Pink Velvet Cupcakes with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

Pink Velvet
I made these with a white cake mix and added 1/2 package chocolate instant pudding and 5 drops of deep pink AmeriColor food coloring
they baked up nice and pretty pink
for the icing…
I made
  chocolate cream cheese frosting 
one cup butter
one package cream cheese
about 5 cups sifted powdered sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla
2T milk
the cream cheese is usually softer than buttercream so I add more powdered sugar until it thickens and forms high peeks. It dries fast so once you pipe it on add the sprinkles right away-unlike what I did was get sidetracked and it’s quite dry and they don’t stick and start falling all over the place.

they were a big hit at the party!

    These look lovely. Two questions though… #1: What frosting tip did you use to pipe the icing on? #2: Maybe I'm missing something obvious but I don't see what you used to make your butter/cream cheese frosting chocolate. The post says: for the icing…

    I love the pink color and the stiffness of the frosting. Yum Yum. Actually I was also checking out your pink fudge for February. Another yum Yum. I made for the Spring Blog Hop, edible gumdrop flowers that would look lovely on your cupcakes. Hope that you have a chance to check them out. Thanks.
