As many of you know last month I went to L.A. Cookie Con. While I was there I bought some Russian pipping tips! I’ve wanted some ever since they came out. They’re so cool and unique, I see people all over the internet making beautiful creations with the Russian tips and I wanted to as well. But first let me shared recipe of the best red velvet cake pops in the universe.

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 tps vanilla extract
  • 1-2 drops red food coloring
  • 1 teaspoon white distilled vinegar

Instructions

  5. Mix in the eggs, buttermilk, vanilla and red food coloring until combined.
  6. Stir in the coffee and white vinegar.
  7. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients a little at time, mixing after each addition, just until combined. (Batter will be thin)
  8. Pour the batter evenly into each pan.
  9. Bake in the middle rack for 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out with moist crumbs clinging to it. Do not over bake as cake will continue to cook as it cools.
  10. Let pans cool on a cooling rack until the pans are warm to the touch.
  11. Slide a knife or offset spatula around the inside of the pans to loosen the cake from the pan.
  12. Gently remove the cakes from the pan and let them finish cooling. (The warm cake will be very delicate)
  13. Frost the cake with cream cheese frosting when the cakes have cooled completely.
