Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting. My favorite treat that I make for Valentine’s Day every year!
I almost like red velvet more than I like chocolate. Almost. Because I love them so much, that also makes me the biggest critic for them. And I have to say, these DEFINITELY pass my test.
Almost every time I have red velvet, I always feel they never have enough flavor. That’s why I added a little bit more cocoa than your typical red velvet in this recipe. The flavor of these cupcakes is just amazing!
Am I the only one who thinks that if my red velvet isn’t red enough, they don’t taste as good? Ha! Obviously, that isn’t true, so I guess it’s just in my mind. But, just to ease my mind, I made sure I put PLENTY of red food coloring. I used a whole jar of Wilton’s “no taste red” gel food coloring + almost a whole bottle of liquid red food coloring (the ones that come in the assorted box).
The cupcake is perfectly moist and fluffy + topped with my absolute favorite go-to cream cheese frosting in the whole world, it is just really the most amazing cupcake ever. Oh, and you should realllllly pipe that frosting on! There’s nothing worse than a sad cupcake with not enough frosting. Also, that helps them keep their moisture in. These stay moist for days!
Yummmm. I have dreams of that bite.
Go ahead and go try these for yourself, you will not be disappointed!!
