What are Red Velvet Cupcakes?

​​Red velvet is a cake that is red in colour or could also be, red-brown or crimson. The basic flavouring in this cake comes from buttermilk, vinegar and cocoa powder. The simple cake batter is used to make many different variations of cake like swiss rolls and cupcakes. Traditionally the red velvet cake was accompanied with French buttercream that is made by mixing butter and sugar, but now as the taste developed and became more popular, the modern versions of the cake are made with cream cheese frosting.

    Expert Tips

    1. Do not mix the batter too much after adding the flour as it might result in a dense cake.
    2. Fill the cupcake tray only halfway, or it might overflow while baking.
    3. Make sure to not apply the frosting on a hot cupcake or the frosting will melt.
