Bloody Knife Cupcakes
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees—line cupcake tins with paper liners.
- Put cocoa powder, flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a bowl, whisking until thoroughly combined. Set aside.
- In another bowl, add the eggs, granulated sugar, brown sugar, oil, and vanilla, whisking until completely smooth.
- Add half of the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and half of the buttermilk.
- Gently whisk together.
- Add the rest of the wet ingredients and buttermilk and stir to combine. The batter will be a little thin.
- Scoop batter into cupcake paper liners until 3/4 full.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes.
- Allow to cool for 10 minutes while in the cupcake pan. Remove from the cupcake pan, placing on a wire rack until completely cool.
- Cream the butter and powdered sugar until it looks light and creamy. If it's not creaming together well, add several drops of heaving whipping cream until it does.
- Take a spoonful of frosting and turn the spoon upside down. If the frosting stays on the spoon, it is ready. If not, add more powder sugar 1/2 C at a time, mix well, and test again.
- Scoop the frosting into a pastry bag with a round tip. Twist the open end of the pastry bag to push the frosting to the tip.
- Start by frosting on the outside edge of the cupcake working to the center of the cupcake.
- For the knife topping, drip some red gel onto the sides of the frosting.
- Stick the candy knife in the center of the frosted cupcake.
