My Favorite Red Velvet Cupcakes

Yes. Here’s how I know: I’m dating a faaaaantastic man who… doesn’t know the difference between a pie and a cake… a muffin and a cupcake. Funny, right? This has to be a joke… right? Nope. Ok. Me: Simon, what do you want for your birthday? Me: Hey Simon! Ok… maybe these two conversations are a bit of an exaggeration. Perhaps making up for his mix-ups, Simon is one hell of a cupcake decorator. Now, I’d like to introduce you to my absolute favorite Red Velvet Cupcake recipe with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting.

Chocolate Peppermint Roll with chocolate ganache

Own every last bit of it. Don’t send your Christmas cards out until you’re good and ready. Wear neon purple tights with a grey dress… why not ? Go heavy on the gold eyeshadow…tis the season. Green nail polish? Fashion your cakes into a roll and slice generous portions for yourself, and skinnier portions for other people. Whatever it is: own it!

The secret to this roll cake is its spongy texture. The spongy texture comes from eggs. Want to know the other good news about this cake? It’s GLUTEN FREE!
