Red Velvet Cupcakes With Cream Cheese Frosting

Nuvita Biscuits


  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
  • 1 cup buttermilk, room temp
  • 2 eggs, room temp
  • 2 tablespoons red food coloring
  • 1 teaspoon white distilled vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

For the frosting:

  • 16 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 cups powdered sugar, sifted


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Sift the first five ingredients together. In another bowl, slowly mix together the rest of the ingredients for the cupcakes. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until well combined.
  3. Fill paper lined muffin tins about 2/3 full. Bake for 20-22 minutes, turning the pans once at the halfway mark. Stick a toothpick in the middle of one to see if it comes out clean for doneness. Cool before frosting.

For the frosting:
Mix cream cheese, butter, and vanilla until smooth. Add the sugar slowly. Mix on high until it’s fluffy.

    I am making red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting for a wedding. Will be topping each cupcake with a gumpaste rose and a leaf. My question is – Will the colours of the gumpaste bleed?

    Should I use buttercream instead?

    So my mom loves red velvet cupcakes and I’m a poor college student so i’m going to make her some for mothers day. She doesn’t really like gross sugar frosting you get on pre made cookies but I think she likes the cream cheese kind etc.

    So anybody have a really good frosting recipe?
