Spooky Black Velvet Cupcakes

blackvelvet2 Spooky Black Velvet Cupcakes

I hate Halloween food that looks gory or gross. Give me something genuinely artistic and ever-so-slightly creepy, however, and Im all for celebrating the season of spooks. This fun, simple recipe for Spooky Black Velvet cupcakes offers a twist to the traditional red velvet cake you likely know and love. Topped with simple little chocolate trees, this is one Halloween recipe youre gonna love to share!

2 cups canola oil
2 cups granulated sugar
3 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 teaspoon black gel food coloring
3 cups flour
cup cocoa powder (I used Hersheys Special Dark)
1 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon vinegar

1 (8 oz.) box cream cheese
4 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups powdered sugar
orange gel food coloring

In a large bowl, beat together oil, sugar, eggs, vanilla, buttermilk, and gel food coloring. In a second, medium bowl, stir together the flour, cocoa powder, salt and baking powder. Slowly start to beat the dry ingredients into the wet just until they are all fully incorporated. In a small bowl, mix together the baking soda and vinegar. Beat into the batter until incorporated then spoon into muffin tins lined with cupcake wrappers. Bake in an oven preheated to 350 degrees for 18-20 minutes, or just until the center of the cupcakes bounce back when touched lightly. Cool completely before frosting.

In a large bowl, beat together the cream cheese, butter and shortening. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla, then beat until light and fluffy. Color with food coloring, if desired.
