The Red Velvet Cupcake

Getting an opportunity to taste from the best in the world is like a dream come true. Yes, I am talking about the Cheesecake Factory. After having a Steak Diane, the chef himself suggested to pick the Red velvet Cheesecake!!! Wow, it was a treat for my eyes to see the color combination. Moreover, the taste took me to some other world.

This flavor made me to do a small research on it. Yes, I converted the red velvet cake into a cupcake!
There was a balance in the flavor of each and every ingredient.Through this blog, I would like to share with you the recipe of the Red Velvet cupcake.
