Yong: Due to my oversight, Mika should has it vaccine in July, but I presume it's in Jun. So, Mika just take his weight, get his worm medication and vitamin C. I have to plan another leave in July...

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cocoa powder
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
1 cup buttermilk, room temperature
2 large eggs, room temperature
2 tablespoons red food coloring
1 teaspoon white distilled vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the Cream Cheese Frosting:(I only made 1/2 of the ingredient)
1 pound cream cheese, softened
2 sticks butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
Chopped fresh raspberries or strawberries, for garnish( I use colour sprinkles since that the only that I have)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 (12-cup) muffin pans with cupcake papers.
In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder. In a large bowl gently beat together the oil, buttermilk, eggs, food coloring, vinegar, and vanilla with a handheld electric mixer. Add the sifted dry ingredients to the wet and mix until smooth and thoroughly combined.
Divide the batter evenly among the cupcake tins about 2/3 filled. Bake in oven for about 20 to 22 minutes, turning the pans once, half way through. Test the cupcakes with a toothpick for doneness. Remove from oven and cool completely before frosting.
For the Cream Cheese Frosting:
In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter and vanilla together until smooth. Add the sugar and on low speed, beat until incorporated. Increase the speed to high and mix until very light and fluffy.
Mika: This is what it look like. I don't know why Kak Dik love this cupcake so much! May be because of the cream cheese....

Mika: Yong I want my dinner prompt o, I see you start measuring the cake ingredient. I bet that my dinner will be at 8.00pm
Yong: The ugly cake! You can compare with Kak Rima's:http://www.bisousatoi.com/2010/11/salam-aidil-adha-2010.html
Yong: The cake taste is delicious despite the not so good looking cake. I'm not sure what I have done wrong, I will try again this cake within 2 weeks time. This weekend I made promise to my sister to make cupcakes she graving for a long time. I already found the recipe in Food Network Channel. I hope will not face the same thing with this cupcake.
