Valentine's Day Treat: Step-by-Step Guide to Decorating Red Velvet Cupcakes

Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius) and lining a muffin tin with cupcake liners. Combine all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, cocoa powder, eggs, milk, vanilla extract, baking soda, salt, and almond extract in a large bowl. Stir in the softened butter until the dough starts to come together. Transfer the dough to the prepared muffin tin and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. 

While the cupcakes are baking, prepare the red velvet frosting. In a separate bowl, combine the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract. Whip until stiff peaks form. Once the cupcakes have cooled, dip the bottom of each cupcake into the frosting, then cover the entire cupcake. Decorate the cupcakes with fresh raspberries and a dollop of whipped cream.
