Red Velvet Cupcakes


This is my contribution to Foodie Friday this week.






I ran across this mix at Sur La Table and couldn’t pass it up!

Conflicting information and urban legends abound on the origin of Red Velvet Cake, but no one disputes its beautiful red color.





The package directions said it made 10 cupcakes, but I easily got 12 out of the box




In addition to the box mix, you need 2 eggs, water, 2 sticks of butter (6 Tablespoons for the batter & 6 Tablespoons for the icing) and 8 oz. of cream cheese.



Of course, this is not my favorite kind of cupcake…









THIS is my favorite kind of cupcake



Here’s hoping there is some sort of cupcake in your future this Valentine’s weekend…

    Red Velvet Cupcakes in a mix? Cupcake Vineyards? Life just got a whole lot better!

    I googled to see where it is located and when it told me in Monterey, California I jumped for joy. And only $13 for the Chardonnay with a big thumbs up from Wine Spectator for the 2007 pressing. Honey, I am in cupcake heaven!

    So the “red” is in the mix? I love Ina’s recipes, so I’m sure her mixes are excellent.
    Happy Valentine’s Day.

    I could be wrong but I think Red Velvet cakes in general are an American dessert. I grew up eating lots of fresh baking but I never heard of red velvet cake until I started my blog a year ago and started running across it. And we certainly don’t have a mix here (in B.C., Canada) but I’m excited to try my hand at these from scratch one day.
