Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Yumm....ain't these the cutest cupcakes you've ever seen!!

Red Velvet Cupcakes would have to be one of the most prettiest cupcakes that are out there!!! A beautiful rich red colour, fluffy yet super moist delicious chocolate cupcake, topped with a sweet and creamy cream cheese frosting....mmmm yummmmm!!! One taste and you'll be coming back for more : )

I made these over the weekends, using the new cupcake casings I purchased especially just to make these cupcakes. The casings are so pretty I didn't want to rip them apart when eating the cupcakes hehe

This is my recipe:
Ingredients (makes 30 cupcakes)

2 and a 1/2 cups plain flour
2 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
2 cups caster sugar
4 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoon of red food colouring
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting:
250g tub of cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 tablespoons sour cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups of icing sugar

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Sift flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt in medium bowl. Set aside.
2. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed 5 minutes or until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Mix in sour cream, milk, food color and vanilla. Gradually beat in flour mixture on low speed until just blended. Do not overbeat. Spoon batter into 30 paper-lined muffin cups, filling each cup 2/3 full.

3. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted into cupcake comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire rack 5 minutes. Remove from pans; cool completely. Frost with Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting.

4. Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting: Beat cream cheese, softened, butter, sour cream and vanilla extract in large bowl until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in icing sugar until smooth.

I also add a glace cherry on top to make them look super adorable!!!

So many cupcakes.....

You will sure win the crowd over with these lovely and delicious cupcakes!

Happy Eating my lovely readers!!
