Red velvet is definitely my go-to recipe for cupcakes, but I wanted to change it up a little bit for the holiday season! The cake is still rich and moist, while the decadent buttercream frosting ads just a hint of peppermint to get you into the holiday spirit! And achieving that red and white swirl frosting is easier than you think! Bake a batch for your upcoming holiday party or family get-together, but I won’t judge you if you save them all for yourself! 😉
What better way to recognize Memorial Day than with red and blue velvet cupcakes! The moist velvety cake and rich buttercream frosting make a perfect red, white, and blue combination for Memorial Day or the Fourth of July!
Red Velvet Oreo Chunk Cupcakes with Cookies and Cream Frosting
With Valentine’s Day approaching I thought it would be fun to combine my recent craving for Oreos with my other love, red velvet cupcakes! The warm and velvety cake and the crunch from the Oreo’s make an irresistible combination! So ignore your New Year’s Resolution for one day and indulge.. you can always leave angry comments later about how I’m destroying your will power with my cupcake recipes ; )
Red Velvet Cupcakes with Peppermint Cream Cheese Frosting
In October I put up my Red Velvet Ex-Girlfriend Cupcakes recipe
and everyone loved them! Well.. everyone except the exes themselves ; ) so here’s the recipe again only with a December twist! The peppermint cream cheese frosting melts in your mouth while the crushed up candy canes give it a nice crunch! I took these to a party last night and they went QUICK! So if you’re doing any baking over the next few weeks, these are a must!
Red Velvet Ex-Girlfriend Cupcakes
It’s been my experience in this relationship and those prior, that the past never stays the past for long. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned right? One thing these girls have provided for me (other than junior high level drama) is inspiration! This month I wanted to do zombie themed cupcakes, but then I thought, “What’s more terrifying than zombies? What creature keeps coming back no matter how many times you strike them in the head?” The answer… EX-GIRLFRIENDS!
