You wouldn't think that Red Bull could make cupcakes taste delicious -but it definitely does. My boyfriend doesn't like sweets, yet he LOVES these cupcakes! They're perfect for kids or fun parties.
Instead of cupcakes, I used this recipe to make a two-layer cake. It came out great, and it's definitely one of the prettiest cakes that I've made thanks to the bright vivid colors (don't skimp on the food coloring, for sure). I actually love the strange, tangy taste of Red Bull, and was really hoping the cake would end up tasting like it. Alas, I could not taste the Red bull at all, and the cake instead tasted like Cap'n Crunch berries. I don't know why, it just did, but that's OK... I've always liked Cap'n Crunch berries.
I DON'T like Red Bull (not even a little), But these cupcakes honestly don't taste like red bull too much. They have a flavor all there own and its awesome. We made some for school and everyone loved them. <br/><br/>The whole ounce of red food coloring may seem like a lot, but it's not. It doesn't mess with the flavor. I recommend using Blue Gel food coloring for the icing. The liquid coloring may mess with the consistency a bit.<br/><br/>Be sure you actually still a toothpick in them to check them when baking. Don't guess by looking at them because they wont look like they're done due to the red bull making them look sticky-ish and shiny on top.<br/><br/>I'll be adding pictures when we bake a second batch tomorrow.
If you like Red Bull, You'll love these... they are super sweet and not for the faint of heart but I made these for my brother who is a huge Red bull fan and he LOVED them. The colors tend to turn a few people away but really attract the kids.
I'm not sure what to say about this recipe. I made it, it was kind of weird but I tried to stick it out. They came out of the oven looking perfect. The flavor, however, was similar to how your mouth tastes the next morning after a night spent drinking too many Jaegerbombs. Adding the Red Bull to the frosting gave it a weird consistency. Approach this with caution.
