Step 1
  • Heat the oven to 175 °. Put 12 large muffin cases on a baking tray. Beat the butter and sugar together until creamy. Add the eggs one at a time beating gently. Stir in the milk and food colouring.
Step 2
  • Mix flour, cocoa powder, vanilla sugar and a teaspoon of salt together and then stir into the sugar and butter mixture. Stir in the vinegar and baking soda - it will begin to bubble. Stir until all ingredients are well mixed.
Step 3
  • Spoon the mixture into the muffin cases. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 20 minutes. Let cool.
Step 4
  • Beat the cream cheese, butter and vanilla sugar into a soft mixture. Then add in the icing sugar a little at a time and continue whisking to a smooth and glossy cream.
Step 5
  • Spoon a little of the cream on the top of each cooled cupcake. Finally garnish with strawberry sprinkles or raspberries.
