I have always been intrigued by red velvet cupcakes and more recently so when I have tasted a few red velvet cupcakes from different bakery. Because it is so soft and moist. Recently I used my red velvet cake recipe to make red velvet cupcakes and wasn't too thrilled with the texture anymore. The results: Perfectly soft yet sturdy, super moist and delicious red velvet cupcakes with the perfect "is this is a box cake?" texture and classic, southern red velvet taste. Red velvet cupcakes are by far my family's favorite flavor.
