Velvet cupcakes

After a two week hiatus, I agreed to take on an order for red velvet cupcakes with chocolate frosting. These look more like muffins or almost chocolate cupcakes because I didn’t use red food coloring. (I admit, they look a little odd with the cake and icing being almost the same color.) Why is it that everyone loves red velvet? I ran out of red food coloring a while ago, and with work being as insane as it has been lately, I haven’t had time to get the special “no taste red” food coloring. I only have the cheap, watery, gag-inducing, super bitter red food coloring, and considering that red velvet cake batter requires a ton of it, I refuse to use it. So I made plain velvet cupcakes with chocolate frosting. I had a lot of extra batter so I made little mini cupcakes and cream cheese frosting to go with it. I don’t know what to do with all these extra ones since I don’t eat them and Vin can only bring so many for lunch, so maybe my co-workers might get a freebie tomorrow…
