Red Velvet Cupcakes

Learn To Create The Most Delicious Red Velvet Cupcakes With Photos And Free Tutorials


Red Velvet doesn't just have to be in the form of a cake. It's so delicious that you'd be crazy not to try it in cupcake form! You can also try it with mini cupcakes for something a little more bite-sized.

Have I mentioned that Red Velvet is my favorite kind of cupcake? I love the look and the flavor but I also like to add a few little things myself to my red velvet recipe.

You can also either make them from scratch or use a boxed cake mix recipe, both are great. And you really can't top it with anything more delicious than a rich creamcheese icing, which is almost my favorite part of the whole process!

If you're looking for something amazing try adding chocolate-covered strawberries on top!
