Red Velvet Cupcakes With Cream Cheese Frosting

One of the many recipes in my to do list, been so long there, so gotta put it into action :)

Red velvet cupcakes, do you believe it, I have never even once tried the taste of this pretty cake
So, one of the reason, or I can say, the first reason, is my curiousity about the taste... from the 'red', and the texture... from the 'velvet'
And my other question mark need an urgent answer, why this cake is always topped with cream cheese frosting

I really had no regret picking up this recipe to jump the queue :)
It's indeed such a beauty with quality!
There's no 'red' taste, it's just like when you eat chocolate cupcakes, not the dark deep rich type though
And the 'velvet' texture, I really can't agree more! It's pillowy soft, indeed reminds me of velvet :)

A truly keeper, in overall


Recipe is from Sweet Pea's Kitchen
The only thing I omitted was the cinnamon for the frosting


I'm submitting these cupcakes to   Aspiring Bakers #13: Enjoy Cupcakes (November 2011) hosted by Min

  3. Your cupcakes is gorgeous! I guess the reason for the cream cheese is it goes perfectly well with the Red Velvet Cake! But then I prefer cream cheese frosting over buttercream anytime! Yum! Lovely bake, Alice!
