No, I won't be wearing red velvet.
I've had far more not-up-to-par red velvet cupcakes than I have delicious ones. In fact, at this point I'm not even sure what they are supposed to taste like, so different are they! Tired of paying between $3 and $6 for cupcakes that taste like pure sugar (which I can eat at home for more like ten cents, thank you very much,) I've decided to find the ultimate recipe for Red Velvet Cupcakes (including the only suitable frosting for such a delicacy: cream cheese!)
I made this first batch in honor of the Fourth of July (and my love of cake, lol!)
I didn't want to make a full batch, so I decreased both recipes by one-fourth.....and used one egg white. This recipe was suggested to me by @HowSweetBlog. She also has a recipe for Red Velvet, which will be used in Trial #3.
I have a feeling that this first recipe is going to be tough to beat. It tasted a bit like this:

Have you got a recipe for Red Velvet you think I should try?
Hope you had a great Holiday!
Linking up with fellow bloggers for a Red, White and You giveaway!

p.s. Have you seen the Seinfeld episode in which George decides he is going to wear velvet every day?
