This long weekend I thought of getting a little constructive on the "home front".. specially with the holiday season setting in..
So here is what I ended up with.... Red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting...
Here is what you will need...
1) 1/2 cup butter
2) 8 oz cream cheese
3) 2-3 cups powdered sugar (I used only 11/2 cups)
4) 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Get all your ingredients ready... toss them together in a bowl and blend. Once you have a smooth paste ready, transfer it to a freezer ziploc stash away in the refrigerator.
Next, lets get the supplies for the cupcake batter...
Mix up he ingredients into a smooth batter and pour them into the cupcake tray with liners...and let them bake at 375C for 20 minutes.
So these are ready....now wait about 30-40 minutes till they are completely cooled off..
Then start icing..there is a little trick for that...just cut off a little edge of the ziploc that's in the fridge ( it forms a cone and is easy to dispense...with no mess) ....taaadaa..
Took them to my work place today..friends loved them.... :D..
