Kelly's Red Velvet Birthday Cupcake!

Maggie May Schill


Happy birthday Kelly!!!!

I poured a portion of the batter into an individual coffee cup to make a birthday cake cupcake!!! Only have to fill an oven resistant mug half way up with batter and bake for about 20-25 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean.

How to Make Kelly's Red Velvet Birthday Cupcake!


  1. Method for Cake Batter:

    Preheat oven to 350'F
    Grease or line cupcake pans. ( If you are using a coffee mug like I did, there's no reason to lubricate the mug.)
  2. In small sauce pan, melt 1 cup of white chocolate in a double boiler until tempered.
  3. In large mixing bowl, sift together: flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  4. In a 2nd mixing bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, vinegar, food coloring and vanilla extract.
  5. Beat melted chocolate and butter together, then mix the chocolate butter mixture into the dry ingredients.
  6. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients with a hand or standing mixer. Beat until smooth. Do not over beat, you want your red velvet cake to be dense and not overly airy.
  7. Pour batter evenly into cupcake pans.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a tooth pick comes out clean.
  9. Method for Creme Glaze:

    Scald your milk with the sugar and white chocolate in a small sauce pan over medium-high heat. Stir occasionally so the milk doesn't scorch. Scald until white chocolate is completely melted.
  10. In a small mixing bowl cream your yolks with your cornstarch until it makes a paste.
  11. Slowly stir boiled milk into your egg mixture while beating vigorously.
  12. Add vanilla extract and stir.
  13. Once cream is smooth put back into sauce pan and cook on low heat until it thicken. (Add a splash of milk if your sauce gets too thick in the cooking process.)
  14. For Cream Cheese Frosting:

  15. Assembly!!!!

    Once cakes are cooled, dip or drench each cake in the creme glaze.
    Frost each cake with cream cheese frosting as you desire. I chose to garnish each cake with red sugar.
