Red Velvet Valentine’s Day Cupcakes

I have never made red velvet cupcakes before and thought Valentine’s Day would be the perfect opportunity to give it a go.


185g Self-Raising Flour

15g Cocoa Powder

200g Butter

200g Caster Sugar

4 Eggs

2-4 tsp Red Food Colouring

I started by creaming together the sugar and butter before slowly adding the eggs.

I then sieved in the dry ingredients before adding the colouring.

Once the colouring was fully mixed in I popped the mixture in the cases and baked for 15 minutes at 200°c.

 Once the cakes had cooled I iced and topped with some edible hearts.
