With A Cherry On Top + GIVEAWAY!

Lately, Cherry has been obsessed with cooking! She loves watching cooking shows, pretending to cook in her cubbyhouse and has been begging to cook with me in our kitchen! So this week I thought it would be fun to make Red Velvet Philly Cupcakes together. I found a great recipe in Simply Heaven, a cookbook filled with Philadelphia and Cadbury Chocolate inspired recipes. And guess what… we have one copy to GIVEAWAY!

1 Red Velvet Philly Cupcake cherryandme.comHere’s how we made them:

75g butter, softened
¾ cup caster sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1½ cups flour
¼ cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon red food colouring
1 teaspoon white vinegar
½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
250 Philadelphia frosting Cream Cheese with a hint of Lemon
12 cherries
12 cupcake paper liners

2 Red Velvet Philly Cupcake cherryandme.comIn a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Then add the rest of the ingredients, combine well.

3 Red Velvet Philly Cupcake cherryandme.comEvenly pour the mixture into 12 cupcake paper liners

4 Red Velvet Philly Cupcake cherryandme.comMumma, I wanna eat them now!!!

5 Red Velvet Philly Cupcake cherryandme.comBake in a moderate oven at 180°C for 15–20 minutes. Once cooked, you’ll need to wait for them to cool before applying the frosting.

6 Red Velvet Philly Cupcake cherryandme.comThe cupcakes are finally ready and now Cherry joins in for the frosting

7 Red Velvet Philly Cupcake cherryandme.com For the frosting, we tried Philadelphia’s frosting Cream Cheese with a hint of Lemon. It was so simple! No mixing or adding anything, just spread and go!

8 Red Velvet Philly Cupcake cherryandme.comOur cupcakes wouldn’t be complete without a cherry on top!
