Red Velvet is an interesting cake. It's really not just white cake with red food coloring, which I found out recently. It's a very moist cake made with cocoa powder, buttermilk and no butter. And it goes so nicely with cream cheese frosting. This is my first attempt at homeade red velvet (not from a cake box mix) and I made these for a friend of mine at work. He asked me to make cupcakes for his wife for her birthday and she loved red velvet. So here they are!
I loved the consistency of the cupcake, so moist. And the cream cheese frosting, you just can't go wrong with that!
I found my little heart sprinkles that I have been hoarding and thought they would be a cute touch to these cupcakes, considering it was for the birthday of a loved one.
And I am happy to report, they were well liked by the birthday girl!! Here is the recipe I used...found on my favorite food blog...Annie's Eats: Red Velvet Cupcakes.
