Red Velvet Cupcakes

It's been a long time I wanted to make these kind of cupcakes. Finally I had the time today to bake them. I took my time and followed the intructions really well. I really wanted to do it right.. and yaaaiiii... it worked!!! My red velvet cupcakes came out nicely and so perfect just like in my dream.

For the frosting I use the Vanilla Cream Frosting that came along with the recipe.

I made 30 cucpakes with this recipe.
