Red velvet cupcakes


For the cupcakes

  • Preheat the oven to 160ο C (320ο F) set to fan.
  • In a mixer’s bowl add the butter, the sugar, the vanilla, and beat with the paddle attachment at high speed, for 4-5 minutes, until the butter is fluffy.
  • Add the food coloring paste and beat at low speed. Add the eggs one by one. Wait for each one to be incorporated before adding the next and increase the speed to combine the ingredients well.
  • Add the flour, the salt, the milk, and beat at medium speed for 10 seconds.
  • Transfer the mixture to a pastry bag and fill the cupcake liners that are placed in a 12-cup muffin pan. Fill 2/3 of each cup.
  • Bake for 20-15 minutes and let them cool well.

For the frosting

  • In a mixer’s bowl add the butter, the icing sugar, the vanilla, the cream cheese, and beat with the paddle attachment at high speed, for 2-3 minutes, until the ingredients are homogenized.
  • Take a pastry bag with a star tip and turn the inside out. With a pastry brush, spread the whole surface of the pastry bag with the food coloring paste.
  • Flip the pastry bag back to normal and fill it with the frosting. This way, the frosting will become swirled.
  • Decorate your cupcakes with the frosting, add any candies that you like, and serve.
