Happy birthday, Paula Deen!! In honor of my most trusted and beloved recipe source, I made my favorite of her recipes–red velvet cupcakes. Surprisingly, out of all her buttery cakes and gooey chocolate bars, these cupcakes are her best dessert yet! (And as a very discriminating red velvet critic myself, that praise means a lot!) But although I am picky in finding the perfect red velvet cupcake, when the recipe is right, the flavor is fantastic because it gives you a touch of chocolate without the overly rich heaviness, and Paula’s deliciously moist cupcake recipe definitely passes the test! Paired with vanilla cream cheese frosting, they make such an incredible dessert, composed of a flavor combination that complements each other perfectly! The best part is that you can be creative with the cupcake designs; play with frosting tips, fill the cupcakes, or add sprinkles and decor! Enjoy!!
