Red Velvet Cup Cake Recipe

Sweat Treats at Christmas time is always part of the celebration around this house, so I try to prepare them ahead of time, like this Red Velvet Cupcake Recipe. Most of the treats freeze very well so when Christmas comes along all we have to do is take them out of the freezer as needed. The Red Velvet cupcakes are very colorful and good tasting, making it just right for the Holiday’s. It looks like there is a lot to this recipe, but it is really very simple and moves along quicker than you would think. Be careful of the red food coloring though, because if you spill it; it can get out of control pretty easily. Bake some of these Red Velvet cup cakes up for Christmas, and you’ll have a delightful, colorful treat.
