Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

Red Velvet Cakes have become a favorite throughout Male. If I say I am the first person to introduce Red Velvet cakes decorated as birthday cakes in Maldives I don’t think it would be a lie, not only red velvet Tiramisu, Milk cake, Chocolate Mousse Cake. after I started making these cakes for birthdays slowly these cakes started existing on dessert showcases of Bakeries, pastry shops and cafes. Even decorated cookies, This is the truth some won't accept. Red Velvet Cake is just a chocolate cake with red food coloring. Red Velvet cake with cream cheese frosting is one of the most delicious dessert anyone could ever taste. Bake these cupcakes and prepare to get smoochy!
For the cupcakes:
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoon vegetable oil
3/4 cup sugar
1 large eggs
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 tsp red food color ( will recommend paste color)
1/2  teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup + 2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoon corn flour
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon white vinegar
For the frosting:
125 grms cream cheese, at room temperature
50 grms unsalted butter
2 cups icing sugar
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
Make the cupcakes:
1_Preheat the oven to 160 C. Line a cupcake pan with 12  liners.
2_In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or with a hand mixer, beat together the oil, buttermilk, eggs, , vanilla extract and red food coloring until the mixture is well combined.
3_In a separate medium bowl, sift together the flour, corn flour, sugar, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, 1/2 a cup at a time, mixing between each addition to avoid any lumps in the batter and last at vinegar and mix well. 

4_ Fill each cupcake liner about 3/4 full with batter and bake for 18 to 20 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Transfer the cupcakes to a cooling rack to cool completely while you make the frosting.
Make the frosting:
5_In the bowl of a stand mixer, or hand mixer beat the cream cheese and butter until smooth. Shift icing sugar into the bowl, beating to combine, then add the vanilla extract. Scrape down any cream cheese from the sides of the bowl, and then mix well until frosting gets a nice shine. You can frost your cupcakes right away but this frosting won’t hold it’s shape right after mixing so it needs to be chilled for 4 hour’s before frosting to hold it’s shape.
How to make buttermilk
Mix 1/2 tsp vinegar or 1 tsp lime juice to 1/2 cup full cream milk and leave 5 minutes. It's ready to use after five minutes.
