red velvet cupcakes

one for you, one for me

I love a good cupcake, and a red velvet cupcake with its delicious cream cheese icing is always a winner for me.

I never really used to get that into making sweets and desserts but now I find that they are often the most fun to make, especially when it comes to decorating and making them look pretty, because there often isn’t anything pretty about a lamb shank.

I made these for a friend’s birthday because i’m so nice….plus i probably just wanted to eat one too.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 150 C fan forced & line 12 medium muffin tins with paper cases.
  2. Using electric beaters, beat butter & sugar until pale & creamy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla & food colouring & beat until combined.
  3. Sift flour & cocoa powder into a bowl. Add half to the butter mixture & fold in lightly until just combined. Fold in buttermilk then the remaining flour mixture.
  4. Spoon into paper cases & bake for 20 mins, or until springy to a light touch. Leave in tin for 5 mins, then lift out onto a wire rack to cool.
  5. To make the icing, use electric beaters or food processor to beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add icing sugar a little at a time, beating constantly, then add lemon juice.
  6. Spoon into a piping bag fitted with a plain 1cm nozzle & pipe a swirl onto each cooled cupcake. Enjoy!....don't forget to share them though
