Red velvet cupcakes are easily on my list of favourite cupcakes because they have a bit of everything! They are vanilla cupcakes made with buttermilk and vinegar, so they're sweet yet a little bit tart. They also have a bit of cocoa in to give the sponge a hint of chocolate. Put that together with the cream cheese frosting and you have a truly delicious cupcake. Oh, and they're red! If you fancy having a go then the recipe is below and please don't forget to let me know how you get on.
For the food colouring I use Sugarflair red extra.
