Red Velvet Cupcake

This cake is moist in texture and tasty due to the use of cocoa powder. A perfect companion for your afternoon espresso or latte. In order to maintain the cleanliness of your kitchen, it will be very handy if you cover your countertop with baking paper or lots of tissue, so it will be very easy to clean all the red splashes.
