Red Velvet is Back
Red Velvet Cupcakes (Squared) with Chocolate Cream cheese Frosting
This in now the third time I have made red velvet cake. This time, upon the request of my husband who loved the Red Velvet cupcakes I made HERE (where you can also get the link to the recipe I used). I brought them over to a friends to share for a dinner get-together( I refuse to use the term pot-luck-it's so out-dated).
I also had just bought this new square baking pan and I thought it would be perfect to make cupcakes in, red velvet cupcakes. :)
So, I used the same recipe I used the other two times that always came out perfectly BUT, this time they seemed quite dry. Maybe I left them in the oven a minute or two too long?
That's the only thing I can think of because I did everything else the same and followed the recipe EXACATACLY.
I served them with vanilla ice cream and I think that helped because everyone seemed to like them OK.
I tend not to make the same recipe twice without some kind of different twist, I made a version of Stef's favorite from Cupcake Project Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting to go on this round of RVC.
Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting:
16 oz cream cheese(softened)
1/2 cup butter (softened)
1 tbs vanilla
3 Cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder(sifted)
-Beat cream cheese and butter until smooth and fluffy
-Add powdered sugar and mix
-Add vanilla and mix
-Then add cocoa powdered and mix well.. and your ready to frost.
This frosting was very, very good although, I think I like a lemon cream cheese frosting a little more than this one.
So, until next time...
THIS IS THE END!
