Red Velvet cupcake is among the most used theme celebration cakes that I have come across, be it for the color theme of the national flag or the theme for a festival, eg. Christmas and Valentine’s Day.
These red velvet cupcakes are yummy yet quick and easy to bake, just add a little highlight on the frosting and decorations, they will be served according to the colors of the country’s flag. Today, I decorated my red velvet cupcakes with 2-tone cream cheese frosting: white (cream) and blue – to give a red / white / blue color theme and these cakes are just in time for the upcoming Independence Day of the United States which falls on 4th of July.
I am using a popular red velvet cake pre-mix for this since I love the texture it gave and the ease of preparing. However, I find it has less chocolaty taste that a red velvet cake should have. Mandy, my baking buddy, tried a red velvet recipe before and it is prepared from scratch, if you would like to have more chocolaty flavor, you may try this recipe. If you opt for quick and easy baking, continue to click the page 2 here for the details.
Hope you have a wonderful baking! I am returning to my sewing room for a new cutie pie sewing project to complete, will share the pattern and tutorial as soon as it is completed.
