Red Velvet Cupcake with White Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing
Originally uploaded by watchjennybake.
For many years I have been using recipes from The Cake Mix Doctor and Chocolate from the Cake Mix Doctor. The cakes are great, and the frostings are always superb. She isn't using the cakes as directed on the box, and the changes make all the difference. I think my favorite creation was using her double chocolate rum cake and using it as a basis for chocolate tiramisu - I should really post that recipe sometime.
When finding a recipe for Valentines Day, my mind was on cupcakes for some reason, and red velvet cupcakes seemed fitting. This recipe comes from the Cake Mix Doctor website, so I will just point you there to make these for yourself.
The batter is thick and a vivid red, thanks to the addition of sour cream and red food coloring; and the mini chocolate chips add a lot of interest and flavor. I'm not sure I'm a huge fan of the white chocolate in the cream cheese icing, but it does add an extra dimension of flavor. Some of them had pink sprinkles, lucky them!
