Makes 22 cupcakes

Food icon Heinz has teamed up with the award-winning Hummingbird Bakery to celebrate its 150 year anniversary with a range of five cupcakes with a difference.

This cupcake has many of the same ingredients as Hummingbird’s iconic and much loved Red Velvet with cocoa for a hint of chocolatey flavour and buttermilk for richness and fluffiness. It all sounds very familiar, except for the addition of everyone’s favourite Heinz Tomato Ketchup, adding an irresistible sweetness. The classic cream cheese frosting, with its irresistible creaminess and slight tanginess, works perfectly to balance out the sweet and sharp elements.
