Red Velvet Cupcake: Cute cupcake, to put a smile on your face.

Red velvet cupcake is cute ^^, and the look of it always bring a smile on people face (well some of them are surprised, haha). The bright red color of the soft and moist cake, and the light chocolate flavor make this cake many people favorite.

This cake's fun to make, and beautiful to look at.  it's my second time for  Red Velvet Cake. I made the Red velvet cake before in "Chicken Farm Special Project: The Quest for The Real Red Velvet Cake!" and it's a long time ago.
I think about making it again when I received an e-mail from one of the reader, she asked for the cupcake version of this amazing cake. I don't believe that it's a good idea to use the same recipe that I used before, I'm here to try the recipes, hehe.
This time I choose the recipe from ..................
The first time that I made these cake, I use Wilton coloring gel, and I think the color is a bit dull, not as red as I want. So this time I change the brand I use Extra red from  Sugarfair brand, so I need less but if you want your cupcake to be as red as me you might need more than 1/4 tsp of the coloring (but remember that a lot of coloring can cause some funny taste in the cake cake too). And yes, I got a very red effect!
When mixing the baking soda and white wine vinegar, wait until it foamy and pour it in the batter but don't scrap the bowl you need only the liquid part of it, or you will add the baking soda that stop reacting and cause bitter taste in the cupcake too.
It will be bad to talk about the look of the cake without paying attention to the taste of it too. And this cake is as delicious as it's cute ^^, the milk buttercream is great to use in this recipe, beside from taste good, it's very easy to use. 
Serve it with a cup of tea or coffee, you will bring a great smile to the one that you love for sure.

Hi, if your cake shrinks, you may need to reduce the temperature of your oven to 170C, and adjust the baking time ^^.
