I Love red velvet cake. Joe requested I make some of these so he could take them to work for his birthday. I found some cute Cars cupcake liners (yes my husband is a big kid!!) They were gone by 10am! I also made some fall themed ones for my co-workers at my internship. Everyone loved them.



Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting
For the cupcakes:
2 eggs
1 1/2 Cups sugar
1 1/2 Cups Vegetable oil
1 tsp white vinegar
2 1/2 Cups cake flour
1 tsp baking soda
3 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 Cup buttermilk
1 tsp vanilla
5/8 oz bottle red food coloring

For the frosting:
8 oz cream cheese (no need to soften)
5 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened
2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 Cups powdered sugar, sifted

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 muffin pans with liners. Cream eggs, sugar, oil and vinegar. Sift the cake flour, baking soda, and cocoa together. Add the flour mixture to the sugar and eggs while beating. Slowly add the buttermilk. Continue beating and add the vanilla and food coloring. Fill the cupcake liners 2/3 of the way with batter. Bake for 18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack and cool compltely.

To make the frosting, cream the cream cheese, butter and vanilla on medium-high speed. Add the powdered sugar to the cheese mixture in batches. Beat on low until just combined, increase speed to high until desired consistency is reached. Frost as desired.
