Redlicious Delicious Sweetheart Cupcakes For Your Sweetheart
Here at Julies Cafe Bakery, we just absolutely LOVE to bake. Regardless of whether it’s simple oat meal biscuits, red velvety cookies, strawberry bars, or even apple pie, we’ve got a real talent for whipping up desserts and pastries just like it’s nobody’s business. So we decided to make something special for that sweetheart (and sweettooth) of yours. Something nobody could possibly resist.
A couple weeks back we had been brainstorming some exciting Sweetheart treats to blog about right here on the website and I remembered these cupcakes I discovered which had hearts baked on the inside of them. I performed a bit of research and discovered these surprise heart inside cupcakes were totally doable and comparatively simple to make. We gave them a go and I believe they turned out very well! Here’s the way I made them:
Redlicious Suprise Sweetheart Cupcakes
1. Prepare the Vanilla Cupcake mixture.
- 1 3/4 cups cake flour, not self-rising
- 1 1/4 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
- 2 cups sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Basic Vanilla Buttercream
- Separate mixture into 2 parts: Place one half of the mixture right into a big measuring cup having a (this is to make pouring the actual mixture into the cupcake container less difficult) or a medium sized dish. Put the rest of it into a different bowl and include red food-coloring up until you achieve your required color. (Hint: We made both red as well as pink variations, however the red turned out to be far better since there ended up being a lot more contrast between the two cupcakes.
- Place the cupcake liners directly into a clean cupcake pan.
- Pre-heat oven to 350-degrees.
- Add a couple of tbsp of the normal mixture to every cupcake tin.
- In the mean time, pour red mixture right into a non stick cooking pan to ensure that there’s a thin layer of mixture (around half an inch is great).
- Cook red mixture for around Fifteen to twenty minutes till cooked through. (Hint: It’s actually alright to under-bake all of them a little as they will theoretically be twice baked.)
- Permit the red cupcake to cool down totally. As soon as its cooled down completely, make use of a small heart shaped cookie-cutter to cut out little hearts.
- Place the hearts, vertically plus face-forward in to the cupcake pan. (Hint: It’s really vital that you have them all facing exactly the same direction to ensure that when you ultimately cut them wide open, you will see the gorgeous heart concealed within.)
- As soon as all hearts are positioned, fill the cupcake-pan using regular mixture till ¾ full.
- Cook for about Twenty minutes.
- After they had been cooled, We frosted all of them with fresh made butter-cream icing plus smothered them with pearly sprinkles that we purchased at a nearby craft shop.
