Red Velvet Cupcakes with Brach's mini hearts

In the spirit and celebration of Valentine's Day, I thought I baked a quick batch of cupcakes out of the cake mix .... cheat cheat. I also have to confess, as tasty and as sumptous Red Velvet cakes sound and look, I just can't stand of making my own red velvet cakes from scratch as usually the recipe calls for lots of RED food color. Thus, I always resulted to using the cake mix so I can pretend all is good as the mix always miraculously produces and renders those beautiful velvety red cakes... and they taste yummy too.

Without further ado, lets get started. I am using Betty Crocker Red Velvet cake mix to bake these cupcakes with a little tweak on the directions.

Here they are:

1 box of red velvet cake mix
3 eggs separated
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup water
3/4 cup oil


In mixing bowl, start mixing egg white in slow speed and gradually bring up the speed to medium high. As the egg white begins to thicken, slowly add in sugar until all the sugar are mixed in, Continue to beat egg white until it forms a stiff peak, stop the beating and set aside.

While egg white is still beating, in a separate bowl, mix oil and sugar until combined. Mix in egg yolk and mix well. Mix in flour. Alternately, add and mix in cake mix and water until well incorporated. Fold in egg white to cake mixture but do not over mix.

Prepare and line 24 standard cupcake pans, drop by the spoonful cake batter into cake pans.
Bake cupcakes for 18-20 mins until toothpick comes out clean. Do not over baked cupcakes.

Frost with buttercream. Topped each cupcake with a mini heart. Enjoy!
