Red Velvet Cream Cheese Frosting Dino Cupcakes

Red Velvet and cream cheese is a dynamic duo and dream when you add dinosaur decorations. Barefoot Contessa and Duncan Hines both have Red Velvet cake mix, which is a time saver and prevents the red food coloring fiasco.

Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 4 ounces unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a large bowl, beat together the butter and cream cheese with mixer. With the mixer on low speed, add the powdered sugar a cup at a time until smooth and creamy. Beat in the vanilla extract.

I found these adorable paper dino cupcake toppers at E.A.T. in NYC owned by Eli Zabar Toys at E.A.T.
