Red Relvet Cupcakes with Royal Icing

Hey everyone,

Sorry i’ve been away. I was at home in Calgary for the holidays. It was great! I made this recipe for a few of my friends and I hope you will enjoy it as much as they did!

This cupcake recipe only has 3 steps.

1. Mix all the wet ingredients together and add the red food coloring.

2. Add the dry ingredients and mix well.

3. Pour into each muffin cup and into the oven it goes! Only fill the muffin cups halfway up.


Royal Icing

Two egg whites and icing sugar. Whip whip whip! Once you form soft peaks, add a tablespoon of lemon juice and whip again until you reach a spreadable consistency.


When I cut into this cupcake, it was fairly moist. The color was amazing! Definitely fitting of the Christmas season (red, green, and white). However, the next day, the bottom of the cupcakes were oily. Just like most recipes, you can cut back on the oil by about 1/2 a cup and add a few more tablespoons of yogurt to compensate.
