We love cupcakes in our home and this recipe for Red Velvet Cupcakes is easy and moist. I love these little droppers filled with red velvet syrup that I picked up on Amazon for my dessert.
Red Velvet Cupcakes
I love the dense, moist flavor of adding pudding to the cupcakes. Now I know this not a traditional red velvet cupcake because I did not add red food coloring to the actual batter. I thought by adding Torani red velvet syrup into the actual cupcake after it has been baked gives that delicious red velvet cake taste.

I love making these cupcakes and they are such a huge hit because you are allowing your guests to get involved and play with their food by injecting the syrup. These can easily be altered for a gory Halloween cupcake but to me they just look plain cute and delicious!
