These adorable cupcakes are just right for Valentine’s Day or just any old day you simply want a cupcake. 😉

Ingredients Needed:

  • Flour + Salt+ Baking soda
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Sugar
  • Butter
  • Egg + Vanilla
  • Vinegar
  • Milk
  • Food coloring
  • Cream cheese
  • Powdered sugar

Butter: Make sure it’s softened.

Food Coloring: I was unable to find pink food coloring at my store. So, I simply used a smidgen of red instead. If you have pink, use the pink. If you have red, use the red, but, just a bit less than the pink.

A few notes:

  • This recipe makes just 6 cupcakes, instead of the standard 12.
  • Traditionally, velvet cupcakes are matched with cream cheese frosting. I shared a link to my recipe here at Big Green House in the recipe card. Being that this recipe only makes 6 cupcakes, you will have to cut that frosting recipe in half.
