You’ll need:


Red Velvet Cupcakes – Makes 24 cupcakes

  1. 1 large bowl
  2. 2 cupcake pans
  3. 24 cupcake paper cups
  4. 1 red velvet cake mix (amount should make 24 cupcakes!)
  5. 3 large eggs
  6. ⅓ cup of vegetable oil
  7. 1 cup of water


Cheese Cream Frosting – Enough for 24 Cupcakes

  1. 1 large bowl
  2. 1 container of plastic wrap
  3. 1 hand mixer
  4. 2 sticks softened or melted butter
  5. 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  6. 4 cups of confectioners’ sugar
  7. (Optional) 1 container of pink pearl sprinkles



  1. For the cupcakes, put all the ingredients into the large bowl and mix it for about 2 minutes and 30 seconds or according to the box if it says otherwise.  After about 30 seconds make sure to start beating the mix as well so that most of the bumps in the cake mix are gone.
  2. Once done mixing, prepare the cupcake pans by putting in the cupcake cups and spraying them with cooking spray or put butter onto them then proceed to pour the cake mix into the cupcake pans.
  3. Have the oven preheated to 350° and put the cupcake pan into the oven once done preheating. Bake for about 19 minutes or according to the cake mix instructions.
  4. While your waiting for the cupcakes put all the cream cheese frosting ingredients except the confectioners’ sugar and start to mix it with the hand mixer on a low speed. Add the sugar in slowly and in big spoonfuls until you have 4 cups. This may take a while, so if you need to, take out the cupcakes and allow them to cool in the fridge. If you add the frosting while the cupcakes are warm, the frosting will melt.
  5. Let the frosting cool by putting plastic wrap over the bowl and putting it in the fridge for about 5 minutes. Take the frosting and the cupcakes out of the fridge and frosting the cupcakes any way you like. If desired, put pink pearls on top of the frosting.
  6. Serve and enjoy.


I hope you have lots of fun making these cupcakes for friends and family!
