I first made this Red Velvet cupcake recipe for a wedding cake tasting for a friend. The cake was wonderful, however, I have made some tweaks and additions that I think really make these cupcakes superb. The addition of extra chocolate emboldens the cupcakes' flavors and leaves the final product a gorgeous, deep red that is as luxurious as its' name. I advocate adjusting your recipes to your own tastes. Feel free to add more or less of the flavoring, adjust the amount of red dye you use. Adding just half an ounce of the dye will brighten your cupcakes in an instant for any festive occasion! If you prefer something even more decadent a filling can always be made for the center of each cupcake. Chocolate ganache, Bavarian cream, or even the cream cheese filling make a decadent center that amp up this recipe. Just use a 10 inch feather weight piping bag with tip 230, and you have utterly sublime cupcakes that will enthrall any crowd.
The Cream Cheese frosting is the perfect compliment to your Red Velvet cupcakes. The perfect combination of cream cheese and sugar gives this frosting a subtle and elegant flavor that enhances the flavors of the cupcake.
