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.
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.
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
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon baking soda (different to baking powder)
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.
