baking couture RED VELVET CUPCAKES

Yesterday I made two batches of these cupcakes for my daughter to take to her friends for their halloween party tonight. 

2 cups of Plain Flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp bicarbonate powder
1 1/2 cup of caster sugar
1 cup buttermilk
200 g unsalted butter, melted
2 eggs lightly whisked
1 tbs white vinegar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1-2 tsp red food colouring

2x250g cream cheese, at room temperature
2 cups pure icing sugar
120g butter, at room temperature
1 tsp vanilla essence

Preheat oven to 170°C. Line eighteen 80ml (1/3 cup) capacity muffin pans with paper cases. Sift flour, cocoa powder and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl. Stir through the sugar. Whisk the buttermilk, butter, eggs, vinegar and vanilla in a large jug until combined. Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture. Add the buttermilk mixture. Stir until just combined. Stir in the food colouring. 

Divide the mixture among the lined pans. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centres comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Use an electric beater to beat the cream cheese, icing sugar, extra butter and extra vanilla until smooth. Spread over cupcakes.
