-Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

-Mix the flour, sugar, dark cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.
-In a separate bowl add the eggs, whole milk, oil, and vanilla.
-Add the bowl containing the eggs, whole milk, oil, and vanilla to the bowl holding the dry ingredients.

-Remove from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
-Take the cupcakes out of the pan then place on a wire rack to allow them to completely cool.
-Cream the butter and powder sugar until it looks light and creamy.
-If it doesn’t cream add several drops of the heavy whipping cream until it creams.
-Test to see if the frosting can form and hold a stiff peak by taking a spoonful of frosting and turning the spoon upside down. If the frosting stays on the spoon it is ready if not then….
– Add more powder sugar 1/2 C at a time…. mix well.
-Divide the frosting into two bowls.
-In the first bowl add the vanilla extract, with a mixer stirring to mix in all the ingredients.
-Next add in the black gel food coloring to this frosting. Again, mix well to blend the black color throughout the bowl of frosting.

-Next add the red gel food coloring into this frosting. Then mix well to blend the red color throughout this bowl of frosting.
-When ready scoop the black frosting into a side of a pastry bag with a large tip.
-Scoop the red frosting into the same pastry bag on another side of the bag.
-Twist the open end of the pastry bag to push the frosting to the tip to make sure that the colors have intertwined.
