Red Velvet Cupcakes are commonly heavy on the chocolate flavor but this recipe is uncommon and offers only a hint of cocoa. The rich butter, buttermilk, and vanilla create a full flavored cake that is moist and dense. The cream cheese frosting is the rich and tangy buttercream that usually accompanies red velvet cake. For a lighter colored cupcake, use less food coloring. A deep red is great for Valentine’s Day, a light pink for Easter..
