Red Velvet Cupcake with Cream Cheese Frosting

The kids have been asking me to make Red Velvet flavour anything for a while now. When I got the invite to bake for the Calgary Food Bloggers Bake Sale I decided to add a little ‘wow factor’ to my portion of the bake sale. I’m not that big into cupcakes but I was willing to give these a go for charity. I think they turned out quite nicely PLUS I found some really cool cupcake boxes at Winners so I was excited to place them on the table.

I found this recipe online from whiskitforabiscuit (who basically used Martha Stewart’s recipe). She’s made many kinds of cupcakes so I figured she knew what she was doing. The recipe states that it makes 22 cupcakes which is a bit odd but is exactly how many I produced. Maybe I could have squeezed one more out to make 23 but as it happens my boxes held exactly four cupcakes leaving exactly 2 cupcakes as extras and two very happy kids!

First of all let me say I was unprepared for the batter carnage. Everything the batter touched became stained pink so I had to be extremely careful. I have a white porcelain kitchen sink which gets stained very easily so I had to do the all the dishes in my stainless steel laundry sink. The porcelain sink is definitely on the ‘to be replaced’ list. Who puts a white sink in a kitchen?


Making the batter calls for alternating dry and wet (buttermilk) ingredients then adding baking soda mixed in vinegar right at the end.
