Valentine's Day Dessert: Easy Red Velvet Cupcakes
Surprise your sweetie (or is it sweeties?) with this delightful red velvet cupcake recipe for a special Valentine's Day dessert. They'll think you fussed, but Betty Crocker Cake Mix and a simple buttercream frosting recipe make it so easy.
I have always been a little afraid of red velvet cake. Could I really achieve that impressive red color at home? What about the buzz that you need to use buttermilk and beets to make it absolutely perfect? I am SO not about being perfect in the kitchen; I am about finding easy recipes that taste delicious.
I found the answer to my dilemma. Red velvet cupcakes...what could be easier and less intimidating for Valentine’s Day? They're casual and don't need to be perfect, just fun. It can be done!
I used the Easy Red Velvet Cake recipe and the Vanilla Buttercream Frosting from Betty Crocker® for my cupcakes. Here’s how:
First, gather your ingredients. I always find that getting all your recipe ingredients out first is a huge kitchen timesaver.
Now taste one. You've conquered red velvet cake! The Betty Crocker® recipe can be made into a cake and you can always use Betty Crocker® Rich and Creamy Frosting, found in the baking aisle, for an added timesaver.
Easy Red Velvet Cupcakes are a perfect treat for this Valentine ’s Day! The loved ones in your life will be absolutely delighted…mine were!
