Red Velvet Flower Shaped Cupcakes

  
It was my my daughter’s school fete this weekend and we unfortunately couldn’t attend as she had her performing arts school production; so it was a lovely surprise to find that I had won a raffle prize on the school run this morning.

Upon opening it was a lovely flower shaped silicone cupcake mould from The Pampered Chef.

  

Of course the children were champing at the bit to give it a go so we decided on some red velvet cupcakes with the frosting piped inside so we didn’t ruin the ornate shape of them.

If you fancy giving them a go with or without the mould here is the recipe:

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Cupcakes

  • 185g Self Raising Flour
  • 200g Caster Sugar 
  • 200g Butter
  • 4 Eggs
  • 4tsp Red Food Colouring
  • 15g Coccoa Powder

Frosting

  • 175g Unsalted Butter
  • 125g Full Fat Soft Cheese
  • 175g Icing Sugar

  

    1. Preheat the oven to 180c
    2. Cream together the butter and sugar
    3. In a separate bowl beat the eggs and then gradually add to the butter and sugar mixture.
    4. Sieve the flour and coccoa powder into the mixture along with the food colouring.
    5. Mix well and then spread evenly between the cake moulds/cases.
    6. Place into the preheated oven for around 15mins.
    7. Place them onto a wire cooling rack whilst you prepare the frosting.
    8. Cream the better until really soft and then gradually add the cream cheese and icing sugar.
    9. Place into a piping bag and leave to stand until the cakes are completly cooled.
    10. Once ready put the spout about a third of the way into the cake and squeeze until a little comes back out.
    11. They will then be ready to serve.
