Best Red Velvet Cake or Cupcakes Recipe

Red velvet is one of my favourite cakes. Everyone thinks it’s really fancy, but let’s get real here – it’s super easy. Just think of it as a mellowed chocolate cake with some kick (all thanks to our buddy vinegar). In the past, I religiously used the Magnolia Bakery Red Velvet cake from their great cookbook, but found it to be a tad dry and dense, so I decided to switch it this time to Chef Cake Man Raven‘s Red Velvet Cake recipe.

Fried Pickles
