Red Velvet Buttercream Frosting For Cupcakes

Recently, I had to make some quick, but Christmassy looking cupcakes for a charity Christmas fair, so I decided to use my good old Low Sugar Chocolate Cupcakes recipe and add some fancy frosting. Lovely, velvety, Christmassy red. The cupcakes are ready in 35-40 minutes and the frosting should only take another 20-25 minutes plus cooling in the fridge (about 10-15 minutes). I don’t have the luxury of baking all afternoon, I have no time for that. Preparing the frosting whilst  baking the cupcake batches can save a lot of time. And they look fabulous! (They also double up as Valentine’s cupcakes.)



350g of sifted powdered sugar (first sift, then measure)
230g of soft tramadol online no rx butter
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1 tbsp of milk
2 tsp of Wilton Red Food Colouring Gel (available at Lakeland)


In a medium bowl mix the butter and the vanilla extract with electric mixer until it’s smooth and creamy. Add the powdered sugar and the milk and mix them in on a slow speed. Add the food colouring gel and with a paddle spoon mix it into your frosting. Add more food gel for deeper colour or less for a vintage look. Done! I normally pop it in the fridge for 10-15 minutes to avoid too runny frosting. Using a frosting bag and a nozzle you can now decorate your cake.
