Red Velvet Cupcakes

Even though I don’t have a sweet tooth, I have been attracted to red velvet cupcakes for the longest time as they are, to me, the prettiest cupcakes ever. As if it is not enough that these strikingly dramatic red cupcakes with their elegantly pale frosting made them a hit all year round, they still get extra limelight on Christmas and Valentine’s Day for their festive colours.

Since Christmas is just around the corner, this is the perfect time for me to bake some to usher in the festive cheer. They turned out just great: the cupcakes were moist in the middle and not overly sweet, complementing well with the sweet cream cheese frosting.

  5. Hi, can share how much is 1 cup caster (super fine) sugar & 2/3 cup buttermilk in grams? Thanks!!

    • If you used the same cup throughout the recipe, it won’t be necessary to measure; nevertheless, 1 cup caster sugar is approximately 200 grams.

    • Thanks for the tips! Will use the same cup for the flour, sugar & buttermilk :)

  6. Your cupcake look delicious! Sorry im a newbie in baking. I would like to know can we keep the cupcake with creamcheese frosting under normal room temp or must we put the cupcakes in the fridge? I want to bake the cupcake tonight n pass it to my colleagues the next day.

    • Keep the cupcakes covered in an airtight container (no need fridge) for 1-2 days. If longer than 2 days, freeze in ziplock bags and warm in the oven or toaster. For the frosting, it can be refrigerated in a covered container for 2 days, or frozen for 3 months. Bring to room temperature and beat with mixer briefly before decorating.

    • Hi, thanks for your advise! Indeed u ve help me alot!
      Sorry I got another qn. After I do my frosting on the cupcake, must I keep inside a cooler bag for transportation? I scare the cream cheese will melt .hehe.

    • you can if you have a cooler bag! otherwise just put in an airtight container, it should be good within an hour.

  7. Another way to obtain buttermilk is to add vinegar to normal milk :D Cost effective!

    For one cup of buttermilk – add 1 tablespoon of vinegar then fill up milk to one cup :)
