Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

I love red velvet anything. It is one of my favorite treats of all time. Cupcakes are where I got my love of baking, I used to spend hours finding ways to perfect cupcakes. My love of cupcakes brought my love of baking pretty much anything. I made these for a 4th of July party and they were a hit. The red velvet was the red, the cream cheese icing was the white, and I topped each mini cupcake with a blueberry for the blue. Super easy and super festive.
Red Velvet Cupcakes: Warning this recipe makes a ton of mini cupcakes! So cut it in half if you would prefer :)
2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
1/2 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp of baking soda
1/2 tsp of salt
1 cup of unsalted butter
2 cups of sugar
4 eggs
1 cup of sour cream
1/2 cup of milk
1 oz of red food coloring
2 tsp of vanilla extract
First preheat the oven to 350 and line your cupcake tins with liners. Then, mix together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.
Then, in your mixer, mix together the butter and sugar until fluffy.
Then, add the eggs and beat them in one at a time.
Then, add the sour cream and milk and beat until combined.
Then, mix in the red food coloring and the vanilla extract and mix until combined.
Then, add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients. Mix until combined.
Scoop the batter into the liners about 3/4 full.
Bake for about 10 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Then, make the icing while the cupcakes cool.
Cream Cheese Frosting:
1 8 oz package of cream cheese
1/4 cup of butter
2 tbs of sour cream
2 tsp of vanilla extract
1 16 oz box of powdered sugar
Add all the ingredients to your mixer and beat until well combined.
Then, ice your cupcakes after they cool.

I topped mine with a blueberry, but you can do whatever you would like. Then Enjoy! :)
