The recipe for the cream cheese frosting makes a modest amount, as these are small cupcakes, and I didn’t want the cupcake to be top-heavy. These are meant to be small treats.

I used Erythritol in the recipe for the cream cheese frosting, making this grain-free, sugar-free red velvet cupcake, keto-friendly.
