stephmodo: Red Velvet Cupcakes

Red Velvet Cupcakes

• 15 June 2008

I've wanted to try my hand at Red Velvet Cupcakes for sometime now. There's just something about that red cake that I find so alluring...

I used Chockylit's recipe for the red can find it here. She shared some interesting tips on cupcake-making as well. Definitely worth a look.

I made up my own vanilla buttercream recipe, which doesn't take any special culinary skills, I promise ;) It's just a simple combination of butter, sifted powdered sugar, a little vanilla, and a little milk. In retrospect, I should've kept track of my measurements because now I have to make up another batch. Oh darn.

P.S. Did you know it takes practically an entire bottle of red food coloring to make a good-sized batch of Red Velvet Cupcakes? Yikes!


  1. we hope they were as tasty as they looked. the frosting certainly looks professional.

    thanks for visiting our new blog! hope you come back soon!

  2. I just went through many atempts at the perfect red velvet cupcake...I wanted to do them for my little ones birthday. Finally I created my own that is somewhat similar to the one posted and I too couldn't believe how much red food coloring you need.

  3. steph,

  4. I learned the hard way just how much red food coloring you need, along with just how difficult it is to get red food coloring off your fingers!

    Yours look divine! Can't wait to try this recipe :-)

  5. If you want to taste the best Red Velvet cupcake. Try one at Molly's Cupcakes in Chicago. MMMMMM delicious!

  6. Brittany, yes those are my pictures. It's amazing how much a pastry bag with a little plastic tip can help in the presentation category :)
