Ingredients

1 box red velvet cake mix, plus ingredients called for on box
2 (8-oz.) blocks cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. powdered sugar
2 tbsp. heavy cream
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350º and line a muffin pan with cupcake liners. Prepare red velvet cake batter according to box directions. Divide batter among liners and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 18 to 20 minutes. Let cool completely. Break 4 cupcakes into small crumbs.
