Pink Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting- A fun twist on the classic velvet cupcake! Pink cupcakes topped with a smooth cream cheese frosting.
These adorable cupcakes are just right for Valentine’s Day or just any old day you simply want a cupcake. 😉
- Flour + Salt+ Baking soda
- Unsweetened cocoa powder
- Egg + Vanilla
- 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.
