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.
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 🙂
