RED VELVET CUPCAKES WITH STRAWBERRY FROSTING
Oh, Valentine's Day!
I love LOVE and I love cupcakes!
How do you make someone smile on Valentine's Day? Bake cupcakes for them, of course!!
Red velvet cupcakes are so decadent and red velvet cupcakes offer a lovely dessert food presentation especially on Valentine's Day with the pretty color coordination for the occasion! Pretty pink colored cake frosting (strawberry flavored) looks delightful on these cupcakes for Valentine's Day!
I was recently chatting on the phone with a friend and I told her about some cakes I had baked for the Christmas and New Year's Day holidays. She said, "Ooh, did you make any red velvet cake?"
Unfortunately, I had to say no I had not made any red velvet cake but of course that gave me the idea to put it on my agenda to try making some red velvet cake or red velvet cupcakes in the future. I had never made red velvet cake myself before but I know that red velvet cake is much loved by many.
I still have not made a red velvet cake from scratch yet but below are some photos of the finished result of baking red velvet cupcakes, using Duncan Hines moist deluxe red velvet cake mix and Duncan Hines strawberry frosting.
Having baked these red velvet cupcakes, I was really pleased with the result. I baked these red velvet cupcakes the same day that I baked the yellow cake with chocolate frosting that I discuss in another hub. I enjoyed sharing it all with loved ones.
I think that Valentine's Day is nice for acknowledging your love for your children, mom, dad, aunts, siblings, grandparents, best friends... in addition to romance with your significant other (husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend). I'm one of those people that really supports the greeting card industry and I buy many Hallmark or American Greetings cards at that time of the year to mark the occasion.
You can share smiles, love & joy (and delicious taste for the palate) by baking pretty cupcakes for Valentine's Day. It's a no brainer!
Sharing red velvet cupcake dessert with loved ones
So all of this baking of red velvet cupcakes that I did was shared up for many people not just my husband. I think that everyone enjoyed these red velvet cupcakes with strawberry frosting very much!
I usually see red velvet cake with a white colored frosting of some kind such as a buttercream frosting but I liked the idea to use strawberry (pink colored) frosting for Valentine's Day.
The taste of the strawberry frosting also complements the red velvet cake well since red velvet cake has that rich cocoa flavor. Chocolate and strawberries are often paired together because they complement each other so well in taste.
Easy baking of red velvet cake
Like the yellow cake mix, baking this red velvet cake is very easy to do.:
- Just add vegetable oil, water and eggs according to red velvet cake box directions.
- The red velvet cupcakes will be in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes.
Make sure to stir your strawberry frosting frequently (about 30 times) to make it more spreadable. This is a tip that is given on the jar of strawberry frosting and one that I myself have overlooked in the past.
- The easier the strawberry frosting is to apply, the better it will look on the red velvet cupcake.
- The red velvet cake must be completely cooled before you begin spreading the strawberry frosting on it.
