Red Velvet Cupcakes

I brag about my sweet tooth all the time, but I rarely get a chance to tout my stove top victories. Yesterday, I baked Pinch My Salt's red velvet cupcake recipe for my loved ones OK, for myself. These suckers were moist with the right amount of cocoa. I added more powdered sugar, vanilla extract and food coloring where I saw fit. Surprisingly, wasn't as messy as I thought. I tried to prep prior to baking (that's a stretch for me)!

I have yet to meet one person that doesn't like red velvet, but its great for birthdays and Valentine's Day.
Read on for the recipe for the cupcakes and frosting:
