Red Velvet Cup Cake recipe with step by step pictures. What exactly is this Red Velvet Cup Cake? Conventionally, it is a mahogany-tinted cake that has this wonderful white cream cheese icing layering it. Prepared especially for Valentine’s Day or the much-awaited Christmas, these are fluffy, moist and buttery cakes, loved by all.
To be honest, I was never a fan of them, until I tried it once at a friend’s wedding anniversary. The one, which I tasted, was a lavish three-layered slice cake that was all buttery and luscious, having a hint of chocolaty flavor. The best thing was its tangy cream cheese frosting complementing the nicely done crumb underneath and as I took a generous bite from it, I instantly fell in love with it.
Let me share my experience of baking red velvet cupcakes. For the past 2 years, I have been on a quest to bake this delicious cake but have been a major failure. Of all those cupcakes, which I prepared, unfortunately, none deserved a spot in my archive. However, my efforts did not go in vain, as I learned something or the other on every attempt. It was only last month that I finally nailed it, after working like a mad scientist on it. 😀 You will not believe how amazing it turned out to be! Even my husband, who does not have a fascination for them, relished it.
If you are wondering when to prepare it, I would suggest whipping it up for this Christmas. I am sure these spongy classic cupcakes smeared with cream frosting will definitely turn out to be a delight for those having a sweet tooth. Now imagine all this in just 35 minutes! Such puffy dome-shaped little cupcakes taking merely half an hour sound good, isn’t it? I hope 12 pieces are plenty for your family but if you wish to arrange for a small get-together, you can also bake some more. Lastly, add sprinkles on top for a perfect finishing touch and voila! I’m sure you are going to admire it as much as you would love devouring it. J
