It was my birthday, I’ve had my sister’s family over and I’ve decided to bake the red velvet cupcakes.

It’s really delicious and easy to bake.

Here is what you need:

  • 300 g butter at room temperature
  • 300 g sugar
  • 300 g flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 8 tablespoons milk
  • 2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cacao powder
  • 2-3  Tablespoons red food coloring
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Place all the ingredients in a bowl and mix them with a wooden spoon.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Scoop into cupcake papers or silicon, about 1/2 to 3/4 of the way full.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. 

For the frosting you need:

  • 250 g mascarpone
  • 250 g cream cheese at room temperature
  • 150 g powdered sugar
  • 3 dl cold heavy whipping cream
  • 2 packs of Dr. Oetker Whip It

In a bowl beat the whipping cream with the 2 packs of Dr. Oetker Whip It! ( I used the electric mixer ) this way the whipping cream will stay stiff without separating.

In another bowl mix the mascarpone, powdered sugar and cream cheese until smooth and add the whipping cream.

When the cupcakes are cold, arrange them on a serving platter and spoon the frosting on top.

Here are some snapshots of the result 🙂
