Awww love is definitely in the air. Can you feel it? If you can’t, then these Red Velvet Raspberry Cupcakes are sure to get you in the loving mood.
Red velvet is the quintessential flavor for Valentine’s Day. The perfectly red color is cupid’s favorite, and its dash of chocolate is a sweetheart’s dream. I knew a month ago that I definitely wanted to make red velvet cupcakes for the holiday but with a fun twist. BHG, of course, provided the perfect recipe. Finding these Red Velvet Raspberry Cupcakes in their recipe collection was a dream come true.
I didn’t plan on making one single change to this recipe because I adored it as is. The only thing I did was add a pinch of red food coloring to the frosting to create a fun pink color perfect for Valentine’s Day.
These are simply darling. The cupcakes are perfectly moist with the whisper of chocolate flavor I love in red velvet. And the cream cheese frosting is fantastically fluffy with a hint of raspberry flavor which takes it over the top. I used a fun piping tip for the frosting to dress these up for the sweethearts in my life. Then each cupcake got its personal cherry (really raspberry) on top.
The results were just what I wanted for the holiday. Make these for the ones you want to feel loved on Valentine’s Day, and they will feel exactly that.
