Red Velvet Cupcakes !!


I was very much excited to decorate with my new cake decorating set! Thought of using it first for frosting red velvet cupcakes for my birthday. This was so easy to make & it was a different cupcake recipe with sour cream. In some recipes butter milk is substituted for sour cream.  I had fun frosting the cupcakes and the decorating set was also a cool one!  I used the green & red combo to give it a festive touch :) So this is an X'mas special cake too !!! Here goes the recipe :) :)
