Christmas is around the corner which means it’s time to get baking ladies and gents. At least that’s what it means around here. My KitchenAid is working over time, making Choc-Chip Cookies, whipping up gingerbread houses and creating the The Moistest Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting.
Red Velvet everything has been quite a trend for a while now. But it’s seems that people seem to think it is red velvet, simply by adding red colourant. Well let me tell you, that is no so! To me red velvet is not only about the colour, but rather about the texture. It has to be incredibly moist, and most of all be almost chewy and sticky. That’s what makes a fantastic delicious red velvet cake or cupcake.
I haven’t always been the biggest fan of red velvet cupcakes, they are often dry and the frosting often way to sweet. But The Moistest Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting are amazing and will change your mind about red velvet cupcakes forever.
The Moistest Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting are perfect for holiday baking. They are easy to make, the kids will love all the colour and they truly have a festive feel to them. Adding them to your Christmas table will immediately make it more special and beautiful. I absolutely love Christmas time, there is something in the air that is always so exciting and joyous. So I am a firm believer in making sure that Christmas eve dinner and Christmas lunch is made to feel as special and as festive as possible. So these red velvet cupcakes are always part of my Christmas eve dinner because they seem to give it that festivity and they are of course scrumptiously delicious, so they are a total crowd pleaser.
Plus they don’t go dry very quickly, so you will definitely have something to serve with tea after Christmas…if they last that long ;).
