Red Velvet Cupcakes are so yummy. The original Red Velvet batter was made by accident when the vinegar added to a recipe gave the cake a red tint. Well in this modern age, we expect to see a red velvet cake RED, not a brownish red, we want a bright RED, so food coloring is also added to color these lovely pieces of heaven.
I use a powdered red food coloring. If you do not have access to powdered food colorings that is okay. Check the notes section of the recipe for substitutes.
