Red Velvet Cupcake with Cream Cheese Frosting

So, I was really excited when I stumbled across this website that had this amazing recipe which makes just four red velvet cupcakes.

It was so delicious that I was salivating for more. More! There's none left, of course. It was all gone in a matter of minutes. Now, why did I just make four ...on the bright side, there is no chance of overeating with this recipe.

Anyway, check out my adventure in photos. You may find the recipe here: Red Velvet Cupcakes | Dessert For Two

The only thing I did differently is reduce the red food colouring from one teaspoon to 3/4 and sprinkle small sugar decorations instead of chocolate chips on top.

Bake today and drool no more!


1) Mix dry ingredients
2) Mix wet ingredients (I used a hand mixer)
3) While mixing, gradually combine wet and dry ingredients
4) Pour batter into cupcake liners

 
Bake at 175C in a pre-heated oven for about 20 minutes

While the cake is baking, make the cream cheese frosting

Pipe cream cheese frosting onto red velvet cupcake

Sprinkle some sugar decorations on top ..voila!
Too pretty to eat but too delicious to resist.

This is how it looks like on the inside!
