Red Velvet Cupcakes by Holly


Today I'm having my daughter, Holly, as a guest blogger. She loves to bake and made Red Velvet Cupcakes for tonight's dessert . . .
I have always heard of how good red velvet cupcakes are, but haven't ever had them until recently. I found a recipe online but when we tried them they tasted like cornbread and were very bland. Then, we got Duncan Hines red velvet cake mix and added a 1/2 cup sour cream to it. They were very moist and tasted much better! I kept the same frosting from the previous recipe because the frosting was delicious! Hope you try them and liked them as much as I did!
Frosting Recipe:
Ingredients:
~ 1 3/4 cups powdered sugar
~ 1 stick butter
~ 4 oz cream cheese
~ 1/4 teaspoon salt
~ 2 teaspoons vanilla
Directions:
Add all ingredients to mixing bowl and blend for 2 minutes on medium speed.
