Red Velvet Cupcakes with White Chocolate Frosting- Sweet Saturday

Hello everybody I hope all you have had a great week and are enjoying your weekend! I am currently enjoying watching the Florida at Alabama football game. I always love when Florida and Alabama face off because since I live in Florida but am a huge Alabama fan, I get to enjoy the rivalry between a lot of people I know. Today, I will be munching on these cupcakes while I watch the game and they are certainly delicious. The cupcakes are great but the real kicker is the frosting. This white chocolate frosting is super rich and makes a great combo with these cupcakes.


 
Ingredients:
2.5 cups cake flour
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon
1.5 cups sugar
1.5 cups vegetable oil
2 eggs
red food coloring (about 50 drops)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup buttermilk
1.5 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons white vinegar
 
Frosting Ingredients:
6 ounces white chocolate, melted
1 cup unsalted butter
2 cups confectioners sugar
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
 
Directions:

In a medium bowl combine cake flour, cocoa powder, and salt. In a larger mixing bowl, add together sugar, oil, eggs, food coloring, and vanilla.
Alternating between buttermilk, and flour mixture to wet ingredients, mixing between additions.
In a small bowl whisk together baking soda and white vinegar. Whisk baking soda mixture into cupcake batter. Fill lined tins with batter and bake for 20 minutes. Let cool before frosting.
 
Frosting Directions:
