Red Velvet Cupcakes + White Chocolate Buttercream

Product Code: R0270

This recipe featuring LorAnn's Red Velvet Bakery Emulsion was developed for us by blogger Marcella from Hey Modest Marce.  It's bound to be your new go-to red velvet recipe!  

Marcella writes, "This recipe can certainly be made into an 8-inch cake if you double it, but for festive gatherings I think cupcakes make so much more sense. People get to grab what they want & serve themselves! Easy for the hostess & guest. plus, you get way more frosting if you pipe cupcakes as high as I do. When white chocolate is involved, you best not be skimpy! If you think red velvet cake must have cream cheese frosting, then try infusing some white chocolate into your favourite cream cheese frosting recipe too. Just trust me & add that white chocolate."
