Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

How perfect are red velvet cupcakes for Valentine’s Day? They’re strikingly dark red, the color of love. And not coincidentally, the color of food coloring :)

I’ve tried other recipes but I still always come back to The Pastry Queen’s cupcake as my favorite. It’s the way a buttermilk cake is supposed to be: moist, tender, and tangy.

Get the recipe!

If you’re a little geeky like us and interested in this kind of thing, you should check out The Way the Cookie Crumbles. Bridget has done a comparison of several red velvet recipes. I’ve tried almost all of them. And I think that you should, too :)
