Red Velvet Cupcakes

Oh my goshhhh, finally!! A red velvet cupcake recipe on Red Velvet Snow!!! Red Velvet Cupcakes are by far one of my favorite desserts, and I have a red velvet brownie recipe coming your way in the next week or so. I love red velvet anything, any time of year… but for this holiday season they are so festive!! My mom makes me red velvet cake every year on my birthday, and she spent years trying and trying different recipes for the perfect cake (you go, girl.) Finally, she found this recipe. It is so fantastic. Seeing as though I love this recipe so much, I decided to just make this recipe for my cupcakes.

The recipe is from a website called Chowhound, and you can find it here! I topped them with these little cute sugar stocking candies from Wilton. You can find them here!

However, I accidentally added a .25 bottle of red food coloring instead of a 1 ounce bottle of food coloring…. ugh! It didn’t effect (or affect? seriously, what’s that rule again? English isn’t my strong suite… I can take the derivative of a formula like nobody’s business though- rant over) the taste at all. These still had such a great cocoa taste, and still tasted just like the cake my mom makes on my birthday every year.

For  many red velvet recipes, you have to combine baking soda with vinegar, and that is the KEY. This recipe, doesn’t call for that and I have noticed no difference between this recipe and the ones that do call for that. In fact, this is by far mine and my family’s favorite recipe. Like I said, Peg (my mom) spent a lot of time searching and making different recipes (what a team player)

So, below, you’ll find the printable recipe for these red velvet cupcakes along with a basic cream cheese frosting!
