After the two chocolate cupcakes in a row, here is a different one which is a favourite for most of the people I know. Red velvet is is my favourite too. Even though some are not very keen on the food colour used, I don’t mind tasting this once in a while. But still I need to try a recipe using beetroot for those who wants the all natural cupcake. These red velvet cupcakes are made with oil and so these can be decorated with cream frosting and can be refrigerated without loosing the moistness. And like most of the eggless cakes, this is a one bowl recipe. Mix everything in a bowl and bake.
I used my cream cheese butter cream to frost the cupcake and as you can see, it holds the piping very well. I was so happy with the combination. They tasted so yum together. I have given the link to the frosting at the end of this post. And don’t forget to take a look at the video also. These cupcakes are best for celebrations as they look so grand and out of the world. I hope you try it. These turn out very soft and spongy.
