Red velvet cupcakes

Red Velvet Cupcake Muffin Christmas recipe
Red Velvet Cupcake
I am in love with these cupcakes. I always wanted to make it….. its like dream come true. Recently I went to one of my friends house where I tasted red velvet 3 layer slice cake. It was wonderful…..buttery,moist full of vanilla flavor with a little hint of chocolate. The cream cheese frosting was awesome but I made my frosting with vanilla, butter and sugar. This tastes good too. I will give you  the recipe of both vanilla butter and cheese frosting separately. Buttermilk is a must for these cupcakes. Red velvet cake just can't be made without buttermilk. Vinegar is also must for these cupcakes….Surprised? Just follow the recipe.
