    Talking Yay!! I just read that cream cheese is ok!! Red velvet cupcakes here I come!

    I was under the impression that cream cheese was bad during pregnancy, but I just read that its ok..

    OHHH BABY RED VELVET CUPCAKES, HERE I COME!! Yuuummmm

    You need to be given a book advising what your ok to eat rather than being told bits and pieces as you go along. I've missed out on 7 months worth of my awesome cupcakes!

    Hopefully this works... This is my recipe.

    INGREDIENTS:
    Icing:
    300g cream cheese
    80g unsalted butter
    2/3 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 ½ cups icing sugar
    Pinch of salt

    NOTE: Refrigerated ingredients should be room temperature before baking. ie, butter, eggs, buttermilk & cream cheese.


    Cake:
    2 ½ cups plain flour, sifted
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    2 tablespoons cocoa
    60mL red food colouring (no, seriously)
    120g unsalted butter
    1 ½ cups sugar
    2 eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 cup buttermilk
    1 teaspoon white vinegar
    1 teaspoon baking soda (different to baking powder)


    METHOD:
    1. Preheat fan-forced oven 180ºC. Set up patty pans
    2. In a medium sized bowl, sift flour, baking powder & salt – set aside
    3. In a small bowl, mix food colour & cocoa powder to form smooth, thin paste – set aside
    4. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about three minutes
    5. Beat eggs separately, then cocoa paste & vanilla extract. Add 1/3 flour mix then beat half of the buttermilk
    6. Beat another 1/3 of flour, second half buttermilk, then last flour mix. Beat well.
    7. In a small bowl, mix vinegar & baking soda. Add to cake batter and beat.
    8. Work quickly to divide batter into cake pans. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until skewer inserted comes out clean.

    Allow cakes to cool before icing.
    1. Beat together cream cheese and butter until smooth
    2. Reduce mixer to low, beat icing sugar, salt & vanilla extract. Increase speed until light and fluffy.
