How To Make Red Velvet Cupcakes

Everyone is talking about Red Velvet Cupcakes from a long time. I tried them first at a cake shop and since then I was trying to find a perfect recipe. My first impression was is it chocolate or vanilla flavor? Confusing flavor. I can hardly explain the taste in words, but everyone seems to be enjoying them a lot!

These cupcakes are so spongy, moist, buttery, full of vanilla flavor with a hint of chocolate goodness. And the salty and tangy flavor of frosting on the top complement each other, sweet cupcake and tangy frosting tastes so yummilicious!! It’s a must try on Christmas. Here is the step by step recipe for you.IMG_20151127_183809

For frosting

½ cup butter (unsalted)
1 ¼ cup icing sugar/ sugar powder
3 tbsp whole milk thick yogurt
½ tsp salt (don’t use salt if you are using salted butter )IMG_20151127_171802IMG_20151127_174510

Beat together butter and icing sugar for 30 seconds. Add yogurt and salt beat again for 30 seconds. Pour butter cream into an icing bag and design your cupcakes. Or just spread the frosting cream with the butter knife. (Frosting can be done only on cold cupcake else butter will melt. )IMG_20151127_175924 IMG_20151127_183809
