Red Velvet Cupcakes - Video Recipe

This video will show you how to make Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting.

A red velvet cake is a cake with dark red or brown red color. It is usually prepared as a layer cake topped with cream cheese icing. The reddish color is achieved by adding red food coloring.

I substituted buttermilk with vinegar and milk.
