No, Valentines Day is not only for adults but for kids too! Or at least in our home it is. Every Valentines Day, my husband and I would go out into the yard and have a small V-Day picnic with the kids. Yes, a far cry from romantic dinners and long walks after, but this is our reality now, and were happy with it.

So anyway, kids being kids, I needed something to get their interest and not make them run back inside the house and play with their Xbox. So just like their father, I bribe them with food.

And this Valentines week, I plan to create a simple but yummy Red velvet Cupcake for my two kids,and.... the old kid.

The only concern I have is the fighting that might ensue over who gets the most cupcakes. No, not between the kids, but between their father and them.

Your Ingredients


1/2 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
2 1/2 cups of flour
1 tsp of baking soda
1/2 tsp of salt
1 cup of softened butter
2 cups of sugar
4 eggs
1 cup of sour cream
1/2 cup milk
1 (1 ounce) bottle of red food coloring
2 tsp of vanilla extract


Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting:
1 (8 ounce) package of softened cream cheese
1/4 cup of softened butter
2 tbsp of sour cream
2 tsp of vanilla extract
1 (16 ounce) box of confectioners' sugar

How to make your Red Velvet Cupcake

First you need to preheat your oven to 350°F.

You then start mixing your baking soda, cocoa powder and salt in a bowl. Once done, set it aside for later.

Now get another bowl and beat your sugar and butter using an electric mixer. Mix for 5 minutes on medium until the mixture becomes light and fluffy.

Once done, start beating in your eggs into the mixture one at a time.

Also add in your sour cream, milk, food coloring and vanilla.

Put your mixer on low and slowly add in your flour mixture you made earlier until it is blended.

Now spoon in your mixture, 2/3 full, into muffin cups. Bake for 20 minutes.

Once done, allow them to cool for 5 minutes before removing from their pans.

Now for your vanilla cream cheese frosting:

Get a large bowl and beat your sour cream, butter, cream cheese and vanilla extract until it becomes light and fluffy.

Slowly beat in the confectioners' sugar until the mixture becomes smooth.

Top your cooled down cakes with the frosting.

In reality duration of making this cake can be a little here and there.It is actually pretty decent recipe for red velvet but I think time of making this cake will differ between pro and new cook.Among all the cupcakes I found red velvet most nice looking.By the way if I heat the oven into 350 then wouldn’t it be difficult for me to bring or put the pan into the oven?

Lewis#10

the cream cheese frosting is incredible!! I made a medium-sized 3 layer cake using the same instructions. It was my first cake, and it came out pretty good. The frosting makes a TON so i suggest either halving it or doubling the cupcakes. Also, I hand-mixed the cake batter. It wasn’t too difficult, and it made sure that it cake turned out moist and delicious.

Rick Rickles#11

My favorite! Red Velvet anything is just so delicious. This recipe looks like a winner. Thank you for including the cream cheese frosting recipe too. I’m sure the cupcakes will last all of 5 minutes in my household, lol!

Mikey#12

I love cupcakes and red velvet is one of my favorites. They’re not that difficult to make and they’re absolutely delicious. The pictures that you’ve posted are making me incredibly hungry for some red velvet cupcakes.

Susan#13

I’m so glad that you introduced your children to this old-time cake. Red Velvet cake has been around forever. What makes this recipe interesting to me is your luscious frosting. Cream cheese makes anything even better.

Amanda G#14

Wish I would have seen this recipe before Valentine’s day. I would have loved to have made them and taken them in for a work party. The only red velvet cakes/cupcakes I have every made come out of a box. Cannot wait to try these.

Rajko Petkovski#15

The first time I tried Oreo’s Red Velvet ice cream, something just clicked.

These cupcakes must be equally delicious.

Added it to my recipe collection!

Yum! I have such fond memories of my grandmother making red velvet cake when I was a little girl. I am going to try this recipe and bring back the tradition that she had! A pure southern treat!

What people are saying about us:

  • "The shears arrived on time and in perfect condition. The moment I picked them up I knew these were quality shears. The very first thing I used them for was to cut a chicken in half. I cut through the breast, right down the middle and then through the spine. For a moment I thought something was not right with that chicken because I cut through it with such ease. I was amazed! They are extremely sharp and have a very nice weight to them. I feel tempted to buy another pair just because."

    By DRW

  • "Very fast delivery, very well packed, friendly, professional, courteous & very knowledgeable service. I'm a line cook so I go through 2-3 thermometers a month. This thermometer is very well built & very sturdy. It lights up which helps a lot. It's very quick on the readings which you greatly need when you have 15-25 things you need to check an hour. The probe is approximately 6-7 inches & at first I thought that was quite long but the more I've used it I like the longer probe. What more can I say about this? It's a great deal for the money & with a lifetime warranty you can't go wrong. I'll be buying a second & maybe a third for home on the barbeque grill."

    By deb

  • "At last, I can open the jars and bottles without asking for help. We were using some gizmo with a rubber strap that I could never understand how it was supposed to work let alone manipulate it correctly. Chef Remi’s jar opener is very simple to use and it really works on the first attempt with little to no pressure or stress on my arthritic hands. I am so glad I ran across this item and it is well worth the price (which is very good). I can use this tool not only in the kitchen but anywhere there's a jar, bottle or similar container to be opened."

    By grace jones

  • "I saw a commercial for these grill mats on TV, it almost seemed too good to be true.....so I bought them to try them out. Everything in the TV commercial was true and more! You can grill ANYTHING on these mats, keeps flavor in foods, you can add cheese & sauces to your food and there's no mess to clean up! Your grill stays clean, your food tastes amazing, and you simply rinse the mats with warm soapy water! I love these grill mats so much I bought another set for my dad, he grills all year round. My dad loved the grill mats also and is now telling his friends about them. AMAZING PRODUCT!!!"

    By Aly's Max

  • "My new favorite kitchen scissors. I love to cook but do everything I can to not have to touch chicken and these are perfect. Nothing worse than a pair of scissors that leave you half way through a cut and then doesn't come through, these are not those. I can't wait to try them out when making jerky next weekend. I will try to remember to post an update after but sure my review will remain the same. These feel very sturdy and like they will last forever. I have ordered several Chef Remi items and love them all. Wish they would make more stuff I could use as I have almost everything available on Amazon from them."
