Great cupcakes to make for that special someone.
- 1 package white cake mix
- 1 ¼ teaspoons unflavored gelatin
- 5 teaspoons cold water
- 1 ¼ cups heavy whipping cream
- 5 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
- Red food coloring
Prepare and bake cake batter according to package directions for cupcakes. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
In a small saucepan, sprinkle gelatin over water; let stand for 1 minute to soften. Heat over low heat, stirring until gelatin is completely dissolved. Remove from the heat; cool.
In a large bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add sugar, vanilla and gelatin mixture; beat until soft peaks form. Set aside 1 cup for decorating.
Spread remaining frosting over tops of cupcakes. Divide reserved frosting in half; tint one portion pink and the other red.
