How to make it

  • For the cupcakes:
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 (12-cup) muffin pans with cupcake papers.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder.
  • In a large bowl gently beat together the oil, buttermilk, eggs, food coloring, vinegar, and vanilla with a handheld electric mixer.
  • Add the sifted dry ingredients to the wet and mix until smooth and thoroughly combined.
  • Divide the batter evenly among the cupcake tins about 2/3 filled.
  • Bake in oven for about 20 to 22 minutes, turning the pans once, half way through. Test the cupcakes with a toothpick for doneness.
  • Remove from oven and cool completely before frosting.
  • For the Cream Cheese Frosting:
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter and vanilla together until smooth.
  • Add the sugar and on low speed, beat until incorporated. Increase the speed to high and mix until very light and fluffy.
  • Garnish with chopped pecans and a fresh raspberry or strawberry.
