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!

Step-by-Step

  • 1Method 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.)
  • 2In small sauce pan, melt 1 cup of white chocolate in a double boiler until tempered.
  • 3In large mixing bowl, sift together: flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
  • 4In a 2nd mixing bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, vinegar, food coloring and vanilla extract.
  • 5Beat melted chocolate and butter together, then mix the chocolate butter mixture into the dry ingredients.
  • 6Mix 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.
  • 7Pour batter evenly into cupcake pans.
  • 8Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a tooth pick comes out clean.
  • 9Method 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.
  • 10In a small mixing bowl cream your yolks with your cornstarch until it makes a paste.
  • 11Slowly stir boiled milk into your egg mixture while beating vigorously.
  • 12Add vanilla extract and stir.
  • 13Once 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.)
  • 14For Cream Cheese Frosting:

    MIX ALL THE INGREDIENTS TOGETHER!!!!!
  • 15Assembly!!!!


    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.

    ENJOY!!!
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY KELLY!!!!!!
